When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”~ Paul Coelho

"Some Mad Hope..."
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.

Paint What You Love

On this beautiful day in Ocean County, NJ, where temperatures reached a perfect 75 degrees, I marked my return to school for another year of teaching Art at the Primary Learning Center.I also managed to paint. I have so much in progress and now an overwhelming amount of other teaching related responsibilities to complete as well. Somehow, the busier I am, the better able I am to manage my art career.

With several upcoming exhibits approaching, it is time to paint,complete and move forward with new ideas. Here is further progress on some current work.
As I near completion, I'll post the resulting images and elaborate further on the process and motivation for these paintings.Really it is quite simple... I paint what I love.I am inspired by love and I love the technical aspect of the painting process. I'll be sure to keep you posted:)
