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.
Jane Harrison

On Top Of My Head

10 years ago, while a passenger driving to Florida on vacation, I began a children's book for Christina and Robert entitled: On Top of My Head. I have revised ,edited and abandoned it multiple times. I had no idea that nearly a decade later, the title would take on new meaning...and would inspire a series of paintings. I didn't even paint at that time or believe I ever would. So now I am revisiting the book and paintings to illustrate it...for Christina and Robert...On Top of My Head .

You're Invited to Visit My New Website
