My wife found an image in a magazine of a girl dancing wearing a really elegant dress and suggested that it would be a good idea for a painting. I did my own spin on the dress adding red, yellow, yellow-green and blue. While painting the back ground I went a little to heavy with the water and got drips. After they dried they looked really neat so I left them in and traced them to define them more. I’m learning more and more to let the painting become something naturally instead of forcing it to fit an exact idea. Art is all about discovery.
So this painting is all about rain, life, flowers and dancing. I personally love the rain… and am hoping nor-cal gets some more soon!
My work is on display at Colfax Greek Bistro the whole month of January.
Check out the art and have some good good!

The Phoenix was of course in Greek Mythology and used by the Early Church for a symbol of new life and resurrection…. plus it’s the street my wife Jami lived on when I met her… and a really good band from France. 🙂
The main concept was that out of a dry desert can come life and hope.
Thank you to all who bought paintings and/or came to my show. I was able to raise $120 for Courage Worldwide. Here is the message I received.
“THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. Every amount counts and we appreciate all you have done immensely. I am always so encouraged by the way people use their skills in this fight.
And of course you don’t need to buy a painting to donate you can donate here.
I’ll be having a show at Gallery W in Sacramento, CA – May 12th-June 16th.

Never any pressure to buy anything but 50% of what I sell will go to Courage Worldwide who builds houses for sex trafficking victims.
This was an idea that came to me when I was looking at coins. I am a little bit of a coin collector. I have coins from all over the world. And I started to think about all the times that “love” and “money” are used together. “Can’t Buy Me Love” is a song by Paul McCartney… “ For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.” 1 Timothy 6:10… etc. In a way they are opposites but in another way money can obviously be used to show love in giving the those in need. Anyway, I look forward to hearing other people’s thoughts on it.
For fun I made a my own little Social Media site. I had imagined it being a kind of portfolio piece but anyone is welcome to use it. I wanted to design something simple and easy to use. In addition to adding a photo, link or text you can also add a sketch with my HTML 5 drawing tool. Have fun!
