I am a lover of blue and gray. Of mist and rain. Of sunshine and sunsets.
I believe there are stories to be told among our everyday lives of color and skies. Full color palettes of pure opportunity. My inspiration comes from the sky, but I find my landscapes settle somewhere in the heart of the simple, ordinary lifestyles. Things to be uncovered if we only look deep enough.
I capture skies because I believe in the perspective of looking up. In life, art and everything in between. Life is hard and the path is rarely clear. But the perspective of joy, the choice of joy, is one I have found makes all the difference in our circumstances. So my skyscapes are the constant reminder to keep our eyes pointed toward heaven.
The combination of the “reflections” that accompany my skyscapes tell a whole story. One wouldn’t survive without the other. Read the stories and reflect on the meaning as you view the painting. Allow it time to resonate in your soul. Step back into a simpler way of life. One not cluttered with the noise of our society. This is were you will find the heart of it all.
Look up. Pour out your heart. Breathe.
Musings from the Studio - the Blog
As you all may guess, I work from my studio. This is the only draw back to being self-employed for someone who likes people. But it gives me a lot of time to think, listen to music and podcasts, and read (audio, of course). Every one of these avenues for noise leads back to more thinking. So, I want to share these thoughts on the everyday with you. Maybe even new places to visit and some of my simple loves; a gathering around the table of sorts. My sincere hope in all of it, though, is that I add refreshment to your life. And mine, for that matter. We could all use a little more, right?
Let's start the conversation and see where it goes.
I love and welcome commissions. I enjoy the chance to create something that has reached in and touched your soul and heart. I love your story. Please reach out if you have an idea. I can recreate your memories in watercolor or oil. My only request is that the image be your own. I do not recreate another artist's work.
