    This drawing is representing life and the sacrifices that are made for life.  There is no life without the sun's rays, the planet we live on and for one life to produce other life (the pregnant woman).  As a woman, I feel that we have the power to continue in life or not.  Having a child is a risk to our own health, even today. Society says women are the weaker of the species, but I see it as we are the reason life can continue.  


    For me, I believe that for a piece of work to be labeled 'art,' it must have meaning and thought behind the piece.  I only create pieces of work that go beyond a 'pretty scenic picture.'  I challenge myself to ask the most difficult questions about life and translate those thoughts into visual paintings/drawings.  My thoughts take me to so many different places that challenge the current beliefs in society.  Art does not have to be beautiful or like a picture.  Art needs to be the result of individuals expressing the most unique thing at the moment that will never happened again: the imagination created by the individual soul.

    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.

    Well, one must read the description with this painting. The artist projects such an enthusiastic spirit and I am immediately caught up! This painting surely conveys the fantastical, a place inspired by dreams of other realms -- yet within this world, shrouded in the lore of history and days gone by.

    I wish there was more socially motivated art such as this one about beach erosion; the concept is well symbolized with falling angles and elements. There is color (life) above but a cold bareness below.

    Very colorful meeting of shapes conveys a happy feeling. Looks like a gathering of boats -- as if they are all talking.
