    Description

    Acrylic. Graphite. Collage. On gallery-wrapped canvas.

    There is so much truth in this adage: To get something you never had, you have to do something you’ve never done.

    When you change your thoughts and action about who you are and what you can do, the world becomes limitless. A greater sense of meaning or excitement. New connections. New adventures.

    The possibility that if you make one minor change you may set the stage for major fulfillment. Sometimes even the smallest shift in thinking or doing can create the biggest opportunity. 

    The delightful result… New Ways of Being.

    I love this piece! Those stripes would bring anyone into the piece from across a crowded room. Nicely handled.

    beautiful

    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.
