    Description

    Driftwood is one of my favorite subjects to paint. The elements of realism and abstraction merge. To get access to the many pieces of driftwood, I kayak to this local deserted island known as Sandy Point. I notice that there is less and less of the old breakwaters and the old wharf is no longer there. The ice, tides and winter months has taken it's tole. Even the driftwood gets moved around a lot over there but it all makes for new and interesting shapes. Nature always thinks about what I can't come up with. She is such a great inspiration.

    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.
