Dear friends ... and colleagues kind enough to be visiting my blog despite its paltry recent history of posts: I just want to say THANK YOU for stopping by. It has meant so much to me over the years to have you here listening, supporting, cheering and participating in my artistic process. And I apologize for my silence in 2011. This has been a year of many changes. They are too raw to describe at this moment, but despite their challenges, I have been painting every week, diligently pouring my imagination into wax in order to thresh these feelings into an alchemy of transcendence. There are many new paintings to reveal, but I am waiting for the opportune moment. Stay tuned. Thank you for being here.
