I will catch my breath and you will catch yours, too

Except for paying my monthly bills, money means nothing to me. If I did not have kids, I would live in my car and catch my breath for a while. I am not making light of this. I know living in a car is a big deal and some people don’t have a choice but … Continue reading

This painter wants to live in more than one world ..

I am waiting for pictures to come through my email so I can update my Facebook page. Patience, I have it. Sometimes more than others .. not more than other people I am saying but at some times more than others. I am somewhat of an impatient person. And sometimes a patient person. Maybe rather … Continue reading

Seek First the Questions

So, I never thought I would see a half-dressed man with his arms crossed, standing with his arms folded, in the lane of the interstate in which I was driving at midnight. I was driving home from White Linen Night in the Heights of Houston. It had been a long and intense day. My daughter … Continue reading

White Linen Night in the Heights of Houston

Someone told me, yesterday, I am sunny. That is a pleasant thing to say and I think it is important for each of us to be a light to the world, to the best we can be. I encourage it. Each of us has something like that in us but it is up to us … Continue reading

What is Undone becomes Beautiful Once Again

Painting is a series of risks, much like life. I see in my evolution of painting, that where once I was concerned about overpainting I am not currently thinking of it. I continue to paint as long as the canvas is speaking to me. There are paintings I held back on, for fear something undesirable … Continue reading

Right where I am Intended to be. And so are You.

I called back two weeks later because I had changed my mind, wanted to resubscribe and I was told the charge would be nearly double. They said I had been grandfathered in, before. I … Continue reading

Definition of Definition and Other Definitions

It looks like it has been December since I have written my blog. It has been nearly two months, to the date. I have missed writing my blog but I’ve kept up with my newspaper writing and I wish I could share that with you but it is now behind a paywall. I liked it … Continue reading

Thanks for Being Along for the Experience

I’m tired and it’s the end of the year. I’m feeling contemplative and reflective. I’m feeling quiet, hardly chatty at all. But I have been meaning to write and tell you that my art is now represented by the lovely gallery, Affaire d’art, on Galveston Island. The owners, Kent and Sharis DeJaynes, have welcomed me … Continue reading

Untitled

I can’t begin to comprehend the shootings, the violence that happened in Connecticut. I am slowly learning more about the morning and what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School. I’m seeing Facebook posts from my friends, photos forwarded of children that were killed and one of a teacher, Victoria, who saved the lives of everyone in her … Continue reading

Build Your Life

I would always rather you tell me what you want, rather than what you don’t want. I believe in thinking forward with positive, for what we want and what we see are powerful indicators of where we are going. There is the common story of a man who did not like the idea of growing up … Continue reading
