The day started with fog and ended with sun, grilled veggies, and singing. In between I painted to very happy abstract expressionistic paintings. Both are done in pastel and are 22″x30.”

I tried a new technique of painting pastels into saturated, wet paper, and I’m in love with the process. It is so spontaneous and immediate, and perfect for abstract expressionism.

(These look particularly cheerful on phone cases!)

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
