New Work


Grounded, 48 x 46 inches

I've finished three of the large paintings. One still alludes me.
Oh and I might still work on the green one. One area is still bothering
ing me, ugh. I should have listened to Drew and left it alone when he told me to. I wish there was a back button in painting.


In the Beginning, 48 x 46 inches


Somewhere Only We Know, 36 x 60 inches

Creativity Workshop Update

The word Creativity might take on different meanings for different people. Here are some meanings that we came up with on Saturday and I few others I pulled from a previous workshop, passion, fun, joy, intangible, unknown, our true nature, movement, new, expression of self, ability to stand alone, open, growth, flow, journey, ever present, recognizing that we are collaborators, part of creation, transcendence, release, surprise, discovery, inspiration, freedom, risk taking, and insight.

In the workshop we wrote, we laughed, we moved to music, we painted, we shared, we collaged and exchanged ideas. Then we were exhausted!

These are the only photos I remembered to take. I didn't get any of the final collages which is fine since I actually think it's more about process than finished product. It's so important to enjoy the process and understand that you're not going to love everything that you make. You are always learning something new that helps you the next time around. The creative process is a lot like life, you can't be worried about making mistakes. If you were you'd never leave the house and what fun would that be?





Thanks Keri, Kevin, Suzanne, Toby, Nicole and Liz for allowing me to bring you on a creative journey to the land of possibility.

If you are interested in participating in this workshop the next time I teach it please drop me an email and I'll add you to my email notification list.

Creativity Workshop

Spheres and Gears.jpg

I'm teaching my Creativity Workshop, Sat. October 15th, 2011, 10-4 pm at the Buzz Ware Village Center in Arden, DE.

I'm thrilled to be preparing to teach this again. It's a really fun day. Please jump in if you feel you're being called to try something new or just approach life in a fresh way. There is a post with testimonials here and another post here. I teach this because sometimes people tell me that artists are born with special talents, you've heard this right? It's a myth. Creative people are born with a tenacious drive to express the feelings and passions that are universally understood by all mankind. Actually everyone is born with this drive, some successful bury it while others answer it's calling.
