I just discovered the joys of drawing fabric. There are so many lessons regarding light and form in this one little drawing. The texture of the fabric and the folds remind me of how each of us are formed and shaped to create a unique person. It is only in darkness that light is able to come forth.
I always enjoy going back to older paintings and playing around with them. There is less pressure and fear of ruining them, and sometimes they turn out quite nice! I have been really enjoying the play between purple and warm colors lately.
The specks of light that makes its way across the surface of the water just as the sun is setting brings so much delight.

When painting an object, regardless of what it is, I make it a goal to transform something ordinary into something that alludes to something greater or meaningful. In the end, it should not matter what you paint, but how you paint it!
I love the intricacies of water–Each brushstroke and the addition of color work to create movement and life.

The extreme summer heat has made me think about winter and the possibility of moving to a cooler place.
