statement of intent

Initially this blog was set up  to be a home page for my artwork. It has turned into a home for my writing also and I think the two are in harmony here. My intention in writing these little “vignettes” is to capture a moment as it appears or flows through my mind. The paintings are also very ephemeral in their execution. The emotion, like a word hanging on one’s tongue is the intention.

Simply to pass a moment from myself to you. Sharing time in this vast expanse of space.

Reinforcing the interconnectedness of all living things.
