hope and faith

I have credentials in a lot of things, including writing (from the beginnning) and art (for the last twenty years).

I’ve won awards, enjoy thousands of collectors, and have been blessed to be able to do something as wonderful as create. Art, and writing are very subjective, so, not everyone likes everything. The explorational techniques and images I did in Raleigh influenced my very successful City Series. But Lowcountry collectors like their swamp moss, their dogs and their boats. I like painting it all!

In the last 3 years, since I “retired from show business,” I’ve been amazed at the sheer volume of my own work (you don’t keep count when you’ve got a show to fill) so, while sifting through the archives, this is where I’ll post thoughts, and occasional images of my own art.

I’ve lived a life full of the kinds of adventures that if I told you, you’d think I was making them up. So, I just paint and write a few thoughts here and there.

Thanks for looking — and — if you’re one of my collectors — thanks for feeding my family!

If you want to see what I’m thinking, random blogs below.

Stay safe out there in the BraveNewWorld.
