"Release" 40''x16'' Abstract on Gallery Canvas
This is the last post for the next couple of days while I go with my wife for her surgery. It has been a stressful few days and I escaped to the studio earlier in the week as a "release" to clear the mind, find a happy place, think on the positive, and pray for a good outcome tomorrow. I believe all will be well and that complete release will be felt soon!
Keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

Life. It can be wonderful, hectic, and full of surprises.
I wanted to just stop and post this great pic by a photographer friend of mine from Malibu, CA to remind you to slow down and...you know... smell the flowers.
My wonderful wife has been having some health issues and is facing a surgery later this week. It's really hard to focus on work, art or anything really until we know all is well. It puts things in perspective and makes us realize that we need to enjoy life with gusto. Stop sweating the little stuff, because it just doesn't matter...really.
Cherish those you love today and smell a flower or two....or dozen.

Triptych- Canvas mounted on wood panel with reclaimed materials.
I have been experimenting with mixed media again. I really like putting things together and creating textures along with the paint, so here is my latest...called "Ripreso" which means "reclaimed" in Italian. I used 8x8'' canvas mounted to a reclaimed wood panel and applied papers, corrugated cardboard, bamboo sticks, and sandpapers. I didn't count the layers of red glazes, but these are rich under good lighting. Each canvas is 8''x8''.
