Latest Artwork: Reflections of Peace acrylic painting

After a few commission projects, I was itching to paint what was in my mind and heart. This piece, “Reflections of Peace,” created itself in the moment, I didn’t have a complete image in my mind when I started, but it came together as I played with the paint. Here are photos of the process …

New Year’s Adventure Back to Bali!

So I went to Bali in October 2016, and I told you all that I fell in love and would be back sooner rather than later. Well, I decided to start 2017 with an adventure back to Bali! It was amazing, even though I did get the infamous “Bali Belly” while I was there. Really …

Bali was amazing, a travel dream come true!

Since I’ve been back from an epic vacation with friends to Bali, the first question I get is, “how was your trip?” I have started answering “lame” or something similar, because I got tired of repeating “amazing.” Who goes to Bali and has a lame experience? Not me! I guess it helps that I was …

Today is my son’s 11th birthday, and he stayed home with me because he isn’t feeling well.

The good, the bad, the ugly, and the utterly amazing. …
