Painting Turtles for a Fun and Challenging Creative Session

Painting turtles is no easy task. Ask anyone who has painted one. Especially for the first time. And especially if you haven’t painted anything in forever! These amazing ladies were such a fun group to paint with, and I admire their willingness to be open to the process. I am proud of every single one …

Creative Session at Guma’ Tasa: Painting a turtle, abstract flowers, galaxies, dragon

October’s Creative Session at Guma’ Tasa coffee shop/bar was really nice. Always relaxing, and we always simply CREATE.

Why I am not offended by the offer of “exposure” in exchange for my work

You know what I’m talking about. Creative artists of all kinds get asked to donate their work or talent for a fundraiser, charity event, or whatever other production, in exchange for “exposure.” Some feel offended when asked to “give our talent for free.” I don’t. Here’s why. I’m specifically referring to the unpaid opportunities that come up …

Murals & Street Art on Guam

I’ve been gradually collecting and taking images of Guam’s local murals and street art, to showcase the more attractive walls and buildings on Guam. There are plenty of “eye sores” here on Guam, abandoned & dilapidated buildings, junk yards, and garbage, but I try to find the beauty instead. The art. And there is plenty …
