Visual Art is a beautiful language using the elements of art. It is universally spoken and invites the view into the artists world. A painter and art instructor for many years, I also enjoy writing, nature, family and friends. Take a peek into my studio; see what is on the easel, read my thoughts and tips, explore how faith, art, and life converge. The world of art is fun, challenging, exhausting and renewing all at the same time!
As I review the year - it has been fun to pick up an old media that I haven't used in awhile and also explore older subject matter. Both of these are in that area of exploration. I love the tranquility of landscapes, though that is not to say they cannot express drama! And, it is a way to express a sense of melancholy for some of the vanishing open lands and farms in this part of the mid-west.
