Kiss From a Rose

A really beautiful piece of music

January 1st, 2011

January 1, 2011 Happy New Year! A new year, a new decade began at 12:00 this morning. That nano second of time passed within the cosmic clock without notice. Strictly a manmade device, time as we know it, has zero meaning in the Grand Scheme of... 

Card of Thanks

December 31st, 2010

Please allow me to take the time to say, “Thank You!” to all of the folks who have stopped by to see my art and to leave a nice comment. Your thoughtfulness is much appreciated. Also, I would like to thank the buyers of my art over this past year... 

Happy New Year

December 26th, 2010

We just got in from a very pleasant day spent with children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. We all ate too much, laughed like we were at an old Keystone Kops movie, watched the younger children open their gifts, listened to Christmas carols ... 

Consequences of Greed

December 23rd, 2010

The late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis stated, “We can either have democracy in this country or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of the few: But, we cannot have both.” The ever-growing homeless population speaks to t... 

Some know about the red light on cars, but not the *112. It was about 1:00 p.m. in the afternoon, and Lauren was driving to visit a friend. An UNMARKED police car pulled up behind her and put his lights on. Lauren's parents have always to... 

New Works Botanicals

I have started a new series of works: botanicals. Thanks for looking! 

Prove Me Wrong

May 2nd, 2010

Picking up the newspaper or turning on the television for the news makes me cringe. The very recent catastrophic blowout of the oilrig on the Gulf of Mexico with the explosion and loss of life again reminds all of us of the impending doom of not fol... 

For Gary Peterson

March 14th, 2010

Hello Gary. Your words of love about your brother, Dale, flow from the page like the sweetest of wine mixed with the ache of regrets. What causes estrangement in families? Only God knows. My uncles had not seen each other since 1967 when their ... 

Peach brandy

March 1st, 2010

A true story: One summer back in the 1950s my mother and her two sisters decided to make some peach brandy. The ladies did everything correctly and bottled some very nice quarts of brandy. All of the peach pits, skins and excess from the pressin... 

A re-run

February 25th, 2010

August 20, 2009 If a society is kept ignorant, broke, and hopeless it is very easy to control them with more scare tactics. Any port in the storm seems all right. That is our situation, right this very minute, in the United States of America. T... 

Stellari in Blue

December 14th, 2009

These beautiful creatures fly into our yard all summer. I miss them. 

A Warning

December 6th, 2009

A warning! My bank account has been ransacked again. This is twice within the past 12 months thieves used my debit card information to clean me out. This is extremely distressing—it requires a full-blown investigation by the bank to run down t... 

Green Foam

This one reflects the weather here in the Pacific Northwest. 

Tie a Yellow Ribbon

I will remember. 

Home Port Lighthouse

November 28th, 2009

I painted this lighthouse as an homage to Carl W. Leick who designed so many of the lighthouses on the Pacific Coast as well as Puget Sound.  

First Christmas Card of 2009

Since FAA has started offering Greeting Cards it is more than time to get the selections out there for the Holidays. 

Cape Hinchinbrook Alaska

November 6th, 2009

Cape Hinchinbrook Lighthouse in Alaska has had a stormy history. The original lighthouse was designed by Carl W. Leick but fell victim to two separate earthquakes. The second lighthouse was put on line in 1934. The remains of the first wer...
