It's been ten years since I fell in love with intuitive painting.
This practice of approaching the canvas without a plan has resulted in so many epiphanies and insights. My fascination with this magical process continues, and I'm always thrilled to hear about what these painted stories mean to you.
Mixed Media on Canvas
acrylic paint, ink and marker
Are you sitting just outside the doorway
To the life that you’ve dreamed for yourself
Are there fingers pointing you elsewhere
Than the path that would bring you true well-th?
This is the winning title from the "Name It, To Win It" contest at Pelham Art Festival. Congratulations to U. Haley of Welland ON

When we’re all trying to get our own little way
And we’re all trying to have our very own say
When we’re worried that someone gets more than us
And this group and that group are making a fuss
It’s good to remember what wise ones still claim
We’ve been given a name but we’re one and the same
(acrylic ink and pen on 9 x 12 inch artboard)
Another ‘you’ we will never find
Isn’t that marvellous and magic
That you are one of a kind
