Everything finally in place in the D'Studio. Now just need to decorate a bit. Going to be spending a lot more time here.

Have a large pub table as a layout table and if I am doing any computer work. The opposite side of the room resides my infamous drawing table. Got the table when I started design school many moons ago. Spent many late nights doing homework projects on that table and possibly a bit of snoozing too!

Escape From Turtle Island

Here is a small drawing I did of one of my large intuitive paintings. Strangely piles of rocks regularly appear in these images. The original painting (below) is called "Escape From Turtle Island" and was painted with Prang tempera on bristol paper, 26' x 40''. 

Natalia Rosenfeld will back in our area this Fall 2012 to teach another awesome 5 day intuitive painting workshop. If you can't make it to our area and want her to come to your town, just drop her a line!

Big Ass Canvas

Working on some colour studies for my 40'' x 40'' big ass canvas. It will be the largest one I've ever painted. I'll be submitting it to Nancy John's 40 by 40 show in April. Stand by for visual updates.

Studio Day

Spent the day in the studio. I glued down a collage I had laid out over a month ago. It was a great little project on positive self talk (we can all use a little bit of that from time to time). It's not complete, but at least it's off my table so that I can do some other work.

Giving Up Verses Surrender

Believing we can control anything 
outside of ourselves is an illusion.

Mechanical Girl

In a glen beyond the castle wall 
There was a tinker 
And he was a thinker 
The smartest man in all the world 
He made a mechanical girl...

Commissioned Verses Self-Directed Projects

Fabulous article from artist Robert Genn... "commissioned jobs not as joyful as self-directed projects?" Having a great time with Today I Create.

What's your opinion?



I'll never talk again and I'll never love again.
You left me speechless, so speechless.
