“The contemplation of beauty, whether it be a uniquely tinted sunset, a radiant face, or a work of art, makes us glance back unwittingly at our personal past and juxtapose ourselves and our inner being with the utterly unattainable beauty revealed to us.” 
― Vladimir Nabokov

This is another one of my larger paintings that have recently SOLD, yay!! (I am offering it as a print with various options: HERE) I do get excited with each painting that is sold...there is a 'thank you' praise God followed by a 'happy dance'! It's an income of mine so it means that I can keep doing what I enjoy, creating. Exciting. It's in the process, the challenge, the learning, the discoveries and in knowing it's good that I am inspired and fulfilled as an artist. Many times, I will sit back as a viewer without the thoughts of an artist simply to enjoy. That will bring to mind the purpose of all this and that is for you, the viewer. Art creates a space in time, a way to get away and a place that brings a stillness within. It brings me much joy knowing that beauty is being revealed. I am so very thankful!
