Some days
I feel guilty
that I can be
as happy as I am…
to wake up every day
and do something
I love so much…
painting abstract art
is truly
a delectable

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.

    Angela, just noticed this work, browsing through another group, and had to come back and comment again, about how beautiful it is. It’s already in my favorites and is not moving. ;) The gold, green and red, especially mesmerize me, as if making music.

  • Hi Frannie, thank you so much! This one makes me happy too. :-) My friends were pleading with me to paint BIG canvases again and this was the first one I’d done after a long break of working only on small collages, books, cards, journals, etc… Your comments made me smile today… and oh how I needed to smile. I’ve been painting all day thanks to you, my ultra talented friend! :-)
