Dear God,

Thank You
For continuing to love me
though I fall short… weaken… forget.
I am most grateful for the times
You patiently teach me to love others
With the same candor You show me.

I humbly ask
for strength… courage… stamina
to endure… to survive
this yo-yo ride
called LIFE…
Please restore my hope
my faith…
my belief …
Dear God,
I want to move on.

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.
