One day last year,
I woke up
with the single goal
of staying happy
throughout the entire day.
I wanted to experience bliss
and love
and joy…
deep inside
and bubbling up
and out
through my hands as I painted…
I wanted to produce immediate
and lasting results
of achieving this goal…
So into my stash of painted papers
I went
with the single purpose
of finding colors
to adequately describe happiness.
Then I turned on the pancake griddle
and let the wax heat up
and scent the room
with the warmth of honey…
IMAGINE Happiness
was the fruit on that day
which I still enjoy
to this one.

Encaustic mixed media collage on wood panel made from layers of my hand painted papers, metal, rub-ons, melted crayons, pigmented wax, beeswax, oil, and ink..

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.
