I heard a beat…
a rythmic sound…
and I paused to listen for awhile.
Then a vision appeared before me:
An ornate instrument began to tell a story…
a story told only in sound.
So I listened some more
and I heard this drum
a beautiful drum accompanied by voices…
voices chanting words I didn’t know…
Cries and moans and visions
steeped in pain…
I saw bondage and struggle…
but there was also GRACE
visions of people rich in HOPE!

And so filled with LOVE
and standing on my own FAITH in God…
I began painting…
Drum Land.

This is a mixed media collage made with glitter pens, hand painted paper, Intense pencils, acrylic, rhinestones, and ink on Canson 140# Cold Pressed watercolor paper. Original is 7″×10″

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.
