pjs-logo-9-2My word for this year is SHARE. After all, this is the reason I started this website. That is aside from all the prodding and pleading from family, friends and students. It is to force myself to share what I create. To push past my fears and self doubts – “it’s not good enough”, “who am I kidding, who would want to look at my work?”, “I’m not really an artist”, and on and on and on…. This is very difficult for me, but I know we always need to push past our fears in order to grow.  This is a work in progress, please bear with me.

More important, art is what I love to do.  I’m learning to enjoy the process, even if I don’t always love the results.   It seems that I learn something new every time I put pen or paint to paper or canvas; “Oh yes, have to try that again or Oh noooo – that didn’t work!”  It doesn’t matter, it’s a learning curve and so much fun. I still feel I have not developed a “style”, but it’s great trying tons of different techniques and experimenting with what I have learned from others.  On that note, I hope you enjoy what I share with you.
