I’ve done a lot of painting lately, entered some gallery shows, set up a solo show in July/August, made sketches of ideas and written a lot about this whole idea of Searching for Beauty in this Broken World. I’ve been settling out the different elements of this theme: How & where do we Search? What is Beauty anyway? Why is it so easy to see what is Broken? And when can we see that sometimes a break is what we really need?
A journey through the creative process, working and traveling in the Northern Alleghenies of Pennsylvania.
I practice artworking in several different media: encaustic, collage, egg tempera, block printing, and digital
