Fair Warning

Stone Flowers

This is a departure from the "norm" for me.  I am working toward creating some more contemporary-feeling pieces.  I have been "doodling" in my journal for quite some time... years.  My journal is not some gorgeous piece of artwork that could be displayed like other artists keep.  Mine is rather sloppy... full of notes, ideas, photos I have taken that have translated into paintings, and doodles of line, shape and value.  These doodles are pretty straightforward...simple compositions, but they make me happy and, for some reason, I have decided I need to create paintings based on them.  That's it, in a nutshell!  

So, when my blog/website takes on a non-cohesive look, this is why.  You have been given fair-warning....

I like the way you say that - it is being authentic isn't it!?
