New for the 2011 Retired Brush Series

I have finally been getting a batch of old brush heads ready for sale...these are the brushes (mostly 3" x 3") that I have been painting with over the past year...they are stained from the paints and actually look like many of my paintings...none of these have been altered except by the addition of melted refined beeswax which gives them a special depth and dimension. All of the 2010 pieces sold out, and there will only be a limited number of these available for the Christmas Season. Many are currently at City Art getting framed and a few more are still in process! Look closely and you will see the rivets in the metal that held the brush head to the wooden handle!

For the Love of Mom...

"Wisdom Trees on the Shore of Goodbye"
2.5" x 6.25"
Watercolor on Yupo

"November Catharsis"
8" x 10"
Watercolor on Yupo

After nearly a week of being by my Mom's side as she quickly slipped away from us up to eternal life on Thursday, November 17, I painted these two small works last night on November 18. These are my first watercolors on yupo. I think they capture the emotion of the week. Painting them was certainly therapeutic for me. I especially love the small piece on top. Looking forward to doing more with watercolor in the coming weeks. Thanks to everyone who has prayed and offered support to me and my family during this difficult time.
