“Fractured Nude”….update


Greetings new and old friends!  My current oil painting is coming along…slowly but surely.  Interestingly enough, this is one of THE most difficult paintings I have ever done.  It requires distinct precision and a very steady hand to create each ‘puzzle piece’…of which can be rather challenging due to the amount of Diet Coke I consume on a daily basis, ha ha!

I view this painting as a metamorphosis of sorts….a gradual unfolding.  Just like me, it mirrors some of the process I have been going through for the last two years.  I don’t know, it may end up being a complete mess when all is said and done; however, it is THE PROCESS that I most value.  I sincerely do..  This painting puts me into a serious meditative state and forces me to be quiet and introspective (which can be a bit scary at times…and fun!).  

May beauty find you, in some way, shape, or form today!  May we all be granted the gift of BEING PRESENT…even if only for a brief moment in time.
