Good morning. It is currently 3:10 a.m. in San Francisco and I am profoundly insomniated (that is not even a word, but adequately describes my current state of affairs). I have been painting for most of the evening and wanted to share my updated photos on the progression of my “Fractured Nude” painting. It still has a long way to go but for those of you who saw the initial photographs, I thought you might like to take a peak at what I have done thus far. I am still unsure of where this painting will ultimately end up; however, I am relatively content with its’ journey as of this morning…relatively.
At the risk of sounding redundant, have a wonderful Monday and upcoming week. The way I see it…we can ALL use a little extra positivity in order to better endure Monday mornings.
Ciao for now….

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.
