Emotions are part of what makes us humans. I am working on a series of paintings to describe feelings of an experience. I decided to do one of loneliness. I began this painting in fairly cool colors to portray that feeling of sorrow and coldness attached to loneliness. But warmth began to emerge and the painting became warmer. Loneliness turned into the being alone, which is different altogether. It is still solitary, but can be peaceful and fullfilling to have time alone. So alone is intricate and complicated, with some cooler spaces but a lot of positive, warm ones too.
Oh! I want to mention that I have an interview from a show on this website! Go up to the Favorite Links. My interview starts at about 13:08 and goes for about 4 minutes. It discusses 4 paintings.
DoorEdges! Look in my Gallery for more of my paintings and see the full line of DoorEdges™ in my Shopping Cart. I have decided not to make more DoorEdges for a while, so if you want one, it is best to get it before they are gone!

Please join me in my art journey through my blog. I am working on obtaining subject matter for a series of painting I am compelled to do. I am seeking interesting, romantic locations for painting beautiful young women with a male figure in the background. The series will be "Protector or Preditor?" to portray the dictomy of relations between women and men in our world.
