Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

You may have noticed I've done several dark shadowy pieces lately. I am enjoying the way the faintly perceptible images create an interesting mood. They seem somewhat dreamlike, or perhaps like waking from a dream state.

Have you ever arisen from sleep with insight about something that's been on your mind?

Fabulous series.

Great title on this and I like the black and white. There is just enough value change to create the story- excellent!

Looking back on the 30 in 30 Challenge and enjoyed them all. I have picked this one as my favorite. Beautifully rendered with so much of an emotional quality in it.
Congratulations on such a wide array of beautiful artwork.
