Latest from the Brush

There has been a shift in the world. An unexpected opening in the spacetime vortex that has allowed me to soften the stiff neglected bristles of my paint brushes. Here are several completed pieces and some current works in process!

Painting for Purpose

Autism Painting BiggerIn 2012, against the backdrop of mid-terms, I received a phone call asking if I would be willing to paint something for an Auction for Autism, with proceeds benefiting the Autism Resource Center of Central Massachusetts. I immediately set to work.  I only had two weeks to produce this piece. I quickly imagined the design and then set about researching how to make it work. Autism transcends all boundaries whether natural or manmade. I wanted my piece to speak to that. Those with autism do not always have a voice. I wanted my piece to speak to that too. This is the result
There are approximately 70 different languages, each one had to be researched using multiple resources. These are hand lettered, and each saying the same thing, “I love someone with Autism”.
But it didn’t end with the painting. I posted to social media, I talked about it at work. I let everyone know what I was doing and why. And when the painting was complete I began raising funds for the Autism Resource Center (ARC) by selling raffle tickets for the piece. Along with handing the painting over, I was also able to give the ARC a check for just shy of $1000! (Acrylic on Clay board)

Drawing for the Services

Halloween of 2012, found a room full of service members in training who would not be able to go home to see their families or their children. As a surprise, I drew a 2″ x 2″ halloween character on each of their name placards.
