experimental sketchbook drawing...

"transition"  painted: 12/10/2011   acrylic and ink
I've been drawing and painting in my sketchbook again lately in the last couple of days in anticipation of a six week painting workshop that I signed up for in January...  
Reoccurring themes in my work are beetles, birds, metamorphosis, life cycles of insects, nature, truth, transition and water creatures...  You'll see larva like objects along with budding plants and other floating water creatures in my work...  I love abstract objects mixed with color, layering and not knowing where my painting will take me...  i love to dance in magic and mystery...

I'm proud to announce that I am currently being featured on artid this month.  This is an encaustic painting that I did about a year or so ago and its one of my favorite paintings.
Please feel free to check it out here.
Have a great day!
