My most recent Story Painting "Witch Way".  

All of us are slowly trying to return to "normal" after the storms here in Florida. I am grateful for beginning to feel normal again as so many of us are still recovering from the devastation left behind.  The stress of an interrupted life can be hard to bounce back from.

That's me at my first-ever art show...Boomtown Days Dunnellon, FL. circa ~1990.

A while back, I competed in an art show along side an artist whose work was an absolute inspiration for me to try harder...  

Her work was in both color pencil and graphite, mediums that I had just began to renew my interest in at the time.  Her work was photo realistic, and at first glance, I thought they were photos.  I had entered some pencil drawings into the same sh...
