As a teacher, that’s all I can do…point to the moon. I can’t take you there, nor can I hand it to you, I can only point. It’s the same with the work that I do. I can only point my viewer. I hope to point to beauty and truth that is outside of the subject of the work, outside of the object that is the work. I hope to point to that special something that was the creation of the work. That’s all I can do. Point.
As a teacher more and more, I’m committed to that very thing. The pointing. I want to do it for everyone that comes to me for guidance. Every single person who joins me in the act of making art, no matter where they are on their journey, no matter their aspirations, or intent or motivations for making art. I want to point. It honestly makes me tear up just thinking about it; it’s so magical and humbling and full of grace to be able to participate in teaching art. I am lucky, lucky, lucky!
And now for the other part of what I do; selling paintings. Honestly, sometimes the selling doesn’t quite fit with the creating and the teaching. So, in response to that, I have decided to make some of my work available online at very affordable prices. I’m pretty excited about two new online venues for selling my work; Etsy and Daily Paintworks. I’ve already had GREAT success on both and having so much FUN!! I want people to have original art. I think it’s important and more “real” than having mass market reproductions. You can find my work out there in those forms too, and I don’t regret that, I’m just having a change of heart!! So, please check out my Etsy shop and Daily Paintworks.
