My blog, this blog, about what turns the light on for me; from writing it since 2011 I have really learned about myself, my art, what I cannot live without.  What I need in my life that is the fuel, the soul of my paintings.  One image/thing that makes me stop and stare is a tree.  The lush color, the branches tangled, straight, crooked, and the shapes of the leaves, etc.  Here are some photos I have taken & some paintings that have emerged.


No matter what time of day you can
always see the branches


In winter the branches look
like lines, sketches
