Destiny is one thing we are born with, but the challenge is to take hold of it. Here is a mother with her telescope, & a daughter , a windcatcher with her pinwheels. Time travel is moving, and the past is on the right, & the future on the left.

There is a lake that winds thru tall cypress trees and small islands. There are 8 different species of swans that live there. It looks almost surreal to me.

The colors are in the notes. What the flute player sees.

Ginkgo leaves appear like little dresses. I created the singer’s dress first from sheet music, & then from ginkgo leaves. I wanted to dress her up like the way Opera singers are. Then I thought of creating a ginkgo hat for her.

Last year I was invited twice, to paint at a womens conference. These were mainly African-American women, & their worship & singing was definitely high energy! I had a wonderful time & it gave me a blessed inspiration in my painting. In fact, I am creating a series of artworks on this subject. This one is 16×20;& is for sale: 120.

This is a 30 inch wide round painting. I painted this during revival at Abundant Life church in Berea, SC. ; when people were receiving prayer, healing, and freedom in Holy Spirit. I stood by the musicians and painted this in 3 evenings. It was so peaceful & fun.

This is a dance painting. The lily is symbolic of purity & new life. The dance is an expression of joy & lively freedom. I used an intense color for the red dress; “Golden quinacridone crimson”. This paint is highly pigmented and holds a full, rich shade. “The artists aim is to depict dreams, ideas, or problems in such a way that others can observe & consider them. ” M.C. Escher

I enjoy painting black women with their beautiful Afros. To me, the afro appears to be a halo when the light shines upon it. Its feeling is like a cloud.

I used sheet music for her dress. I can’t read sheet music, but I love listening to violins when painting.

This artwork is on a 16×20 canvas.

The artist calling is to inspire. The Window of Vision liberates the viewer from the mundane & opens the eyes to see in a fresh revelation.
