I am approaching this new series as a meditation, as well as a way to deepen my experience into abstraction. Everything in my life is screaming “Simplify….then simplify again.” And thus, this new series is birthed.

To me, the circle (also called an “enso”) represents Peace - that we are all in this human life cycle together, that we really share many more similarities than differences, that Peace – be it inner and/or outer, contains inestimable benefits and blessings.

My Process: First I create gouache, ink, and collage/mixed media backgrounds on various watercolor and other art papers, When these are dry, I stop, take a breath, center myself, and whisper a prayer for Peace, before I proceed to create the final Circle in each of these paintings. Each little painting represents one thoughtful and intentional moment in time and space. I hope you enjoy them, and better yet, can sense the Peace of them. Blessings and Namaste!

Some of these have snippets of collage, others merely ink and gouache. A couple are have monoprints over the gouache background.

This is the final in this PEACE Series. Honestly, i couldn't "count" in roman numerals any higher than this! LOL.

In early 2012, I set a goal of learning as much as i could about gouache and ink and ended up painting well over 100 of these small 5 x 7s in the process. I'm thrilled to make my art affordable to all through these "Little Gems" and it's a great way to start an art collection. Grouping a few pieces together makes a delightful Wow on your wall.
Sealed in a clear archival envelope and shipped in a rigid flat mailer via U.S. First Class Mail to anywhere in the world. At this price you can start a collection today. : ) Each painting includes a Certificate of Authenticity, too.

I started painting in Sept 2007 and haven't stopped since. It's my joy, my love and my dream all rolled up in one. I am so honored to have my art collected around the globe. Thank you!
