Got it right away. Very fun image. nThanks
My paintings are a group effort. I work with Nature and the elements and the elementals who often mention good color choices. As I show up, the painting develops into a story...one the unfolds over time. Sometimes I don't see or know the story until years living with a painting. I think that another person, without being the painter of it can develop stories with paintings that I paint also.
Why Might my Paintings Matter to You?
Nature in the form of animals, land, atoms, even virtues like grace are who I call to me with my hand and my heart and mind to move like the wind between the spaces of atoms and smaller bits in the painting. These are the things that come together to create manifest conglomerates, substance, food, a house, a new pair of shoes. We send out and in the thought and the energy of atoms begin to aggregate around the thought...and soon enough sometimes longer....the thing appears.
Now how it appears is what is fun. Often it comes in a way not planned nor expected. Sometimes it just plain drops in front of you. Like my new set of snow tires. Ok, the wish was sent out over 2 years ago for the tires....there really is no way yet I have been able to do the Math. The simple reply for all of this is, Thank You.
Why then would a painting have anything to do with manifest reality? Because the way it was created was through the exact same intention of working fairly large at times, calling in the goodness of creation, participating in the dance, and letting a story unfold.
For a person to appreciate any one of my paintings would mean they had an inclination to do the same in their own life. To connect and cull from Nature, to live in appreciation and gratitude of everything, to manifest dreams and desires. to Love, to be free.
So you and me, are very much alike - that is, in that you can see and appreciate my marks on paper and panel.
I have been painting since the 1970's. I co owned a shop in Harvard Sq. in Cambridge and used to paint on saw horses onto paper, silk and clothing. Now I work from Singingland Studios, my home in New Hampshire and also sell out of my studio shop in Newburyport as well as Chameleon Gallery on the very same street.

PAY OVER TIME OPTION
As a painter, my life is very fluid. Things come and go, take form, leave current forms, what I am about to say is....If you see something you like and would like to have it. let me know. we can work out a payment schedule of as little as a dollar a week...that will hold your item in place for you (it won't be going off to a gallery, or stored in the loft....not to be heard from again until i am rummaging around up there).
Payments are nonrefundable. I need to receive something at least once per month. When paid in full, i will ship it to you with free shipping!
If you are one of my buyers on a payment plan, please be reminded i must receive some sort of agreed upon payment once per month or i will think you changed your mind, forgot about it or just wanted to move on quietly leaving me with the $ you already put down! (i will do one quiet email and etsy mail as reminder per month only!)
