This is where I post pages from my art journals. Lots of experimenting here...

Shining a Dark Light


"You're right, there are grotesques who shine
a dark light that lures us like how the sirens
tried to lure Odysseus, and yes, maybe we
ourselves are among the grotesques, but
there are also the beautiful who, if we're
lucky, save us from ourselves, and validate
the sun's light, and maybe also the moon's."
-- Matthew Sweeney 
from Dialogue with an Artist

Treasures From My Yard


Some birds are not meant to be caged,
that's all. Their feathers are
too bright, their songs too sweet
and wild.
-- Stephen King, Shawshank Redemption

Drop that Burden


"Drop the idea that you are Atlas 
carrying the world on your shoulders. 
The world would go on 
even without you.
Don't take yourself
so seriously."
--Norman Vincent Peele

This is a portion of a journal page I have been working on. I like this section best. Thinking about turning it into a painting...

Wandering Muse


"She had a little rebel in her, a little chaos and
a little gentleness..."
-- Robert M. Drake
