A blog about my thoughts and my love of artwork as it develops. It reflects some of the basic steps that I go through to achieve the artwork which is eventually presented to Spicher and Co, an innovative design firm that manufactures artwork for the trade. The why, what, how, and where are a few of the questions that I attempt to answer as I blog away! This is a tiny window into the life of a painter, and my hope is that my love for life shines through in the objects that I work to create.

Retreived wallpaper ARTWORK in Primitive 1830's Style
This is a new (semi-new) style for me. In this piece, if you look closely, you can see the tiny cracks and torn edges that one would expect from something from an earlier time that has a 'retrieved' feel to it. I am having so much fun painting in this style. In many ways, I have come full circle, as this was the style that I painted in when I started back in 1992. Enjoy! This piece will be on show in November at the Hershey Medical Center waiting room. It is a fundraiser of sorts for the medical center and is happening to promote a little happiness to patients in their cancer ward! Let me know if you are interested. There will be five primitive pieces on display.
