Nature inspired original abstract art!

I've been wanting to paint abstracts seriously for a very long time...somewhere in the 3-5 years range.
Well, I finally decided IT WAS TIME!

Check out my original art shop at by clicking the link below.

I welcome your feedback!

The one shown here is titled, "Arbor" and it is an acrylic on wood original painting that measures 5.50" x 4.50" x 1.00".

...and the beat goes on!

Happy 2012 everyone!! Hard to believe yet another year has passed by chocked full of memories, experiences, sunrises and sunsets.
But as a new year comes...all of us have a tendency to reflect upon the previous year and evaluate the good, bad and ugly of it...and attempt to create a plan to avoid the bad and ugly and repeat more of the good and even improve upon it.
I find that I take the most pride in the moments that required extreme focus, good judgment and strong leadership...mixed with being in the moment...and trusting myself to make the right decisions. The memories I don't want to repeat I tend to fear...and in the book I've been reading "Flinch"'s the moments that push us, require us to step outside our comfort zone that broadens and expands who we are. essence THOSE are the moments...the big fat mistakes....that make us a better people. It's our scars that tell the best stories anyway isn't it?
So embrace all of what 2012 has to offer!! Run, skip and jump your way to your best self. our authenticity....Cheers!
