Welcome to my website!

My new art website is still a work in progress, but I did want to get it up and running before I start on my April month on the road.  I'm slowly adding content and with the help of technical assistance trying to make it a click-easy site to navigate and enjoy. Click on any image in each category for larger view, move cursor over photo to bring up titles and comments, and click on or to the side of image to view as slideshow.

The Project section will contain video slideshow essays I am working on in the draft stage. The first Project, Charleston Canvas, is just the first edition of many to come from my adopted home away from home, Charleston, SC. I, like everyone, am drawn to the beautiful, historic town of Charleston - love it's architecture, cultural richness. My Charleston Canvases, however, will contain photos of my street photography...frames of moments that catch my eye...in keeping with my personal narrative and aesthetic and not necessarily what one might find in the travel brochures.

The music for the slideshow I am currently working on,"Steppin' Out", was composed by my friend Frank Duvall, a top-notch jazz pianist, bassist, educator based in Charleston, performed here by Frank and his trio.  You can check out his music at www.frankduvall.com

The Blog will be sporadic, but hope to add some of my poetry, sketches, photos, and my studio activity here as well as upcoming gallery shows and events.

 I will be adding new content here and throughout the website all the time so I hope you will visit often.

My first post here is a photo of my studio at twilight looking up from my cottage...I've a lovely view of the Penobscot Bay from the studio, which is just up the meadow path from my cottage.

Happy Spring!

 My studio at twilight looking up from my cottage on Penobscot Bay...just a few steps up the meadow path takes me to work every morning with a lovely view of the water and my meadow of lupine, daisies and whatever finds it's home there throughout the summer and fall.
