This piece was purchased by Pine Rest Christian Hospital after my show with Mary E. Andersen in the Postma Worship Center's, Leep Gallery. It's always fun to see where these pieces go on their journey after I create them and frame them. Some stay with me a while before they find their true home. I hope this piece is a blessing to the people who see it in the context where it is finally hung.

Saint Theresa's Prayer

This was sent to me as a prayer by St Theresa, but I can't attest for the provenance.
It is, however, a beautiful prayer and worth sharing, I think.

May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given to you.

May you be confident knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones,
and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.

It is there for each and every one of us.

This painting was also recently revisited, reworked and framed. I'll be hanging this at the Lowell Chamber of Commerce building at 113 Riverwalk Plaza (across from the showboat). The show will feature 10-13 of my acrylic paintings and my dancer photos. It runs June 15- September 5. The title is appropriate for this venue because 96 runs right past Lowell. This painting is 30"x40".

Lowell is a great little town! and the Chamber is just a short walk down the street from Fire and Water ART! at 219 West Main where I'm honored to be among 25 talented artists who have their work on display.

I guess I'm in a time of change- I saw this piece in a frame and popped it out to add some lighter elements. It was called MORPHING COMPOSITION, and now it's called CHANGE. I guess it kept morphing! and it still could change!

Once upon a time in 1993 this was one painting. Today it became two paintings and I like the result!

The bottom image is 19x24 (the other parts are closeups). It was inspired by Pentecost and the languages and people who share in the heritage of the Christian faith- all walking in the Spirit! The languages were from iggogle where you can type in a phrase and have it translated into many languages!

quotes from the Painter's Keys

"Rest not! Life is sweeping by; go dare before you die. Something mighty and sublime, leave behind to conquer time." (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

This is the latest inspirational quote from Robert Genn, a Canadian artist who send out a Twice Weekly email letter about art. Each posting has a clickback where you can tread selected responses to the last email. I find it fascinating and so do thousands of other artists. The man is a power house and full to the brim with ideas and her has a staff the helps him with the labor involved. What a gift to all the artists who read his work!
