The Party's Over...Who Won....

My First Ever...Special Edition Print...signed and numbered...matted for framing...

Fly Forth O Gentle Dove

Why Fly Forth you ask...she was the first painting on canvas that I was satisfied with and the first that I placed in my home...she is my inspiration because I am flying forth...each day stronger and higher...until I can soar...

While you look at my art...a part of me and a part of the one who inspires me...somehow becomes a part of you...even if only for an instant...we connect...and the energy that surrounds the creation flows forth...

My angels represent my desire to offer gratitude...as I strive, however meekly, to give them a visual voice...for they rarely speak...for a time they are my angels...as they bring forth my message as well as their own for the person they eventually live with...

Some say my angels have an ethereal quality...a lightness of being...the colors that emanate from them and surround them speak to me...before my brush ever touches the canvas...and they all have a windswept quality...as though they were standing at the edge of my beloved sea...poised to fly...

They are very feminine...with illuminated translucent wings...and they are faceless...I want you, the viewer, to have a part in their creation...to envision their features...if you cannot, that is fine and how they should be for you...but if you can see...that is exactly what I intend...for they hold dear the spirit of the souls who understand...
The above is my artistic statement...it flowed forth from me tonight...on this my 56th year of joyous being...this is why I create...this is why I feel art is my sacred path...and my prayer...

I thank each of you for coming to my party...I am breathless at the well wishes and love which flowed throughout the 5-day event...I am forever grateful that you took some time from your busy lives to dance with me...and I wish all of you could have been winners of my little giveaway...but to me you are all winners...and you have a piece of my heart....

The winners are...in no particular order...
