“Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted.”
Martin Luther King, Jr., in “Strength to Love,” 1963.

I smile every time I read this quote. I’m hardly capable of saving humanity but I sure do feel “creatively maladjusted,” especially when I head to my studio, a place where an ADD specialist would find a enough material for a PhD. thesis. I’ve finally decided to ignore other people’s urgings that I stick to one voice/one medium -- and the work I’ve done over the past several months reflects this joyful rebellion. The result? Glad you asked. I’ve continued with the hands portraits...but nothing’s finished yet. The botanical watercolors have morphed into ink and oil monoprints. I’ve fallen in love with something called “spirit houses.“ I hope to have a couple of ‘em ready for November’s Art Attack (see below). What is finished is a series of framed 5” x 5” acrylics that are really cool, if I do say so myself. If you're thinking about holiday gifts, you might want to consider a gift of art. I'm offering gift certificates in any amount to be redeemed by the recipient whenever he/she gets around to it. You'll find 3" x 4" prints on miniature easels ($12), oils in the same size on easels ($25), framed and unframed watercolors ($45 - $75), framed acrylics ($125), and unframed oils ($400 - $600).
