The influences of the bold colors and island dwellings in a Gauguin and  fascination with the oddities in a Picasso have always delighted me. The feel and texture of paint and the joy in painting have always called.

Often, I would incorporate abstract art pieces within my graphic design projects for my clients. The above piece is a  24" x 15" scratchboard for the organization, "Women in Communicatons", done back in the early 90s titled: "Say What?"

While fine art has been my call family has always come first, and that is where time has flown. However, with retirement on the horizon...yeah right...and art in my blood, the dusty files of ideas stored away for years should produce an interesting series of work...

Art... from the beginning to the final frontier.
