    I have always relied on my women friends for support, advise, and love.

    This image is a results of an abstract rust image I shot digitally, and as I lived with it I began to see the group of women I cherish around me in it.

    I used the original image and added paint and pastel over it to help the viewer also see and feel their group of friends.

    I treated it for long wear and mounted it in a gallery style.

    This is a very special image to me because of the past and current experiences I have had with my group of wise women.

    A very original piece with a great mood.

    Very relatable. It almost depicts those women that have passed hovering above the living.

    Love this portrait of Robin Williams. It conveys the warmth and personality of this amazing guy so well.

    This artist sure had fun painting this scene of the Universe! Reading the story with the painting, you can see how the process of painting is such a joy, and the artist actually goes on this journey outside the every day world to travel among galaxies and stars. Isn't that the real point to painting?

    Although the title evokes something completely different for me, the colors, values, drawing and movement in this piece are wonderful!

    Wonderful Native Indian portrait, with an amazing sense of movement and spontaneity, yet beautifully executed with a perfect underlying drawing -- difficult to achieve proportional correctness with respect to the angle of view. Colors washes and accent lines add interest and the upward flow really does convey the feeling of pride and purpose.

    I love this night scene depicting Native Indians gliding in stealth across this slow moving waterway in their bark canoe. The angles of the bank and water reeds create a wonderful sense of depth. The composition is excellent, leading to a sense of a story by the placement of elements; the colors -- vibrate with interest from the range of deep blues to the red tinges of color on the canoe.
