I have been very quiet lately-I have been working hard on the website content, learning more options and processes in Wordpress as well as learning more about the processes of flash and social media. A very busy time and an intense creative block as well.
First off I have sold the intro picture on my website-"the shrike." I sold it to a close friend and am getting more exposure in the most unexpected avenues. Besides all of the creative avenues all directly related to nature I have another passion-nature itself. I have been perfecting a wildlife garden. I have bought several plants online and I am excited to say that wildlife is finding my garden.
The other day I went to North Haven Gardens. I was looking for Aristolochia plants-(Dutchman' Pipe) to feed the pipe vine swallowtails that were devouring the ones I have. I met with someone that talked with me about their plants and butterfly gardening and in passing I mentioned I am an artist and photographer. She asked me if I knew they had a gallery.

Another exciting project I am working on is small canvases with birds and flowers that I plan on showing at the gallery. I am also in the process of my next series which is getting back to the more detailed simpler aspects of water and landscape painting. I will be photographing the garden and introducing new paintings in the near future so please stay tuned.
