My Bocce Ball painting was recently chosen for the annual Bocce Ball Tournament fundraiser for the non-profit, Warm Wishes, an organization that provides warm clothing & backpacks to the homeless in the Bay Area of Northern California.
They selected my art after Googling images of Bocce Ball for their tournament art! It is a great cause. As a result, I offered to donate an embellished framed limited edition giclee on canvas for their silent auction at the September 26th event. A great success! www.warmwishes.org, AA

For some painters, it's about line or form. For me it's all about radiant color and light and space. And, embracing beauty.I think if wehave more beauty, and nature, in our lives, we bring our better selves to greet the day.
Art in the Morning seems to help me, and others, do that. My thanks to those who are a part of it. Jump on board if you like.
My work is in oil.
I make regular updates. So, please check back. Thank you for your interest and for supporting the arts. As always, I'm just an email away if you have any questions. email firstname.lastname@example.org

Thanks for visiting!
Bringing Art to the Kids
The past two years Iíve volunteered to bring art projects to one of our local elementary schools. Joy Rogers, our BATS (Bring Art to Schools) program director, was looking for art projects beyond their regular program format. I have zero time and thought, "Say, what?!" But it is a good cause. There is a reason weíve made art since the beginning. We need it. Art is one of the things that separates us from other animals. I decided to just say yes, knowing that then I would find the time, even if it means working later somewhere else.
I wanted the projects to be about art. But I also wanted to incorporate another care of mine - kids and families making healthier food choices for a long-term higher quality of life. I came up with "Eating the Rainbow," a cut-paper design concept full of vivid color and the illusion of space with discussion of healthy alternatives to sugar-spike, highly processed foods. Fortuitously, Michelle Obama is on the same bandwagon. Fantastic!
