Fall Bloom

30×30 acrylic on canvas – katfish design
I was fortunate to attend Art Makers Denver & painted for two full days with the beautiful, talented, & author of Painted Blossoms ~ Carrie Schmitt. As an artist I periodically feel that need to refill the well & that’s exactly what these couple of days did for me. I’m feeling excited to to get back into the studio & see what unfolds.

Time to Bloom

Thanks to The Painted Pixel – Denver for the beautiful high-quality reproductions.
Today I finished my twenty-five year career as a Graphic Designer working in government contracting. Twenty-one of those years were at an Environmental Superfund Site and four years as an Illustrator with the USAF.  
I’m excited for this new journey & finding what creative opportunities lie ahead…
I feel as though it’s my time to bloom.
