Welcome to my new website!

Aloha and welcome to my new website.

This site was skillfully designed by Margaret Rode of Websites for Good. Mahalo Margaret!

Through this state-of-the-art blog, I look forward to periodically sharing my thoughts about paintings, the art of painting, and qigong and meditation. I’m also excited to let you know about upcoming art exhibitions and to announce studio sales!

Creation of the blog is a bit slow right now due to the lockdowns precipitated by the coronavirus, but as our communities heal and businesses and parks re-open, I look forward to posting new material.

Please sign up here if you’d like to receive notification of new posts, and let me know what you think along the way so we can stay in touch!
