My Work in Taipei!

My wife and I are very honored to have one of your masterpieces as our precious collection!

We put on your foil art at our new house. By overlooking the Taipei Basin, to us, it symbolizes “outreaching” and “unlimited future”. We like the colors, brilliance, and its flexible and conformations; moreover, we are fascinated all the diverse and profound meanings that can be derived from every looks on the frame!

Thank you very much and look forward to seeing you in Taiwan in the future!

Traverse

I never tire of the definitions of words. When a word pops into my head I find myself wonding if I know it’s true meaning. This is when I pull out my handing phone dictionary app and look into the various definitions of commonly understood words.

traverse: to pass or move over, along or through. to go to and fro over or along. toextend across or over. to go up, down or acoss at an angle. to ski across. to cause to move laterally. to look over, examine or consider carefully; review; survey. to go counter to; obstruct; thwart. to contradict or deny. to deny formally. to join issue upon. to turn and point in any direction.

This leaves limitless possibilites to create in two dimensional works of foil and paint. Enjoy

Story Squares

Joyful treasure boxes of moments in time. A thought, a scene, an image, an impression each filled with brilliant colors. Days in my studio are days to be treasured. I swoon over the vibrancy of the colors strewn on the floor and sometimes floating through the air when the breeze wanders through. Ahhhhh… can’t wait for the spring.

This is the day the Lord made me, I will rejoice and be glad for it!

Every year on my birthday my brothers, sister and parentss will call and sing me the birthday song! My mom and dad will recount my birth, bringing me home from the hospital and my first few days in thier lives. It is such a great way to share the day and reflect back on the many blessings I have in my life. Now I get to add to that all of the warm wishes from facebook friends near and far. What an amazing gift social media can be. Thank you for celebrating me on this day! I feel so overwhelmed as I see the wishes coming through all day long!

Isaiah 59:19

One of my favorite books of the bible is Isaiah. It is full of life, promise and powerful confessions for everyday life. While I mostly work in abstraction, I work with an open human form on occasion. I was reminded of a piece I created with this verse on my heart and mind;

“When the enemy comes in like a flood the Lord will lift up a standard against him.”

Inspired Waiting at Heritage Christian School

My children attend Heritage Christian School in Iowa. It is a wonderful pre-k -8th grade academic center we are proud to call our school. One of the perks for the school and for me, is the enjoyment of rotating art through the office area. I frequently have shows that come down and gallery rotations that leave me with a few extra pieces. I enjoy showcasing them in the office to bless the teachers and inspire any young budding artists.

Oh my…..

Having never been one to blog, this should be interesting. Looking at my pathetic attempt to get started years ago, I traded the blog for facebook. Not sure if that was a good idea. None the less I am here now looking to start again.

Preparing for a busy 2015. Shows and pieces, new directions and of coures the continual fine tuning of art and life. But wait, art is life isn’t it?
