On Regret


"The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work, who felt their own creative power restive and uprising, and gave it neither power nor time". - Mary Oliver


Untitled o/c 2014

I went through a period of time where most, or all of my paintings had pink and green. I also loved the power of combining pink and orange, or placing pink and orange next to each other. I always added areas of pure titanium white and small bits of bold red for contrast. That combination is still magic to me.

I always tell my students to paint from their heart first, then their head. The hand will follow.
