The Ocean's calling you.

Please join me on the beach this Saturday to help create the largest anti-offshore drilling gathering in history!

This international event is a simple, visual idea. 
At noon (in your time zone) join hands for 15 minutes forming lines in the sand against oil drilling in our coastal waters. 

Click on the logo above for more information & to find a participating beach near you. 

Our oceans need us.
C'mon meet me at the beach. We'll hold hands.

Just a few thoughts. On recycled cardboard.

I was lounging on the beach when the light shifted in the late afternoon sun infusing the log lounging next to me with a golden glow. We shared a quiet moment.
Years ago I worked with a sculptor from Mexico. It was a rainy, cold winter. I was tired of the rain. He told me that he would have a talk with Tlaloc for me. Huh? Who? I asked. He smiled & told me that Tlaloc was a rain god. Sort of. Cool! He spelled it for me. I recently found his sticky note in my desk drawer. This is the result.
Sometimes it seems we're digging (drilling?) for the wrong things in the wrong places. Just a thought, in color.

Shoreline Paintings on Recycled Cardboard

I've been enjoying working on a smaller, medium colored ground. It's refreshing to start in the middle & work towards both light & dark. The color & texture  of the cardboard pick up metallic paints nicely too.  

8" x 8" prints available here.
6" x 6" originals available here.
