My Landscape

I hear the humming of warm air rushing through vents somewhere beneath these floors.  Nothing unusual, except for the awareness.  This backdrop makes me sleepy in the same way standing in the line during busy shopping at the grocery does, or the way my mother’s sewing machine sings a lullaby with its steady climb up […]

You Are Dear

“You are dear.” What a lovely thing to say to someone. There are few people in our lives who hold that role without question. They are open and soft and they love us. They also tell us the truth. They tell us without any judgement when they think we could try harder to mend a […]

My Name is Patience

My name is Patience. I have, for most of my life, consciously and unconsciously been looking for someone whose real name is True. When I was very young, I spoke with him continuously.

Sowing Good Seed

It was early Sunday morning in Anacostia, D.C. We had driven paintings to my gallery in Georgetown. Susan and I wanted to drive through the area to get some referral photos. I like to incorporate local images from the area surrounding the gallery. Anacostia was considered unsafe for 2 women to drive through alone, but […]

Joy…or Marketing?

Making a living in the art world has been quite a journey. In my early years of painting, there was only one motivation in me to do art: Joy. Already an adult before touching a canvas with paint and brush, the surprise of my new found skill was more magical than it would have been […]
