Welcome to a blog in which you will find examples of my work in two areas and comments on whatever topics come to mind.

Oil on canvas board 9,5" x 12"
Was the unicorn of legend based on memories of an extinct Eurasian rhinoceros? If so, that's a far cry from it's acceptance as a symbol of purity and grace, an animal which could only be captured by a virgin.
Painting and writing -- I've never known which of the two I want to do more. So why not both?
But I've come to realize that the writing tends to be lengthy, and may be too controversial, for a blog. So it won't be so much in evidence as my occasional absences from painting because of it.
I'm not a painting-a-day person. My Muses are fickle maidens and often skip away for weeks.
I think the subject of a painting should be intrinsically interesting -- and never far removed from the human.
