Chance

There is an element of chance in life, yet it doesn’t overpower the importance of perseverance and dedication. Things change but it is hardly by chance. Chance is that moment of uncertainty after a choice is made. The duration of change (the emotional) is proportional to the amount of time between choice and action. Before I get to far off in the philosophical and leave behind the playful – the fear of chance is the moment between when my daughter choses to change the paper doll’s clothes and act of putting on new clothes: nakedness. Naked seems to be a good word to describe the point in which we feel all our emotions at once – joy/excitement and fear/unsure concerning the future. I have been trying to express this in art … this is what I have so far.IMG_2683 IMG_2680

The Belfry

These are 2 prints (12 prints on each set) I did for the Youth at FUMC New Iberia. One is of the Belfry (bell tower) of the church and the other is of the stain glass window in the belfry printed on old hymnal pages. All sales of the prints go to the summer missions projects. They are $10 a piece. If you would like one leave me a comment or email me. Thank you!

This might have saddened me 15 years ago, but now I revel in the mysteries and adventures this area brings. Its just backwoods enough to have a great oral folklore, but modern enough to call it folklore.

This artist, who calls himself BMike, found peace within a similar space, the Florida Projects in the Bywater district of New Orleans, and filled in with art. Read more…

Grace Wheel

Grace is often described in black and white terms. In the religious tradition I was raised, there was grace and then there was dismissal. With age I have learned that grace is experienced in a spectrum. Expressions of grace are colored by the giver – his/her character, life experience, self-identity, etc.
