Leonardo da Vinci

Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art.

Michael's Corner

Today is an exciting day for me, I have sold my first painting. Customer and dear friend, Marc Stehno, will become the new caretaker of Michael's Corner. A scene that depicts a spot in our cabin where I sit and work out many things. A spot where I sketch, journal, read, think, nap and even enjoy a glass of wine. I hope you get the sense of depth and warmth of creativity that takes place in that very spot. An artist that is true to themselves does not paint things for the masses. They paint things that touch their soul, which makes it difficult for me to sell a painting. Michael's Corner is no exception. I am humbled that Marc or anyone for that matter, feels compelled enough to hang my stuff in their home. Thanks you Marc, and thank you for supporting my dreams. 14x11 oil on panel.
