New birth year. New school year. New bosses. New roles. New adventures.

Some changes are good while others can present challenges. This summer I turned a year older, our daughter began a new school, shifts at work have changed my boss and some of my job functions while...

My daughter has grown to love the arts. Having been an athlete, I tried to expose her to sports and she gave a few a try. In the end, she just gravitates toward art, music, and theater. I couldn’t be more proud.

I found myself worried at first, unsure how I might teach...

The start of a new day, sunrise. Each is different than the one before it and some are hidden behind clouds and rain. We often picture the best ones happening over an ocean, mountains, or other terrain missing from most back yards. What’s t...

Experiences inspire. They stay with us, long after the credit card bill that made it possible is paid, and often times the best experiences in life are free. I’ve loved to witness, first hand, the irrelevance of an experience’s size, so-to-speak. It doesn’t matter.

Art exists in every part of our lives, often going unnoticed. The shape of your vehicle, the cut of your blouse, the color of your hair. Even the pen you use to write with was graphically designed by someone.

Vibrant versus pale. Bright versus dull. Beautiful versus ugly. We often think of these descriptors as absolute, but I like to think of them as fluid. Spectrums. And what we are describing with them are just as fluid. 

Color changes with light. What looks like true red...

If we're lucky, we grow up in a good family. If we're really lucky, we get to create another later on. Some families seem perfect. Some not so much. In the end, it's your family, and like everything in life, it is what you make of it.

What moves you? What moves me? I have often wondered how I could possibly articulate it. It’s so intangible. Varied. Vague.

And it’s not.

Some things that inspire me (and the art you see here) are very basic. Simple. Even child-like; places I’ve been, things I’ve seen, s...

Having been an amateur artist for many years, it never occurred to me to call myself an artist. And I don't know why. I've been a life-long runner and have always identified as one. But I'm not good. I guess I was in my youth but I quickly and voluntarily became slow a...
