And now for something new for Halloween.  My latest creation.  Just for fun....It's a painting of an abandoned castle from my memories of long since past.  There's something dark and romantic about a painting without color.  What do you think?

My latest works are venturing into the void of space and time.  I've started painting the glorious and magnificent gaseous clouds known as Nebulae.  They basically are gigantic star factories where various gases form to create over millions of years using gravity to create stars.  To learn more, watch some great shows like "How the Universe Works" or Steven Hawking's Universe series.  Here are three of my latest oil paintings of stellar masterpieces.

Today I spoke with a friend of mine that lives in Park Circle in Charleston, SC.  He is a glass fusion specialist that creates exciting, fun and even practical pieces for sale.  He has everything from necklaces, pot holders to even socket protection plugs that are decorative.  Check his work out at....

I had a good night last night at my gallery - I sold a very large painting and a couple of people were thinking seriously of coming back today and purchase some others.  It's always a good and validating feeling when someone is willing to shell out hard earned money the price of a small car for a painting.  I am always humbled by my gift and truly thankful to God for what I have, but admittingly, I still have a lot to learn.  I really, really want to attend Illuxcon in Pennsylvania in November to hang out with some of the great artists I admire so well.  We'll have to see.  Meanwhile, I'm spending a beautiful day on Saturday in October working hard on my website which is a long and tedious process!

Talented and Driven Kids!

Over the past few months a good friend of mine's daughters, both little geniuses in my opinion, have been working hard on their own fashion blog - called It's a fairly impressive blog if you're looking for fashion types especially if you happen to be a fan of vintage clothing.  Astrid seems to be attracted to anything of the past including various patterns and designs.  It's worth checking out and you get some good ideas on what to wear.  The blog is well-written as she is an accomplished writer as well.  The photography is by her younger sister Nadja who also happens to be very gifted.  Check it out.  Here are a few highlight photos from her fashion blog.
