This is my most recent finished work. I am still so enamored of the sky that sky takes up most of the space I am bounded by; the edge of the canvas. The rain here in New Mexico can be turbulent, filled with hail, cause flash flooding or fairly gentle but because it is rare, there is almost always rejoicing. This piece is about my gratitude.
8 Angry Planets
Acrylic on Canvas | 24"x18" | $850
This is an older painting that I did when I lived in Albuquerque probably in 2011 or 12. It was a companion piece to another one called Twenty-One Stellar Goddesses which is in the collection of the musician 3-Hand Stephen (Stephen Cohen). Together they come from a Buddhist Sutra describing astronomical phenomena .....Eight Angry Planets and Twenty-one Stellar Goddesses.....

Athena Steen will take this new painting and create a cover for my next book, Still Crazy. This new book will capture more vignettes from my life and will include some short stories, essays poetry, paintings and anything else I feel might entertain a reader. I love having and making fun. Feelings are fun; they are a kind of barometer to help us gauge well being. I loved painting this picture. It shows how I feel when I am thinking.
Eos: Goddess of Dawn
Acrylic on Canvas | 20"x16" | $800
Myths have drawn me in since I could read, from Fairy Tales to Greek Mythology; to archetypal tales in religious texts; to deities; to sacred texts and cosmologies. Astrology ...a grouping of myths/stories, a primitive connect the dots tool kit and some near or near-sentient Planets and Stars and you have a weekly job of seeing what your horoscope is for the week. . I like to make my own constellations and connections so nothing about what I create is representational of anybody else's reality. If i like it, I keep it and if I don't, i just paint over it. I love painting the sky.

In very early morning the solar wind, clouds and a few shafts of light coming through the dense overcast sky all roil together in a kind of storm. It is before the sun, the light is from Lightning. This painting is the expression of a memory of a night sky that looked like it would feel like velvet if I could touch it.

It is exciting for me to make up and name my own constellations. Native American myth tells us that spider woman created the world from spit and dust. I have created spider woman's star web.
We Were Three

At one time a large group of these enigmatic figures showed up. It seemed to me they were on a journey. It was a lovely adventure for me, painting their journey as their numbers decreased.
All or Nothing At All
Acrylic on Canvas | 24"x48" | $1200
New Mexico is a land of wide open spaces and long vistas. Some people see nothing and some of us see everything. I used the muted tones of brown because there is little green in the high desert.
The Invisible Playmate
Acrylic on Canvas | 14"x12" | $750
I enjoy challenging myself so I began several pieces with form and shape. I had been staying in the realm of soft edges and found I really enjoy making things that are sharply defined and combine them with the curvilinear.
