About me

This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realise it is play. The only thing that is ultimately real about your journey is the step that you are taking at this moment. That’s all there ever is. I’m here to tell you that the path to peace is right there, when you want to get away. When you are present, you can allow the mind to be as it is without getting entangled in it. If you miss the present moment, you miss your appointment with life. That is very serious!

Welcome to my art blog!

I've taken the plunge and decided to post my art on line. I've been sketching an painting since early childhood and it is something that has been part of my life forever it seems. So this will be a record of my journey through the art world.

It's only fitting that I start with a sketch I did in 1955 at the age of 11, one of the few that I've managed to keep over the years. During my many moves and travels as a young adult, I managed to lose all my childhood journals, all my silver and gold diplomas I received at art shows and all the rest of my art work. So this one as a bit special to me, and you will excuse me for boring you with such a bland first entry!
