Having fun with my mandala art and beach creatures. Enjoy!
Down by the sea…My art is inspired by the brightly colored shells and seaweed that wash up on the shores of Caspersen Beach in Venice, Florida. The smell of brine and fish is a sweet perfume for my soul. I am renewed with the feel of sand between my toes and the sound of waves calling to my heart…
Where do you go when you are not working? Do you retreat to a spare bedroom to mediate? Do you hang out with friends over a few drinks? Do you get away for the weekend to the mountains? Do you head for the ocean? Or are you like I used to be for the past 12 years, do you mostly work and not get away enough to make a noticeable difference?
I made a decision about 6 months ago that my health and spiritual being were more important than my work. I am not my art. My art is just a small part of who I am. So I now take long weekends and I commune with nature. I swim in the sea, hike through the woods, bike ride along the waterways, hunt for sharks teeth along the shoreline, watch turtles and iguanas warm themselves at the park, see the sun set over the ocean and so much more! I do not blog or promote my art during this time. I do not talk to clients on the phone. I don’t even have a computer at my beach house. And no T.V. either. Imagine that? For many years I couldn’t, and now I cannot imagine going back to that workaholic person I used to be….
Here is where I go…
Which means I will not be around much for the next 6 weeks. After that the water will be too cold to swim in for us Floridians. The salt and the waves call to me…

Whether you are a Day of the Dead aficionado, a Harley Davidson Motorcycle rider, Grateful Dead fan or just someone who finds all of life interesting, you can see the fascination with skulls. Whenever I see them, I like to picture what the person who used to inhabit that cranium must have looked like. So many possibilities. Death doesn’t have to be taboo. It is natural and like all of life should be celebrated. I love playing with skulls and giving them their own personality. I have my goth side. Living is expensive, but the price of death is cheap here:
