Here we are, celebrating the past decade of my contemporary landscape paintings! I find it hard to believe that ten years have gone by since I started painting full-time and operating my art business. So many of you have been with me for the duration of this painting adventure. Thank you for this! I truly could not have accomplished what I have without the support of serious fans and art collectors. You are the best! And, before we go to the paintings of the past decade, I want to acknowledge all the wonderful gifts and adventures life has offered over the past decade. I am most grateful for these experiences! Though painting is important, it does not stand alone on my list of ordinary pleasures. These include such things as our email exchanges about life and art, our chats in person, my time with family and friends and my long walks, with camera in hand, on our island trails or trails in another location - simply for the pleasure of being there! These activities and exchanges are a significant part of why I do what I do. Contemporary landscape paintings are my expression or the results from exploring the mystery in an ordinary day. Yes, the work is done on my own. However, the experiences of being a landscape painter is part of the fabric of my whole life that I share with you in each issue. With this acknowledged, are we ready to review a decade of landscape paintings? Yes? Great!
