All Good Things Begin In My Heart.

“This work is my first painting. It was created sitting at a kitchen table in Rocky Hill, Connecticut around 1978. I was given my most encouragement by Commanche artist Doc Tate Nevequaya, from Oklahoma. I had visited him several times at his home. He was gracious and gave me a lot of encouragement and we had some great conversations about just what it takes to sit down and just start a painting. The key words he gave me was to “pick a medium and just stick to it…”, so that is what I did, chosing gouache watercolors, usually Windsor. I really love the brilliant colors and their thickness. So I purchased a pallette and some paper and got started. At the time I had been doing small stone carvings for four or five years. Stone carvings is dusty and creates a ot debris and clutter. At the time I was living in a very upscale home and it was just not possible to do this work at that house. My artistic urges would not relent, however, so at that time, to keep going, I started doing the paintings.”
