    Babirusa with Daisy


    He waited with anticipation for his unrequited love, his beloved. Would she come to see his performance like she promised him last Tuesday? Or would she be a no-show like before? Did he give clear enough directions to the venue? Did he unplug the iron and turn off the stove? His mind leapt and raced.


    With sweat-dampened hooves and a fluttering heart, he stood poised - wondering, fretting, and ruminating. To pass the time he fixated on the fact that pink daisies are her favorite flower, and how enchanting she looked that afternoon when she wore one behind her ear. But in reality, he prepared his heart cautiously this time – determined he would not be crushed again if she does not come.


    He knew the tenors would be called back to the Green Room very soon. But he lingered until the last possible moment, waiting patiently under the theater’s flattering lights to greet his love and give his gift.

from the artist

My ideas for my paintings and drawings always begin in my sketchbook. I gain a sense of relief and closure with each finished piece. I think we all need to find a healthy vehicle to communicate our emotions to others. They just get bottled up without it and we can never move forward. This is why I create.
