The painting both at the very top of the page and also shown here, is from my Underground Cave Series, made with mixed media on stretched canvas, 4′ x 8.’ I am still working on this piece. One of my friends said: “Don’t light a fire around this!”

Snow Day Haiku from the New York Times

/https://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/01/25/haiku-saved-for-a-snowy-day/

As cottony white flakes float downward like confetti (at least in Midtown at 10:09 a.m.), we offer a selection of haiku that you, our dear readers, wrote, inspired by one of the last snowy days.

White snow in the park
Celebrate with comfort food
Resolutions fade

— Ruth


Swirl sideways, up, down
Each with a mind of its own
Peace before chaos

— Robert Fox

Mister and misses
cardinal sit lightly but
still the pines drop snow

— James Moening

More inconvenience
Snow and trash and late for work
At least not bed bugs

— Anwar Ragep


snow falling softly
now white and clean, soon becomes
the slush that we dread

— Ellen

Pale snowflakes fall fast,
As do Bloomberg poll numbers.
Grab a shovel, Mike.

— M. A. Darling

Flurries from the sky
Make me want to call in sick
And curl up in bed.

— Kelsey

snowflakes, large as leaves,
brush these buildings’ steel skins like
butterfly kisses

— hairlessOrphan

on the salted rim
of the hudson’s frozen drink
your brain is the lime

— specialeddie

lovely for a day
in New York it soon turns gray
trash pick-up delay

— Anna

Crunching under foot
Once again I shovel snow
To avoid lawsuit

— Frank Jump

Plows scraping blacktop –
Overkill now can’t undo
December’s failures.

— No. 2

Subliminal Transformations


What message do you want to send to yourself every day, or to your friends? Here is a great way to send constant affirmations: choose a word of affirmation surrounded by the visual energy of that word as interpreted by fine artist Jan Kirstein.

These messages, surrounded by corresponding energy of that word will not only evoke feelings from within the viewer, but imbed that concept in the subconscious mind to travel with you no matter where you go on your daily journey.

Surround yourself with an image next to your front door that you see every time you enter or leave your house, or embellish your bathroom or bedroom with pillows, shower curtains, towels, or totes. Surround yourself and others to become the best version of yourself.

The Painting Journey Continues


Our painting Journey Continues with Nancy Hillis’ Studio Journey online abstract painting workshop. Her assignments help free up your expressive inspirations through exploration and self confidence. Growth emerges through experimentation. My own personal journey has opened up possibilities far beyond what I faced even weeks ago. Thanks Nancy!

Painting in a Series

Permission to Create Continues the Journey


Painting and sharing in the new web site format Studio Journey, with our artist guide Nancy Hillis, brings the fulfillment of granting the permission to create, for many knowledgeable painters from all over the world. Nancy Hillis is an inspiring painter, teacher and medical doctor who brings us all together through the website to share her projects, resulting in the creation of art work and feedback from one another.

Thank you Nancy for leading our inspiring journey, which has just begun.

Check out her website to see more about Nancy and her Art Journey at https://nancyhillis.com

As a beginning, our first intention was to work in a series, encouraging experimentation within a framework of self imposed limitations. Some artists chose limited color range, some chose exploring art mark making. An amazing outpouring of creative production rose from this first task, generating a wide range of very well informed results. I hope to share some of these with you after I gain artist permission for the use of their works in my blog.

For now, I share with you the paintings I have created on this Journey so far. I lost my studio about a month ago and this program gave me the impetus to resume painting again. For that, I am indeed very grateful.

Stream of Consciousness: Creating a New Reality


Creating you own reality is an especially appealing idea to me right now, especially when so many realities around us are a carcophany of screenshots I much prefer to deleate.  So here is a sample of my alternate universe!

Here’s a close up of one of my screenshots with my book “Fantasy Animals.”


What Binge readers my stuffed animals are! And this is what happens if you let them read “Fantasy Animals” without adult supervision. Why don’t you check it out here? www.amazon.com/dp/B01LYJAGLK. These guys, up all night, acting out the parts. 

Jump on in. Find an alternate universe in the world of imagination and parable!
And for another alternate universe try shopping on my new website HERE. You never know what the world of imagination can bring you!
