Collected letters
All my paintings are love letters to (or is it from?) the ineffable.

Webster's dictionary defines "ineffable" thusly:

unsayable; inconceivable, incredible, unbelievable, unimaginable, unthinkable; inexplicable, unexplainable ;incommunicable, indefinable, indescribable, inexpressible, nameless, unspeakable, unutterable

I paint and dance because the beauty of this world is so ravishingly unreasonable it is foolish to try to talk about it. But every so often I try to anyway. These are letters I have sent to friends trying to tell the back story of particular paintings, what they mean to me, what is on my mind while I am making them.

This poetic project on-going and free to anyone who would enjoy getting such a letter from time to time. If you want to get these letters from me, send me a note, and I will send new ones directly to you.
