Hand-painted Words


chatoyant- like a cat’s eye


conflate- to blend together

This painting is now this painting.


dulcet- sweet, sugary


cynosure- a focal point of admiration

This painting is now this painting.


demure- shy and reserved

This painting is this painting.

Demesne- dominion, territory

This painting is now this painting.


bungalow- a small, cozy cottage

This painting became this painting which became the one above. It’s amazing to have taken something I painted over five years ago and make it something new. Today I spent some time painting words. I have a list of beautiful words that I think the world could use in the form of paintings. I used older canvases with other stuff already on them and I think it adds to the richness of association, memory and language. Subtle themes in these pieces.


Bucolic- in a lovely rural setting

This place was inspired by Edmonds in this painting that is now this painting.


Assemblage- a gathering


Brood- to think alone
