Below I've created a slideshow for you showing some of the steps in the creation of my painting titled "With An Everlasting Love". You'll see the many stages and layers that go into each of my abstract paintings. With each layer being a response to the layer before, each painting becomes a rich history of color and emotion as I work my way through each piece.

If you can't see the video below, click here to watch the video on the Insider Circle secret journal site.

Much love,
