We artists are no strangers to depression. They say "genius is next to madness" and depression seems to be part of the package too. I've been facing my own dragons recently and although I still write and paint every day I seem to have mislaid my enthusiasm.

This painting is SOLD but I'm happy to take a commission for a similar work. Contact me to inquire about prints and Art cards.
The card is acid free and carefully prepared, painted and finished to exacting archival standard. I choose to paint on prepared Card because it is cost effective to mail. Cautious spending is a necessity for many in this economy, but lighter shipments help the environment by using less carbon based fuel. :o)
