New Work: Leap of Faith

Doesn’t true faith necessitate a risk with a consequence? Faith is having trust and confidence in something or someone, even oneself. The diver who leaps off a 100 foot cliff into the ocean below doesn’t do so foolishly without preparation; simply believing that a supreme being will guide him and protect him during his decent.  Instead he has faith in himself, in his own abilities and the skills he’s learned.

Leap of Faith is on consignment at the Lyman-Eyer gallery. While available for purchase, it will remain with the gallery through the end of my upcoming show, The Breathtaking Blue, this July. In addition to the original, limited edition Gallery and Studio prints as well as open edition Portfolio prints are available for purchase. The Day of Issue Sale is on through Midnight ET tomorrow

Special Nude Variant Print

The first time I "finished" Leap of Faith the diver was nude. But that is not how I had orignially imagined the piece, and that's what I ultimately needed to see. But before I put pastel to thetask of drawning on a swimsuit, I decided to scan the work first. Because of that, I am able to offer a very unique print of Leap of Faith (nude variant).  

Only 25 copies of this special  (13" x 19") print are available.  Visit
