Triptych is Coming!

A book is on the horizon! Triptych, my spiritual memoir, will be released April 2, 2016.

We’ll officially begin the book launch with the new year, so for all the information, goodies and events, follow now at:



As we approach the release, you’ll have an opportunity to join the Triptych journey in several ways. We’ll share excerpts from the book, insights into the unique cover-design process, invitations to events, updates on collaborations we’re brewing with other artists, and more.

An introduction as we begin:

The Wizard

KelseyKelsey Widman, a former student of mine is now my publication assistant extraordinaire. Kelsey will be helping me manage the many details of launching a book– and making me look more tech-savvy than I am. I hope many of you will be able to meet her; her smarts, hard work, and good company are already gifts in this season.


As always, thanks for accompanying me on this journey toward wisdom and beauty. I’m thrilled we get to share this new chapter.

Help Save Ruminate– I’ll match it

Ruminate, besides being a beautiful journal focused on serious consideration of faith and art, has been a steady supporter of my work. I’d like to return the favor.

Ruminate needs to raise $60,000 by Friday or they will close in December.
If you donate to their Art Matters: Keep Ruminate Alive! campaign I’ll match it.

I’ve got $500 here in matching funds, so– in support of a contemplative forum for faith and art, and the power of community support– please make a gift. When you do, let me know and I’ll match it.

And, just think, then you can add “art patron” to your resume.

Day 40, etc.

Day 25

Hurry! Eat– Hurry!
Dress– Hurry! Brush– Hurry! Shoes–
Morning has broken.

Day 34

Woman plodding through.
Girl-child grasps her hand, every
where skipping she goes.

Day 39

Twelve shut in a room,
some men, none angry. Futures
decided smoke-free.

Day 40

Because I gave her
time. She led me on, taking
care of everything.
