The mark is a combination of multiple circles and a Roman cross that communicates interconnectivity of our spiritual lives and our connections to one another.
I recently saw the potential for the Celtic knot inspired logo to be used within a graphic pattern. So I spent a couple hours exploring a possibility. The finished design could be described as a funky mod fabric pattern. The excercise was anything but exuastive but I'm sastified with the current solution.
I discovered as I was working the simpler designs were working the best. I was tempted to create a complicated multlayer pattern but found that they just looked thoughtless and busy proving out the age-old adage more is less. More pattern fun to come.

North Beach Fort Desoto
I'm posting this photo from our July vacation one because I believe it could make a great painting and two it's a quick way to get a post on my blog. I'm really interested in testing the color possibilities of this photo. I see the water being loaded with greens, blues, magentas and yellows. I think I can enhance the color experience as well as diddle some with my painterly technique. I'm really disappointed in my lack of proficiency this summer and am anxious to get back to painting. Hopefully I will be up and running soon. I'm going to experiment with a larger format on this piece to see how I might need to adjust technique but also, if it's successful, have a painting for my office wall. Sketches to come.
