Colourful Contemporary Art

I am a professional artist and art teacher.
I paint the tenacious bits of wild that defy human activity in a manner inspired by
my fascination with fossils and designed to make the viewer look deeper.
Studio visits by luck or by appointment are welcome.

Mom's day

Happy Mothers day to all of the Mom's, and honorary Mom's out there.
The world needs more 'Mom's'.
It seems to me that there are all kinds of Mom's, and many of them didn't give birth to the people they are 'mothering'. Teachers, nurses, caregivers of all kinds, it doesn't matter what gender or cultural background these honorary Mom's are, they nurture and care for their charges whether blood relationships are involved or not.
That nurturing instinct is part of what made our species proliferate, and it's loss is part of what will eventually bring us down.
Yep the world needs more 'Mom's'.
The best kind of leader is the leader who celebrates, the accomplishments of their followers, who encourages them to be more that they were before. The best kind of leader grows their followers, teaching them to be independent, to think for them selves, to exercise compassion, and to lift the weak, just as that leader does.
The best kind of leader, gives their charges wings, and sheds a tear of joy, and pride when they fly.
Sounds like a Mom, my Mom.
If the Mom's led the world there would be no war, no hunger, no children with no one to love and care for them.
The world needs more Mom's.
