I The Stained Glass Garden Gallery

Flowers grow out of dark moments.
(Corita Kent)

Stained Glass Plumeria

Stained Glass Florals
My land is bare of chattering folk;
The clouds are low along the ridges,
And sweet's the air with curly smoke
From all my burning bridges.
(Dorothy Parker)

II The African Garden Gallery

Art is the unceasing effort to compete with the beauty of flowers and never succeeding.  (Marc Chagal)
African Canna Lily

Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
Into the rose garden.
(T. S. Eliot)


III The Abstract Vineyard Gallery

Creative minds have always been known to survive any kind of bad training.  (Anna Freud)

Vines in Window


To achieve your goal, your life may sound like a perfume counter--full of Passion and Obsession, leading to Joy.
(Peter McWilliams)


IV  The Grape Vine Gallery

Life in Lubbock, Texas, taught me two things: One is that God loves you and you're going to burn in hell. The other is that sex is the most awful, filthy thing on earth and you should save it for someone you love.   (Butch Hancock)


The best part is feeling alive making paintings and the worst
part is needing to make paintings to feel alive.  (Geoffrey Laurence)


V The Tropical Garden Gallery

Inspiration is for amateurs.. the rest of us just show up.  (Chuck Close)

Tropical Garden - Ti Plants


We must not be too ambitious. We cannot aspire to masterpieces. We may content ourselves with a joy ride in a paint box. And, for this, Audacity is the ticket.  (Winston Churchill)

I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.   (Albert Einstein)
