I recently completed a workshop in abstract painting with 
talented Toledo artist Julie Draeger. It was both fun and enriching
and an opportunity for me to work outside my comfort zone. 
The results, if you haven't guessed, are on my Abstract page. 
Are they successful? Maybe. Maybe not. But they introduced me
to a new way of thinking about art. Check them out.

It's extrapolated from an EKG performed
 to identify a heart problem.Two oil paintings in the series, 
like this one, take on the aspect of a landscape.
