Now that my books are here I want to take a moment to let you know about the cover art. The original painting hangs on the wall in my house and is one of my favorites by the artist, Eunice Warfel. She has worked in several mediums, including this painting which is alcohol ink. I am continually amazed by what she is able to create, and even more than that, I am honored to have the opportunity to collaborate with her on this project. Not only is she a fantastic person and artist, but she’s also my mom. So, thanks, Mom for sharing your gift with me, for walking along side me, and for being excited with me.
Here’s what she has to say:
I’ve always loved art but only became passionate about it when I was introduced to Alcohol Inks. I love the vibrancy of the inks and love to watch them work and interact with each other. I especially love painting flowers and seascapes in inks as well as watercolor. I’ve had the privilege of living on four continents and visiting every continent with the exception of Antarctica. Having seen so much of the world, I have so many pictures tucked away in my mind that I want to paint. I’m drawn to the abstract and semi-abstract and love to be more playful than detailed in my art. Photography is also a love of mine. I love capturing birds in the wild and close ups of flowers. I see beauty in almost everything and enjoy photographing the most simple things in an unusual and/or elegant way. I’ve been privileged to live in other countries and travel quite a bit and I’m always looking for opportunities to capture the wonderful sights.
