About The Artist

Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States
Hello! I am a fine arts painter, with a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. My primary painting medium is oil and alkyd, and mostly I work in a representational style. My greatest challenge as a painter is to capture the effect of light; and my greatest joy as a painter is to accomplish that. Many thanks to those readers who have been following this blog since Day 1 (May 19, 2008). To those who are visiting for the first time today...Welcome, and thanks for dropping by!

Planting Peace

Mary's Peace Lilies, 2008
Oil and alkyd on canvas panel
6" x 8" unframed

I've always been fond of the peace lily. It is beautiful, hearty, and doesn't require a lot of "maintenance."

It appears that the plant is a good thing to have in one's household, since it is able to absorb indoor "contaminants" and pollutants. Some sources claim that the peace lily can absorb the radiation emitted by televisions, radios, computers, digital and electronic devices, and may have a positive effect on people undergoing radiation or chemotherapy treatments.

According to Feng Shui practitioners, the plant can balance and harmonize the energy in home, bringing calm and "peace" to relationships.

I usually think of the peace lily being an indoor plant. Here in Florida, the plants grow quite well in outdoor gardens, as I have depicted in the painting featured today.

Maybe this is a good week to add a peace lily to your environment!

Thanks for looking. Your questions and comments are welcome.

Have a peaceful Monday. See you Wednesday!
