The cart is empty

A close cousin of mine, Mark Green, just completed and sold one of his recent Abstract paintings. About a year ago, Mark had discovered he had a rather large brain tumor. He had the tumor removed and is now successfully recovering, thanks to the miracle of modern medicine and very talented surgeons. Although this has been a very tragic experience for Mark and his family, it has also been a remarkable gift and blessing, because Mark has a new found zest and outlook for life. It has awakened his focus and devotion to his family, God, friends, and art.  All the things that really matter in this short life we have. I will keep encouraging him to keep painting, simply because of his talent and the rewards that painting gives all us who do it, whether we have to meet incredible health challenges as Mark did. or to just fulfill the creative spirit with in us. 

Nice work Mark! Keep painting.
