p-43  UNTITLED - 1973 - 48" X 80" - Oil on canvas  With the confidants of walking form one room to another, I was set on a path that would lead me to "dropout," literally overnight. My life, with all that encompassed as a successful artist and teacher in Florida, abruptly ended. The fall of 1973 marked the end of an era. I put my home on the market, resigned my teaching position, and moved to the Smokey Mountains of North Georgia.  I say, my soul wished to speak. Are artist spiritual creatures?  Do I believe I have a soul, the container of love.   It was filled with self-importance,  malignant to the soul.   I had a yearning for something my cognitive mind did not understand.  odd  f-040  Freedom of Speech - 1968 - 68" X 146" - Mixed Media - Commissioned by the Orlando Sentinel  Romance on a Canvas
