While my blog is a forum for my thoughts and musings, which is at the site http://www.lieseldiesel.blogspot.com, this place is a forum for my visual reflections. What's in the name? Lieseldiesel is the nickname my grandpa Ralph called me from as early as I can remember. Spending many a summer with my grandparents on their farm in North Carolina, I have fond memories of him calling out, "Liesel... Liesel Diesel... come help me get those chicken eggs".

Even though my mom noted that I (at a very early age) was quite skillful with my hands, most of my life has been a non artistic adventure - punctuated by an MBA and 20 years in business. My journey into the hues has been marked by a series of unexpected signposts, and the allure of art has been a recent yet irresistible attraction. I have discovered that art, whether creating it or viewing it, unshackles mysteries which cannot merely be seen. They must be experienced.
