Gabriel's Message- New painting

This new piece speaks for itself.  I like to do one holiday themed painting each year and this idea felt appropriate.  It's difficult to see in the photo but there is a cardinal on the hedge on the left.  I plan on spending the next week organizing my Etsy shop.  I have many new prints that will be available and will be retiring some old ones as well.  This painting will be available as note cards.  Thanks for stopping by. to view this painting on my website.

The Gatekeepers - New work

Completed on 11-14-2015 -The Gatekeepers is my newest painting.  I am so grateful to be able to express myself in this way.  I cannot begin to tell you the joy and peace that I receive when I paint.  Whether its in the midst of turmoil, anxiety or profound sadness I am transported when I step into my  studio.  All is forgotten and I am there in control of my world .  The Gatekeepers is painted on a birchwood panel and is 20x16  with painted sides.  Thank you for stopping by.

The Minor Fall, The Major Lift- New painting

Completed on November 6th.  There is much meaning behind this painting I just completed today (at 11:11 btw).  The inspiration  for it comes from the title.  It went through so many changes before I got it the way I wanted it.  In some ways it is my self portrait although I do not play the violin.  I will leave it at that and let you interpret.  It's 12x16 painted on a cradled birchwood panel with painted sides.  click the link which will take you to my website for more info. 
Thanks for looking.

That's Where You Will Find Me.. New Original Painting now available

I'm sure I will be totally inspired after this weekend!

GOlden Slumber-New Work

SOLD/ Completed on Oct.10th  Sleep is something I think about all the time.  I suppose I paint people resting and sleeping often because I am trying to figure out how to make my son (Sam) sleep more than 4 hours a night.  It's a complicated situation but this is one way I keep it front and center.  Winter is coming but I can never get enough peonies and oceans and tiger stripped kitties!
Thanks for stopping by.

Songbird Returns- new painting-SOLD

I am always inspired by the brilliant still life's of the great artists of the past. In particular the classical, dramatic  back drops and settings.  This painting pays tribute with a twist.  I enjoy recreating objects from these works and bringing them into my world.  I also learn a few things along the way.  This painting is 8x10 created on a wood cradled panel with painted sides. I imagine this would make a beautiful holiday gift not mention wedding.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend.
