On my easel


Showing a bit  more progress on my painting.  I was planning on having it completed today or Monday but last evening I had a bad car accident on my way to see my son Sam.  I was rear ended and sideswiped on the highway when all the traffic came to a screeching halt.  So scary  but I am thankful for my car.  It was like a tank and protected me as well as other  forces were for sure.  Anyway, perhaps Monday or Tuesday I will be back with this new piece.

What I'm working on..


I'm back! My son's wedding was amazing.  The setting was lovely in Stowe Vermont.  Great to be with  friends and family. 
I wasn't sure if I could get on track this soon but today was the day .  This painting is 18x24 I decided to work on a few larger scale paintings and zero in on some details.  More statement type pieces with lots of influences.

What I'm working on....


I started a new piece this week with a familiar theme. It will have a lot of twists and turns of course!   It's 14x18.  I was in Martha's Vineyard last week and found an awesome art supply store there.  They had  a great selection of things,   especially wood panels than had very thin cradles,  which I love to paint on.  I am hoping to have it completed by Friday/ Saturday.

A Reflective August

I've been catching up on my commission work this week.  Commission work  takes me to a different kind of place. I feel very reflective of my own life  during the process which is very enlightening.   I suppose staring at someones else's  personal photos ( of whom I don't know) has something to do with it.   I am excited to show my client hopefully by the end of today.  Next week my husband is on a much needed vacation so I most likely will not be working the whole week.  My oldest son Zachary is getting married in a little more than two weeks! My in studio time will be limited in Sept. but it's all part of the process.  This was a painting from three years ago now.  I've always loved it.

Jerome and The Leopard- New painting




Completed on August 15th.  Henri Rousseau is a favorite painter of mine and this painting was pretty much inspired by his work along with some other magic realism, and surrealism painters as well. I really love working with this red against the many greens and flora.  Jerome and the Lion is actually a biblical story in which Jerome removes a large splinter from the lions paw.  Love that idea too.  16x20 on a cradled wood panel with painted sides.  Thanks for stopping by.  For sale on my website
