The QUeen Of EVerything


Her majesty The queen .  I have really found my niche in regards to portrait paintings.  I enjoy creating these fictional Renaissance  women so much!  I am especially pleased with her!  She is 12x16 painted on a cradled wood panel with painted sides.  The photo does not do her beauty justice!

 Took a mini vacation- tried to relax at home,( hard to do when you work at home!) Spent a couple of days in  Cape Elizabeth Maine to see family, which definitely inspired me.  I am so ready to go back to work but one last day today I am spending with Sam, my youngest son.
First on my agenda, is spending some time organizing for my licensing deal but I so much would rather be painting.


Edward Hopper's 2 Lights painting then and now.  My sister lives on this street.

I plan on a couple of pieces and I am not sure which order but I am feeling another "Queen Of Everything" painting.  I like to think I coined that phrase five years ago but I've heard it in songs so who knows!  I also want to do a  "Farm To Table" piece but not what you think! I've had that idea since my son and his partner started their organic farm a few years back.  I need to create another  "The Art Collector"  as well.  A much more updated version.  All these ideas should keep me going for a while.
I am enjoying  the sweetest bunch of bunnies living under the thistle in our yard right now. (Our yard is mostly weeds and clover) I had eye contact with a gorgeous red fox at dusk the other night. Thankfully not near my yard of bunnies!  This is a magical time of year.

Four Cats And A Lady - New work



Completed on 6-30-2017.  16x20 on a cradled wood panel.  I know there has been talk about doing more dog paintings but I 've had  the idea for this piece for a while.  Loving all the sea breezy colors. 
Cats are so mysterious and I have two!

The Bird Watcher New painting


Completed on 6-16-2017  I love watching the many birds that stop by my yard.  I love to hear their songs.  Such sweet gentle creatures going about the business of the day while I paint. I was totally inspired by the Botticelli exhibit at the MFA lat weekend.  This painting is 12x16 on a cradled wood panel with painted sides.
