Arctic Charm New painting


Completed on 1-24-2017  A few years back I did a painting called Curtain Call also with a Polar Bear which seemed  in step with our environmental status.  I wanted to do another piece with a similar theme but a more classical feel.  16x12 on a cradled wood panel with painted sides.

A Room Of One's Own- New painting



Completed on 1-13-2017 My morning ritual whenever  possible is visiting all my favorite art blogs.  I came across Vanessa Bell 's work who happened to be the sister of Virginia Woolf.  I was so inspired reading about their lives and the Bloomsbury Group of artists, that I created a piece full of their imagery. I have a thing about sisters (since I five of them).  My brother happens to be the writer in our family though! 
I know I should have painted a "wolf" but foxes are my thing too. (:
Thanks for looking.

The Three Amigos- New small painting


Completed on 1-3-2017.  Happy New Year! It's so good to be back working after a long break.  This is my first new painting of 2017.  It's 9x12 on a cradled wood panel with painted sides. 2016 was a amazing year for my work.  My paintings have made their way to Australia, Italy and China this past year!  Thank you all for your interest and support .  I am bursting  with new ideas and things to say through interiors, objects and animals.  Hope we can all get along like these three amigos!

What I'm working on


Happy New Year.  I'm back in the studio.  Starting off with a small piece this year.  Although I love painting all sorts of beautiful animals in  pretty places, my heart belongs to CATS. Despite the fact that  our beloved Theo and Gracie have knocked our  tree over, broken ornaments and kept us up all night playing hockey with marbles on the wood floors, I can't help but love painting them.
