Angels and Owls

Lately I have become fascinated by nature, the beauty of God's designs. I have become so inspired by gorgeous botanical and bird prints. They are stunning images.

I Read The News Today

As I have mentioned before, I grew up wit five older sisters in the 19 60's and 70's. The Beatles were always playing in the background unless my father was home and then it was Frank- as in Sinatra.
Anyway, this new 8x10 painting has a British flare. I feel my work is evolving into something very exciting for me.

In this painting you can see the Matisse inspired elements. The boy in the painting within the painting represents my son Samuel. In my own home, you can always find him on the couch. He has autism and finds comfort in rocking against the couch. I especially love the yellow curtain paired with the blue wallpaper. Manhattan in the background.

Words You Cannot Utter

One of the hardest things in life is having words in your heart that you cannot utter. I forget where I read this but I know James Earl Jones said it.
Today I decided to do a little experimenting. This just sort of came out.
This is done with acrylic paints on a 16x20 stretched canvas. The sides have been painted navy blue and doesn't require a frame.

This is an original painting that I created in response to the times we are in. Two of my three son's are aspiring artists. Max was just accepted into the Museum of Fine Arts School in Boston, MA. and my other son, Zach, is following his own unique path. People are always saying to them " you can't make a living as an artist, you'll starve." I say the world is in great need of creative people with original fresh ideas. There are many opportunities for a young person with an art education. Gifts, talent,original ideas are not things that can ever be out-sourced.This painting is 9x12 done in acrylics on stretched cotton.
$200.00 unframed.

Pretty Puppy Lady Girl

I decided to take a break today from painting and saw our yellow lab in deep thought. Abbey is the greatest dog ever. She is so smart and sweet. She completes our family. I've been meaning to write about her.
