What I'm working on......

I'm working on another 12x16 piece.  You may recognize where my inspiration is coming from here.  Can't wait to add some strong color here and lots of details including some furry ones and special trinkets.

The Places Our Children Take Us.

 When your kids are ok everything is right with the  world.    My youngest son has struggled so much and for so long .  It is a bittersweet roller coaster ride daily but I think we are headed toward a good place now.  I feel determined and hopeful.  At the same time I am so proud of my two older sons.  My oldest newly married son is really working hard producing amazing videos and commercials and still has a little time for painting and illustrating.  My middle son continues to be mentored by a well known painter from Maine.  He's an already gifted painter, but learning and evolving so much into something wonderful.  I love the places our children take us.

I'm feeling that my next painting will be somewhat spiritual. I am in a good place right now and feel grateful.

La Primavera- New Painting

Completed on 2-22-17  La Primavera is  16x12 painted on a cradled wood panel with painted sides.  I love to infuse the old masters with a modern twist when it comes to still life paintings.  It wasn't until I actually photographed this piece that I noticed such a great energy about it.  The vivid colors and motion .  Thanks for looking.

Confessions Of A Wallflower- new painting

Completed on 2/2/17.  The name for this painting just popped into my head as I was finishing it.  18x24 on a cradled wood panel with painted sides.  I am so excited to show this piece to you. The larger size gives it great drama and the  floral backdrop had a mind of it's own.  Available on my website.
