this is a site to share new works as I finish them including paintings, illustrations, hand formed and shaped necklaces. ...and maybe I'll share a story or two about how they came about.
This little painting is full of color and simple pleasures. In the style of my Modern Scandinavian Garden Series - I used simplified geometric lines and bright colors . This piece is about clean lines and COLOR.

It's been too long since I have created a piece for my Modern Scandinavian garden series. I thought it was time for a cheerful little piece. What could be more cheerful than a sweet song bird sitting on whimsical blooms with a swirly backdrop?
I contrasted geometric and elongated shapes against over-exaggerated organic shapes and then topped it with vibrant color to give this little painting a sweet and happy tone.

While walking on my Grandmother's property, in northern Minnesota, I was pleased to discover a sweet grouping of grasses along the boarder of her harbor. With the cooler temperatures these grasses must have turned from green to yellow - creating a sweet and happy boarder to the lake.
It didn't take me long to get to work on these flowing beauties. I had the color scheme in mind and started sketching. I felt a square 40"x40" canvas would work best for this piece. The final piece is meant to put the viewer at ease. It is a calm piece. Think of walking by the lake on a lovely autumn morning with a cup of coffee in hand and nothing but inspiration on your mind.
