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.
Bull Rush and Sunfish Passages was a fun brush and palette knife painting. The sky and water are swimming in blues as the bull rush guides your eye upward. I hope you can feel the anticipation of the Canoer - as he looks for the perfect sunfish hole.

|The forest was alive with color and red was at it's core.|
RED - Once-n-awhile I have to paint a red painting. This painting has 50+ variations of red in it. A painting with this much red can only hang in certain locations BUT when it finds the right fit - it can light up and finish a room. I photographed Nature's Spark in natural light and tungsten light to show the difference light makes on the feeling of this piece.

Bittersweet is perhaps my favorite model. It twists and turns and has elegant spiral leaves. The berries are bold and sweet and any background will compliment the orange, yellow, red shells.

|The temperatures are warming and restaurants are putting out their umbrellas and outdoor seating. We are all anticipating sitting under those umbrellas with visiting friends. We are dreaming of sandals and skirts and light layers. We imagine warm breezes and the scent of fresh flowers surrounding us. They will all be here soon!|
