When painting this oil painting and thinking of Italy, all my reflections seem to evoke the same memories! The quality of the light, the air, the landscape, the foliage, the architecture....... all are glorious! Picture yourself walking down a narrow unpaved road and suddenly this scene appears in the landscape nearby!Unforgettable!
My inspiration for An Eye For It came from my head as I thought about large looping shapes interlocking on the canvas. After completion, the shapes I have created in the acrylic painting remind me of eyes and the colors are harmonious! 30"x40" Acrylic on Canvas/SOLD
air’, and finished in the studio, this oil painting of a waterfall in Vickery
Creek in Roswell, GA was fun to paint. The contrast of the shade on the rocks and water in the foreground and
the brightly lit white water of the falls really excited me.Add to
that the sounds of the falls, the chirping of birds in the trees, and just
being outdoors, for the perfect ingredients for a lovely way to spend a day!

When I created the still life of calla lilies in my art studio, I was pleased with the arrangement of the lilies but knew I had to have some feature in the acrylic painting to counterbalance the natural orientation of flowers whose stem is unable to hold them upright! The yellow satin ribbon adds to the playfulness of the arrangement!

The color turquoise symbolizes calmness and new growth. For this reason, nurses often choose the color aquamarine, a form of the color turquoise, for their smocks. Turquoise comes from the French for "Turk". My painting, The Evolved Soul uses the color, turquoise, as unifying agent.
I enjoy painting the same subject matter in different mediums. Often the first painting will be done in watercolor, a fresh and spontaneous medium. Elegant Herb Study is for the viewer who loves soft transparent paintings!
Montalcino, Italy is a small city whose ancestors stubbornly resisted the Germans during World War II. The regions farmers made wine for centuries. I spotted the man in the orange shirt on a sunny afternoon outside the winery! Sometimes, it is merely a spot of color or the gesture of a figure that makes me want to paint!
The lady in this small oil painting exudes confidence! As women often compare ourselves to others failing to realize that each of us has outstanding features of our own! "Confidence" is a painting about you!
Blue Kimono II is a small oil painting on canvas panel. My inspiration came from the blue hue of the silk kimono worn by one of my favorite models to paint! I also love the contrast of the grass green velvet chair against the draping of the silk robe!
