The Dance of Life - woman and Degas

"Remembering" - sold
oil on 1.5" deep canvas

I often wonder what people are thinking when they view a painting.
Maybe it touches them in some way and stirs a personal memory.
So in todays painting I wanted to convey that perspective.

Reading and Writing - Pens & Books still life

"Reading and Writing"
oil on 1.5" deep canvas - 6"x8"- sold

I really love good books and writing pens. There is
something marvelous about touching a special pen
to paper that can't be beat or getting lost in the
pages of a story that stirs my imagination.

My painting was aired this today (April 25th) on CBS Sunday morning art segment
- titled "What's Next" by Martha Teichner. I did the painting for a
challenge with a group on:The Artist's Challenge Blog

"Intimate Moment"

I don't think I need to say much! I'll let you
make up your own thoughts on this one. :)

The painting on the wall is imaginary and loosely
based on an old photo from the 1800's.

My mom use to love pickled foods. I remember that she use to
make her own canned pickles, tomatoes and some jams & jellies.
Of course, today, most people just buy them at the grocery but
they never taste the same as mom's!

Springtime Daffodils - still life

"Springtime Daffodils" - sold
oil on 1.5" deep canvas - 6"x12"

I am really enjoying some of these new and different sizes of
canvas. They fill those small spaces on the wall and inspire new
ideas, like doing a painting of my favorite flowers in a tall glass vase.
One of our first signs of spring. I am always so happy to see them in
full bloom but also get a bit sad because they leave so quickly.
