In 2007, I began blogging. It is exciting to create consistently, sell my work around the world, and meet wonderful friends! I paint, teach, write, am a lover of nature, family and friends. This is where I post my latest studio work with comments about my process, tips about my techniques, and my thoughts on how faith, art, and life converge. Book mark me and visit again soon!

Variegated Foliage, acrylic (used as water color) on paper
Once again, I'm drawn to botanical subject matter! This one seems very tropical to me, though I didn't start with that idea. It is approximately 5 x 5". I started out with watercolor, which I often do - but, just needed to see more brilliance in the colors ... thus the acrylic. At the end, I decided to paint a hot tropical aqua line around the main shapes. Why? It just seemed to speak a need!
