Visual Art is a beautiful language using the elements of art. It is universally spoken and invites the view into the artists world. A painter and art instructor for many years, I also enjoy writing, nature, family and friends. Take a peek into my studio; see what is on the easel, read my thoughts and tips, explore how faith, art, and life converge. The world of art is fun, challenging, exhausting and renewing all at the same time!

New Landscape from the Coast of the Island of Jersey
JULY FEATURED PAINTING! $30.00 ~ during the month of July! Sold
A new small landscape! Its been awhile since I've done a landscape - so it was fun to go back to this subject matter. This was part of an online project called Virtual Paintout. There is a monthly challenge given. Using Google Maps, street view - artists are invited somewhere new around the world to view the area and find an area to paint. This painting comes from the Isle of Jersey which is in the English Channel. See the link below for the exact site from which I painted virtually. Its along the eastern shore of the island. Its a fun idea - and something that would have been impossible just a few years ago! Thanks to the street view from Google we can go places that probably would never happen otherwise!
