This month has been incredibly busy as we prepare for my daughter's wedding.  Its a joyous time, but  I haven't been able to spend as much studio time as I would like, so I'm posting some recent paintings that are still available and ready to be shipped!

Sunflowers, again

  I find myself often drawn to paint these beautiful flowers that grow in so many different varieties. 
They also seem to define summer time in some ways too!

Celebrating 6 Years of Brushstrokes, etc.

       Here's a little look at some of my favorite paintings over the last 6 years. Most of these have been sold and are living somewhere across the nation, or overseas! What a great opportunity it has been to meet so many people from so many corners of the world! And I look forward to the next years as I meet more new friends and continue to learn and practice my craft! I have found that it is true of art - the more you learn and know, the more you realize how much you don't know!

Abstract .... it may be finished!

Water Separated from Water, 32 x 16" acrylic on canvas

I think this may be complete.  I'm still assessing the final form to be sure. 
This one depicts the section of Genesis one that speaks of God's creative forces of separating he water of the planet from the waters of the atmosphere. 
I'm working on a larger series of these first days of creation as recorded in the first chapter of Genesis, this one is the third in that series.
