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!

The red door grabbed my attention! A quiet street, gardens and flowers, a white picket fence, and a red door demanding that we stop and look! And it all seems to fit perfectly! This small painting is from a scene in Cape Cod... and is posted in the Virtual Paintout website.
I've worked in both watercolor and ink to create the sense of place.
There seems to be no end to all the busy-ness of this season! Its been a great season of family visits... and there's been extraordinary busy-ness at work with an old semester (final exams and grading) finishing up and a new semester (150 or so new names and faces to learn - and a new semester to get started).
This is a joyful painting from a few Januarys ago... I'm reposting it as I work on some new things in the studio. I very much hope to have something new and interesting posted soon!!
