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!

What Inspires You?
What beauty awaits the patient eye. Quiet wandering ~ observation ~ a listening ear.
Taking time in a busy day to slow down, to visit the world of Creation,
to allow the path to lead along twists and turns.
Inspiration can be found in the soft ripple,
a burst of color,
the call of a bird
As the sun filters between the leaves and gives a last golden glow,
inspiration is born
and I imagine what my paint brush might produce
What inspires you? How will you interpret beauty?
This is the perpetual question the artist must answer!
To absorb, to breathe in the colors and shapes and movement of the natural world,
to edit it, to rearrange it when needed, and to maintain its qualities of wonder.
To capture beauty and interpret it in colorful strokes of pigment.
