Dinner At Eight ~New work


My latest original painting.  I enjoy looking through old vintage bird prints and came across this  lovely creature!  I wish the photo captured more of the fine detail. 12x16 on a flat wood panel.  (Framing required ) I am continuing in a series of smaller animal, bird fanciful pieces! Thanks for looking!

Blue Heron Still Life- new work


Completed on 1-24-2018  Driving around with Sam the other day a magnificent Blue Heron swooped  down in front of my car.  I always consider unusual animal encounters some sort of sign.  I like to think it means someone is watching out for us all.  Just a reminder .  Anyway, that's the idea for this painting.  Yes Blue Herons can live near the ocean and fresh water.  I am working on a series of smaller paintings for now.  Thanks for looking!

The Art Collector 16x20


Completed on 1-19-2018  This is a painting idea I had been thinking about for quite sometime.  I decided to work on wood for this one with acrylics and  oils. 16x20  with painted sides.   I was inspired by one of my favorite painters Matisse.  The purple dress I found in a fashion magazine and brought along some of my favorite things to balance out the composition.  
Thanks for looking.  Available on my website

Poets And Daughters- New painting


Happy New Year!  This is my first painting of the new year.  I decided to work in oils and really enjoyed the process.  Things take a little longer working in oils and I had to be more patient!  
This painting is 16x20 on a gallery wrapped stretched canvas with painted sides.  
Hope you had a great holiday break and I look forward to sharing my new work with you all.

A few of my images were used in a Christmas service L.A. !


The art director from a Unitarian Church in Los Angeles contacted me a few months ago about showing my images as a backdrop to their Christmas service .  He sent me this shot which was before the service began.  I felt honored my work was selected.
