I started this still life this past summer when flowers were still blooming.  With all of the snow that we've gotten this week...8 inches at my house the last time I measured...I enjoyed pulling out a little evidence of summer!  

If you would like your favorite memory or pet captured in paint, please send me a note about a commission:)!

What a Dream...Painting with Dreama!

Private Collection

I recently got the wonderful joy of painting for 3 days with Dreama Tolle Perry.  She has a wonderful spirit that encourages all artists to paint from the heart.  This painting was from the first day of the workshop and allowed me to experiment with color.  I had so much fun that on my way home my car actually got on the interstate heading back toward the studio.  Sadly, I had to get off the exit and head back toward home, but told my car not to worry...we'll be back one day!
