Welcome to my art blog.

This is where you'll find some of the things I'm trying to accomplish... a little of this and that. Paintings, photography, collage and sewing...every artful endeavor helps me keep my sanity in this mixed up world.

Safe and Sound

My latest paintings to sell have made their way safely to Wisconsin and rest on the wall in a beautiful home of a new friend.  Thank you Terri for wanting these for your home.  They look wonderful in this setting.

Spring is in full swing

The Whatcom Art Market in the Fairhaven District of Bellingham is definitely showing signs that spring is in full bloom.  It's a great place to find gifts and greeting cards to show the world that the Pacific Northwest is indeed a special place.

Saying Goodbye

Well, after sharing my life with these three paintings for a year or so, I will be sending them off to live with their new family in Wisconsin.  Am I the only artist who forms an attachment to my paintings, who feels a bit of a loss when they sell?  That is the point of painting them in the first place, right?  To send them out into the world with the love that I've poured into creating them.   I need to paint three more very soon.

Prelude to Spring

I know it's technically still the middle of winter, but my local grocery store has rolled out the primroses, hyacinths and daffodils and the bare alder trees are getting that pinkish tinge before they sprout leaves....all really good signs of spring being around the corner.  Can't wait.

Summer in the Middle of Winter


Remember when watermelon was only available in the summer.  Remember all those SEEDS.  This is an 8" x 8" acrylic on its way to DailyPaintworks.com.

What's in a name?

I think friends are a good source of help in naming a painting.  The name "Bunions" came to mind while imagining an apt title for this painting, but I went with my friend's "The Last Time I Danced".  Much better.
