  • Yellow Roses Yellow Roses
    Yellow roses represent friendship and caring. They convey affection and warmth, another way of saying, remember me or good luck. I love yellow roses, and took care in building the oil paint to make this painting look like a tapestry. If you love yellow roses, this painting will bring you a lot of joy!

  • Wildflowers Wildflowers
    This painting was inspired by a picture. I have always loved wildflowers and when I saw the picture in a calendar I was drawn to it. I changed it up a bit, and the flowers are much denser, but I was extremely pleased with the way it came out. It reminds me of running up a hill and turning the bend and much to my surprise there was a blanket of beautiful, colorful wildflowers covering the landscape. Then I would pick a bunch of the little fragile flowers cradling them gently in my hands until I arrived home to place them in a vase where they graced my kitchen table!

  • View from the Window View from the Window
    Flowers on the window ledge was taken from an image that was embedded into my mind. A memory of a kitchen window with cheerful sunflowers in a glass vase. Colors of summer leaves fading out as autumn leaves blended in with them. A slight trail of a path leading into the dense woods, as the leaves waved, beckoning me to come and be one with nature!

  • This painting is a pink wonderland and the bike is the perfect vehicle for the wonderful view. I saw a similar picture in a calendar, changing it up quite a bit, but still keeping the pink loveliness of the cherry trees and bike. The painting is whimsical and invites you in to sit on one of the park benches. It was fun to create! Oil/Canvas - 20" x 16"
  • This painting is very important, because it documents the times. US Naval Hospital ships bring hope, healing and comfort. The “Mercy” ship is the largest civilian hospital ship, and it was sent to Los Angeles during the COVID19 Pandemic. I painted this ship with the “Angel of Mercy,” and doves. The doves are a symbol of love and peace. As an artist I feel that it is my duty to put my God given gift to use when there are monumental events happening in this bright yet sometimes bitter world that we live in. This painting documents the last few months. Oil/Canvas - 11" x 14"

    This painting is bright and cheery. It is framed in a beautiful green glossy metal frame that really makes these sunflowers pop. Definitely one of my favorites, bringing to mind a time when I was on a farm and way in the back there was an open field with many tall, lovely sunflowers. I still remember the day, as there was not one cloud in the sky and the sun was so bright as it shined down on the field that all I could see was yellow and brightness. I remember thinking, “I wonder if heaven is like this?”
    Oil/Canvas - 22" x 12" (Framed)
  • Stretching the blues away, was inspired by photos of yoga poses. I saw the pictures, then right away the title came into my mind as I envisioned a woman stretching surrounded by the color blue. As I got deeper into the painting the idea of a blue tattoo came into my mind. "The painting evolves as the mind roams," and here is the finished product! Acrylic/Canvas - 20" x 10"

  • Pinky

    Brings back a memory when I was going to my first prom and I wanted this gorgeous pink gown, but my parents said “No,” because it was too “grown up,” looking for me. I will always remember that gown and my longing for that beautiful shoulder less gown with the over skirt of tulle. That is the story of how “Pinky” was created! Acrylic/Canvas - 45" x 35" (Framed)
  • When I was younger I constantly had dreams of walking through a castle, rubbing my hands along the stone walls as I walked by. I decided that I would paint a forgotten castle, high on the hill overlooking the water. I added a huge, colorful mysterious moon for a mystical look. I like the title: “Once Upon a Time,” it seems to sum it up nicely!
    Oil/Canvas - 18" x 14"
  • Mother Sun

    The sun is the powerful center of the solar system, providing life-giving light, energy and heat to the Earth. Insects are also crucial components of the ecosystem. They pollinate blossoms, aerate the soil, control plant pests and other insects. Bees are vital to pollinate the food we need to survive. Due to the use of toxic pesticides bees are constantly threatened and are in decline. This painting points out that the bee is at the top of the hierarchy and that other insects are extremely important too. Climate change is a contributing factor in the decline of bees; help a bee in need by planting bee-friendly flowers!

  • Modern Girl

    After my husband passed I spent a lot of time in book stores looking at books and magazines. I came upon an idea of painting a models body and changing the face to somebody that I knew. My friends were more than happy to help because they liked the idea. I have continued with this method of painting, if I see a gown or a pose that inspires me. I adore fashion and the beautiful magazines that highlight lovely, faces, bodies, clothing and accessories. So when I paint these rather huge paintings I find it to be very exciting, almost as if I am part of the fashion industry!
    Acrylic/Canvas - 44.5" x 35" (Framed)
  • Lullaby of the Sea Lullaby of the Sea
    I always loved Mermaids and the idea came to me of painting a magical Mermaid lifting a conch shell to her ear as she listened to the lullaby of the ocean. This lovely sea creature has such a soothing look about her that you instantly get a sense of calmness and serenity when you view this painting. I was extremely pleased with the finished work.
    Oil/Canvas - 28" x 25" (Framed)

  • Italy in the Moonlight Italy in the Moonlight
    The creation of this painting came to me by a friend through a challenge. They sent a photo of an Italian village nestled into the hills and challenged me to paint a likeness of it. An extremely detailed painting,  I love the composition of all the colors, texture and light. I hope other people can enjoy this as much as I enjoyed painting it!

  • Gloxinias in the Round Gloxinias in the Round
    My uncle used to save the bottoms of wooden cheese boxes and glue them together for me to paint on. I never used them until COVID 19 hit. Then I ran out of canvas and I was so happy to have these wooden circles in my closet. That is how I came up with the idea for the “flowers in the round” series.
    Acrylic/Wood - 13" x 13"

  • Even Angels Fall Even Angels Fall
    The woman with a Dragon on her back represents a time when a woman stands up for herself. Unapologetic about her beliefs. The Dragon is the embodiment of Chaos and Untamed Nature. The Dragon stands for action without fear of consequences. Dragons symbolize depth, passion and protection! “Even Angels Fall” means that there is a time when women have to break out of “pleaser” mode, because pleasing comes from a place of fear, (fear of loss or rejection.) Giving however, comes from a place of pride and strength because you truly care about someone without expecting something in return. Realizing that it is okay to develop emotional boundaries with people, and it is okay to be angry if it gives us a sense of ourselves that leads to an emotional, beneficial re-education. This is a powerful painting about a woman awakening to her authenticity!
    Oil/Canvas - 18.5" x 13.5" (Framed)
  • Cinque Terre in the Sunshine Cinque Terre in the Sunshine
    This painting stems from my love of Italy! Colorful cliffside houses, bright red flowers, sun, sea and sand; what more can you ask for? This painting captures it all with it’s panoramic views and colorful tower homes inviting you to enter with your imagination. Gloriously bright colors will draw you in and make you feel at home in this charming seaside village! Oil/Canvas - 23" x 27" (Framed)
  • Castle Walls Castle Walls
    Castle Walls is a painting that was created after the poem in my blog. I have always been fascinated by castles and have often dreamed of wandering through the corridors of a magnificent stone castle. This is the second castle that I have painted, the first one is titled “Once Upon a Time.” There is a Medieval story which consists of three poems in my blog that were the inspiration for these paintings that brought to life the images in my mind of these grand, romantic, impressive and dramatic fairytale fortresses!
