This painting is the start of a new series about landscapes that represent transitions.  Hopefully the spiritual aspect will come into play as I expire this idea further; the transition or veil between life and death, renewal and ending.

Along The Black River

This is a 12x16" oil painting I did (commission) for a friend.  I rarely do these kind of jobs because it's hard to get the feeling of a place unless I'm there in person, taking my own photos and gathering my own color information.  However…in this case, because I know the person and he had exceptional photos (and lots of them) I decided to go for it.  I'm so glad I did, and it made everyone happy.  That's what it's all about!

First Day of School


"Hi!  I'm a little nervous, but mostly excited about my first day of school!"  Remember how that felt?  I sure do, and I think it translated perfectly into this adorable hippo sculpture.  He's about the size of a coffee cup, hand-sculpted polymer clay with acrylic paint.  I've decided I'm happiest doing it all; painting, making greeting cards and sculpting.  So stay tuned, and that's what you'll see…everything!

Boss Lady

"Boss Lady" 12x16" Oil on Linen Panel
She's the boss!  I really enjoyed working on this one, and focused on capturing the different personalities in this herd of goats.  These goats live at the Tweedy Ranch near San Angelo, TX.  They are obviously very loved and spoiled (like all the animals there), and came running to see who the new visitor was!

Dream Journal Collection

I've been working on a collection of "Pocket Journals" with abstract watercolor designs.  They can be used for anything, but the designs make me think of dreams and the subconscious.  These would make great stocking-stuffers for Christmas (don't hate me for mentioning it, I am going to be prepared this year)!  You too can benefit from my advanced Christmas gift planning.  The type can be customized  and changed to a person's name, or any other idea you can think of (Book of Wishes?  10 Million Things I Need To Do By Tomorrow?).   As always, thank you so much for reading my blog and taking a look!

Blue Lily With Stars Greeting Card

I had a lot of fun designing this card.  It features my painting, "Blue Lily With Stars" surrounded by a silver border on a rich plum background…elegant!  The greeting can be customized to you own message; you can make it into a birthday card, an anniversary card or anything you'd like.

Water Lily Thank You Notecard

This is a painting from a show of water lily paintings and prints I did in San Angelo, TX a couple of years ago.  The original is called "La Reine" (The Queen).  I thought it was truly the queen of lilies I saw on that day-majestic and elegant.
