Santa Fe & new paintings

My photographer husband ( and I were just out in Santa Fe appreciating life... the other worldly rock formations, the gritty terrain, bodacious skies, fellow artists and ART!  Rich and juicy fine art!  What a thrill to be out West again and see it together, as our eyes are even more seasoned than the last time.  That's the beauty of growing older and wiser, right?  There's less stuff to get hung up on (less stuff in general) and more to be savored on every journey.  I showed my paintings to several galleries and was happy to hear such positive reviews.  Grateful to the wonderful folks we met.  Oh, my work on those gallery walls!  And since, I'm rather obsessed with Western Art, it is all falling into place.  We'll be back soon, New Mexico.  Thanks!


In the meantime, I am all aglow around my work.  So many inspirational ideas are ready to spill out onto the canvas.  I have two new paintings that I started over the summer.  "Home Land" is just about complete (maybe a touch up or two or maybe I'm really done and just don't know it yet ; ) and another will be posted soon.  They are both a part of my Native American series.  Enjoy and see you again soon...

New Beginnings

I have been in my studio painting for months now and I am thrilled to start sharing my artwork with all of you! My aim is to get into the ideal galleries, wherever they may be, with the unique work I do. My paintings most often include people and animals. I like to tell a story, through the elements of my composition, through the eyes, through someone's soul.  

One of my most recent paintings will be a part of the Maine College of Art's COLLECT Art Sale. If you are in the Portland, ME area, please mark your calendar. The sale runs from October 8th-10th. It is a fun/smart/easy way to build your art collection with work from Maine artists. Half of the proceeds will go to scholarship funds for MECA. Many talented artists will be on display and have work available for purchase. For more information please visit MECA's site: - I hope to see you there!  

Please continue visiting... I'm close to completing my next 30" x 40" painting! Thank you!!!
