Fiesta Rose Painting

Fiesta Rose 16" x 16", mixed media

A bouquet of white roses from my daughter for Mother's Day inspired this rose painting.  Once I used the bright manganese blue in the foreground, it took on this fiesta feel. 

Just bright and fun....

Coastal Waves

Coastal Waves 16" x 20", mixed media
We have taken many visitors to Laguna Beach in California to walk the beach and climb the rocks and see the tidepools.  I see this coastal painting as a lovely memory during those times.

Land Girl Portrait

My husband says I've become a Netflix monster since our corner Blockbuster finally closed down.  He would always be the one to stop in at Blockbuster to get the latest released movie.  Now that we signed up for Netflix, I've discovered all the old British series and movies that we would never have rented at Blockbuster.  My latest movie series was "Land Girls" and the best thing is, Netflix will suggest more movies of the same!  I know.  Anyway, I'm loving it and I painted this portrait with a land girl in mind.  BTW..a land girl was a girl that signed up to do her part during the war in England and worked on farms to labor, etc.
