This was a re-do or inspired from a plein air piece painted in my neighborhood. The combination of the warmth of the grasses and cool sky colors are what grabbed me with this image. I loved recording this on canvas with a palette knife and creamy oil paints.
This is available for purchase. Email me for more info.
thank you for viewing art.

The nice handicap gentleman that works at our self service car was was giving out carnations for Valentines this year. He is always at work helping others. A big thank you to him for the wonderful service he gives. My sweet hubby gave me the roses for Valentines but I was so moved by his gesture of the carnations I added them to this still life set up.

The lighting out on the water in the Florida Keys is so all-encompassing and brilliant. I happened to have the luck to capture this fishing boat captain as he was casting his bait net off the front of the boat in perfect lighting. My hope is that I was able to portray some of the glow from the sun and water along with the action of the cast and water in this painting.
I painted "Bridge to Yesterday" on location when we visited New England last October during the height of fall foliage. The kaleidoscope of autumn colors was ablaze, and I was attracted to this brilliant red covered bridge connecting the golden landscape. Choosing this vantage point where you can see some of the river cascading over this rocky edge to the water below, you get a sense of how beautiful the surrounding scenery was on this gorgeous fall morning. Painted with palette knife and thick oil paint, this landscape is filled with color, movement and energy!

Norton memorial painting of Blue Bonnets. This one is Blue Bonnets on a
summer time scene. I take the painting and make what I see from what
Dorothy has done. She did not finish these paintings. I have done
that for her in my interpetation.
No restraint on color is like gorging on ice cream, candy and doughnuts. I know this, but it's so hard to put the sweets away. If you've looked at my past work, you know I enjoy pushing the color. I've made some pretty sweet confections at times. I'm learning to reign it in, and liking how it tastes. This piece is by no means somber, but I really had to tone it down from where I began. I fell in love with that riot of fall color on the river bank, and just went overboard on the doughnuts. Anyway, what I'm learning is, with just a bit of pure color in place, it's the grays that make it appetizing.
The beautiful and historic Bed and Breakfast - Hodge Podge Lodge - in Montgomery TX is the site for 14 of my original framed watercolors. The Lodge owner, Jeff Angelo, selected my works to beautify the interior of the B&B with some Texas inspired scenes.
