I’m still on a floral kick.  Loving the process of  gathering flowers from my imaginings and plopping them into jars and vases that I’m dreaming up.  Flowers and jars that catch my eye when I’m out and about in the neighborhood  get filed away for future paintings.  My heart races when I happen upon a … Continue reading

I pass this marsh every time I drive to the beach in Rye. Each time I think to myself that I should – I need to paint it. There is a white egret that seems to be there every time I pass and he’s beautiful. It seems that most of my inspiration lately comes from that stretch of Ocean Boulevard…

To be able to take a class with the iconic Matthew Mead directly on the heels of his gorgeous cover for BHG magazine this month is nothing short of surreal. Talk about interacting in real-time!

I call this art piece “It Takes a Village” because it was a collaboration with people that love Liam. Each birthday I try to create something meaningful that he will take into his future.

The pressure is on to push myself on these last ten pieces but for the moment, can I just say that I love this one? I think I am just crushing on the direction my florals have taken these past few weeks. It has a little something to do with the “painting every day” exercise – things just flow better and become more refined the more you work and flex your creative muscles. I’ve had days where I have had a million ideas and …

… the “Dutch” painter in me was having a moment. On second look I see what she means; I’m rocking some delft blue throughout the piece and am trying to give a modern twist to the botanical still life of old through the use of riotous colors. Ahhh to paint like the Masters – one can only dream.

When I set out to paint 50 paintings, I really didn’t have a plan of what I was going to paint. I just wanted to create new art and explore new techniques. I wanted to push myself beyond my small and safe canvases and see what I liked and what I didn’t like…

The greens of a future springtime are just waiting for their moment again but for now I’m digging the solemnity of a bit of a winter palette…

This little piece of pottery came from one of my flea marketing excursions with my sister. It is such a little gem all earthy and old. Right now it is sitting on our mantle at the beach. Here it sits in my studio but in the form of a painting…
