Coming to an End
Endings are nothing more than beginnings out of focus. I look forward to every December for lots of reasons. One of the most important things to do in December is take a look back. Then, decide where to go in the year to come. Do you do something similar? I just love to have a fresh new year to think about and plan for.Read More
With Christmas on my mind, I am enjoying painting these two little cats for an upcoming gift. Animals lend themselves to all type of colors, shapes, and attitudes! : ) Hoping your holiday planning is fun this year.Read More

Since losing my FaceBook and Instagram social media accounts, I have had a lot of questions. Will the hacker hurt my reputation and/or business? How much time do I have to spend on “the fix?” Will I try to punish those who are responsible? How shall I move on? What platforms are in alignment with how I share my art? How do they treat their customers / investors? So far, I don’t have any answers. How do you get in alignment?Read More
I’m Still Standing – and Painting!

Painting the Beach
Headed to Litchfield Beach to paint with the Ladies of the Traveling Paints! We immerse ourselves in the act of painting. Outside during the day and round the table at night. Fun, fun, fun! Will make sure to show you what we did next week. For this week’s blog, I have posted some of my favorite beach paintings from over the years. Hope you enjoy them.Read More
Why does art matter to me?
From my very earliest days, I have been an artist, a mark maker, an observer, and most importantly – I share what I find. An artist communicates. Through film, dance, music, painting, sculpture, speech, etc. an artist can reflect the times in which they live. To that end, I am learning to use modern technology to communicate with my audience. I find myself surprised that I am enjoying the process. This blog has been very fun to use as a way of communication, and thank you very much for joining me. I am also learning to use video to communicate.Read More
Hurricane Ian has interrupted my painting practice. I have painted some, but will wait to share at a more appropriate time. The beautiful Southeastern coast and its people are hurting.Read More
