I know I have been painting a lot of snowy paintings, but that is all I have been seeing out my windows!! This painting, Feed the Birds, was inspired by my sweet daughter, Tara. She is such a compassionate soul. She is the person in our house who makes sure the birds are fed. Here is a photo of her reaching up to refill a suet feeder. It doesn't surprise me that she is studying to become an Early Childhood Special Education teacher. She loves children and wants to help those with special needs. I am very proud of her--and all of my children!
The next painting, My Heart, is my first Valentine's Day inspired creation. I used pages from a very old book on her dress. Both of these paintings will be listed on Ebay soon!
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
