These are my latest paintings. The first one is a still life of Roses in a glass jar. The second one is something I like to do from time to time. I enjoy looking at vintage photos and then paint my impressions of them. Of course they are all black and white, so that gives me the liberty of guessing the colors. This one is my Aunt Judy on her honeymoon in 1957. They stayed in a cabin at the Lake of the Ozarks. The bumper sticker indicates that they visit Marvel Cave on their trip. I asked her what color the 1950 Ford was, and it was indeed white. Unfortunately, it was stolen a few weeks later when they moved to Norfolk, Virginia where my Uncle Dave shipped out as a Navy man. The still life is available on my Ebay auction. The link is at the top of this page.
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.
