Trees

I’m obsessed… With trees. I’ve always known that they’ve had a special place in my heart, but this last year I have given in to it. I’ve decided after years of painting trees that I should probably start paying attention to the fine details. So I started looking deeply at these beauties, and I’m a […]

Mindfulness

I recently completed my first residential meditation retreat. I write about it here because of the connection between mindfulness and creativity. We spend so much time muddled by our useless busy thinking. Out of touch with the true self, the creative self. Once you take away all distractions you are left with only yourself and […]

Window Show

Six months ago when I showed in the Marin Open Studios I submitted a piece of my work for window display. I entered one of my favorite pieces, “You have to be willing to lose everything.” Literally this is written in the painting. It is a mantra of mine. I love the messy random way […]

Buying Art

I used to paint all of the decor for my home. Then when I got my studio I ad enough space for all of my art to live in one spot. With only one of my pieces in my home now I had several blank walls. So I have begun buying art from artists I […]

Fish and other critters

I love painting backdrops. Yes, just the background. Then these beautiful canvases sit in my studio for years, unfinished because I can’t decide what to paint on them.  So recently I decided that these backdrops need critters, like Butterflies, Fish and other critters.

Birch on Birch

Working on a new Birch on Birch painting. These seem to be really popular and I enjoy painting them, so here I go again.  Large scale this time. I took a few pictures of the white layer because this layer is the foundation for all texture and color that comes afterwards. Up close you can […]
