I am here...



Hi everyone...or should I say...Aloha!
I've captured so many inspirational photos
I can't wait to get started painting! This time away
has been good though, not just for relaxing in my favorite
place, but also for reflection about where I am,
and where I am going. I love vacations!
So good for the mind and soul:)
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week and I'm sorry I haven't been visiting
everyone, but my computer doesn't work so well in the sun!
I plan on posting some photos soon!

Blush...



contact me

I just finished this one and called it "Blush". I love this color!
I just got my hair done, highlights, and am feeling
so happy! I love getting my hair done. It's just like spring
all fresh and new!

Spring blooms...

available here



It was such a beautiful day here today so I spent sometime outside, but
managed to finish this one. I sat out near some gigantic lilac bushes (more like trees).
We have white and lilac and they smell so sweet. 
The only bad thing was all the bees.
There were bees of every kind but mostly the big black bomber bees, I think they're called 
wood bees. I left them alone and they thankfully they did the same. I don't 
know if they sting but I sure didn't want to find out!
I had a great weekend...I hope you did to.


(I'm surprised I didn't capture a bee in this photo!)

I'll call her Spring...

She just reminds me of Spring so I'm calling her "Spring 1". The "1" because I might do more like this. 
If you've been following my art for awhile then you know I'm not that creative when it comes to titles.
It's even a chore to title my blog posts sometimes! 
I hope everyone is having a great week. Mine is going great. I managed to find the perfect pair of white linen capris for my trip (among other things) And the best thing was, when I got to the checkout counter
I found out they were 1/2 off! So I got another pair. 

We should be announcing the winner by Friday so please check back.
Ok...take care!

Some changes...

Change is Good

After working on a few watercolors and the black and white portrait, I had a need to revisit these paintings
with a fresh approach. I'm not sure if you can tell what changes I made but I feel like they both needed more expression. I don't like for my paintings to get too tight and felt like a little loosening up would help. Sometimes it really helps to step away and to work on something completely different to get a different perspective to my work. I'm happy with the changes, I hope you are too:)

Enchanted Forest

Here's another new watercolor I just listed on Etsy. She was inspired by all the 
Fairytale shows and movies
coming out. Who doesn't love a good fairytale!

New Watercolors

With Spring comes new and fresh ideas. I've dug out my watercolors and am working on a new 
series of refreshing floral watercolors. 
I guess they could be considered illustrations. I also used
some acrylics, pen, and pencil in some of them, so...they could also be considered mixed media.
Two more will be posted soon. 
I'm not sure how long I will continue these...maybe just through Spring. 
It's been forever since I've done watercolors. Quite a change from the preparation and smells that oils possess. While I still love oils, these feels crisp and fresh, kind of like the weather outside today.
More vintage ladies, interiors, and landscapes to come. I'm thinking of maybe doing 
another Venice, or maybe a Parisian landscape!

Roses Shells and Sun...





The perfect combo. I love all these things and wish this really was my view.  Unfortunately it's far from it. I have a beautiful view from my home but it's been snowing and raining for about a week. The sun finally came out so I could paint this one with the beautiful light from the sun. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Roses, lemons, and peonies




These are my latest creations. They are both 6x6 inch with deep sides that are 
painted all the way around. 


I like how they stand on their own...no framing needed:)
