I do love still lifes

Hello! I painted this a few days ago from a set up.  Roses are hard and I do not paint them often, I wanted to be painterly and yet feel like roses.  This is oil on a 8" X 10" linen panel.  I will be back outside painting soon, I'm excited and ready. 

 Did I tell you I am attending a Mark Boedges workshop in Vermont the end of May, it is a five person intensive workshop.  Google him, he's just amazing. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Pottery Barn

Hello! I am so excited to be doing a "pop up shop" at the Pottery Barn in Kenwood Mall this Saturday from 10-3.  I love that they are supporting the arts and allowing different artists to set up and sell at their store.  If you live in the Cincinnati area please stop by and say hello Saturday.

Brush & Palette Show

Hi!  I am a member of a group called the Brush & Palette painters.  The group has been together 50 years and I have been a member for about three years. It's a wonderful group of women and I am proud to be a member.  Each year we have a show for the whole month of March at the Cincinnati Womens art club in Mariemont. Please join us if you live in the Cincinnati area, our opening is wonderful, lots of great food and wine.  I will have five larger pieces in the show and a "tiny treasure" .  Also I will be there sitting the show on the 18th from 1-4 so come by and visit me then.  That is my painting of the barn and truck, proud to be included on the invitation.

Hi, recently I was contacted by Adam Ziemba from NoblePortraits.com.  He found me by way of my blog and was interested in interviewing me.  Below is the link to the interview and check out his website while you are there.  Have a great day!

Hi, this is a commission that I just finished, always such a relief when you get that final okey dokey from the client, she loves it.  I do not paint a lot of portraits but this little girl is so beautiful it was a pleasure to paint.  This is oil on a 8" X 10" canvas. 

This Saturday I will be at Northminster Fine Art show from 10-3, if you live in the Cincinnati area you should come by, great show, great art and great food.  Compton Rd. In Forest Park at Northminster Presbyterian.

Tiny Ones

Hi there, I frequently paint these little 4" X 4" paintings,  it's a good thing to keep me busy when I don't have anything else going on.  They sell well at my shows, I think everyone has room for a little painting somewhere.  The wren is framed in a custom frame from Franken Frame, I just love dealing with them.

Nice to see you!

Updated version

Hi! I reworked the painting I posted last and thought I would share the new version with you.  I added a lot of texture in the grass and cleaned up the sky.  Hopefully I improved it, sometimes you don't. I heard a great quote last night from Susan Carlin "why paint just enough when you can paint too much". Don't you love it? Lol  really I think I am happy with it and thank you for visiting me, 

Have a wonderful day!

I am still around

Hi Friends, I am so sorry I haven't been posting just lately.  I have been very busy with shows, the holidays and I am working on a commission.  This one may need a little tweaking but I wanted to post something to show I have been working.  This is a 16" X 20" stretched canvas and will probably hang in a show I have the month of March.  Working on a portrait of a beautiful little girl and her dog, I will share that soon. I hope everyone is staying warm.  Spring is right around the corner,  well maybe not, lol.  Hugs
