Last year...


Add ImageThis painting named "A Golden Year" is so named because of how yellow the field happened to look the day I was there. Next year, on or around the same day, it will look totally different. The name also talks about my year in general. I've really enjoyed teaching my oil painting classes, I've grown so much as an artist thru school and pushing my own boundaries, and my personal life is quite happy right now. I'm not one of those artists who does her best work when she's under duress. I like it when things are happy....the skies are blue...the birds are singing...

  5. A nod sent your way. (Thanks for showing up at my blog ... your presence is appreciated.) Do you only work in oil? Not knocking it, just opening a dialogue ... if that's alright?

  6. I work almost exclusively in oils right now, but I have works done in watercolor/acrylic/pencil too. I started out making art dolls and found that painting seems to be my thing. I just can't stop!!!
