Choosing to be a Couple

15 x 10" original oil

Two little pansies represent two people who love each other and have chosen to be a couple. I think it's interesting that even after one marries, it's still a conscious decision to be a couple.

8 1/2 x 9 1/2" original  oil

I hope the person that buys this piece is someone who has followed their inspiration in life. I got the idea for this title because of the front tulip that was lit like it had an idea, like it was inspired. 

I have so many shows coming up. I am finishing new work all the time, not all of it makes it to this blog, but it does end up on  my website. Click here to visit my website.

5 x 7" original oil

Let's all pretend we have our feet in the still-warm sand as the sun has just set as we take a deep breath of fresh, salty air. 

I have a little event in Salt Lake City tonight with my art (gallery stroll and live painting at Illume Gallery) and thanks to my good friend Heidikins, I've been made aware that the cherry blossoms on Capitol Hill are ready for their close-up. Looks like a field trip to SLC today with  my camera! 

Happy Weekend.

10 x 15" original oil

Sun, color, sugar and candy petals. Spring is coming. 

When I was little, my family listened to music all the time and I have vivid memories of one album in particular that played oldies. The song "Lollipop" by the Chordettes is one of those songs written in the soundtrack of my childhood mind. If you haven't heard it yet, here's a link to see the Chordettes singing it on Youtube - I dare you not to grin as you listen.

Be Kind to Yourself

5 x 7" original oil

I painted this on a day that was just...not going well. We've all had "those days." I put my emotion into this little seascape and relished the deep, dark water, but found escape in the bright light. Everything is going to be OK.
