Enduring Love, Cross with a dove at sunrise


"Enduring Love"

Created this painting a few years ago.  It is now available in cards and prints!

 This is surrealism. Lots of symbolism too. The sunrise represents the new covenant,  and the crown of thorns is for the suffering He bore for us to find healing and eternal life. The dove is for the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ, who lives in us when we commit to living for him.  (Which is not the same as being religious,  but living day to day as He leads us, by his strength and power to overcome the hardships we all face.)

Tea Time, teapot still life study

"Tea Time"

Painted this in 2003, my senior year at Florida Atlantic University. 
Loved all the movement in the folds of the fabric, and the cast shadows on the pot. This has to be the hardest still life study that I have ever done!

Bushes and Beaches, Plein air painting, seascape with sand dunes


"Bushes and Beaches"

Got to do a paint-out a couple of weeks ago! Even though it was extremely hot that morning, it was by far the best plein air (on location) painting  I have done in a long time.  Thank goodness for the little pavilion we had for shade....

Rise and Shine, dairy cows and deer


"Rise and Shine"

So much symbolism here. It was January, a new year, a new day. Bright sunlight is breaking through the cool morning shadows, like a new start to putting the past in the past and focusing on the present. It is about overcoming depression and finding joy again.

I used to sing a song to my boys to wake them up that gave me the title for this painting: Rise and Shine and give God the Glory, Glory...

Big Lake Sunset, knife landscape painting


"Big Lake Sunset"

This is an older painting. I did it alla prima, or all at once, it is of Lake Okeechobee.  I truly love the texture and color that is unique to knife paintings.  Some of my students are doing palette knife beach scenes right now, so I wanted to post this one in response to what we are doing in class.

Forsaking All Others, pointillism of a red rose


"Forsaking All Others"
18" x 24"
ink, pointillism

This drawing won Best of Show in my second year in college.  I just made it available in print.  It is made up of hundreds of tiny dots.  Shadows are created by placing the dots closer and overlapping them at times.  Highlights are made by scattering the dots farther apart. Very intricate and detailed work.

Butterfly Garden, plein air painting

"Butterfly Garden"
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on hardboard


Got to do the last plein air (out doors on location) paint-out with Lori McNamara until fall.  It was muggy and hot and very hard to get inspired at first. But once I got going I really enjoyed it.  This is at the Oxbow Eco-center in Fort Pierce. Had a little girl watch off and on, and then she got so close I wanted to give her the brush!  She loved it and told me what a good job I was doing.  Too cute!

Added the cardinal (which I saw flying around), and the butterflies (which were not flying around) after I got home. I couldn't paint the butterfly garden and not add butterflies!

Winter Marsh, Lake, egrets


"Winter Marsh"
9 x 12 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
$675.00

This painting is simple, but effective. I captured the feeling I was after: cooler weather and the fleeting moment of birds rushing off out of sight.  I love working in this impressionistic style too. This is an older painting that I have just made available in print.
