SOLD - Golden Pastures - 8 x 10"


Although I don't consider myself a landscape artist, I do occasionally enjoy painting country scenes such as this one. I live in somewhat of a 'valley", so I'm surrounded by huge rolling hills. During one of my drives through the countryside last Fall, I came across this beautiful cow just standing there, staring at me! I thought she would make the perfect subject for a painting... I just loved the way she was standing there, light beaming on her, seeing the farms in the faraway background.

SOLD - Egg and Toast - 8 x 10"


My daily breakfast consists of exactly this: one fried egg on a slice of whole wheat toast. Even with this whole cholesterol-lowering craze, I simply cannot function without my daily egg. And despite this, my doctor tells me that my digits are well below what they consider to be "average"... so I must be doing something right!

I unfortunately came across a "bad egg" one day... one that had been sitting in my fridge for a bit longer than I'd like to. So instead of eating it, which probably would NOT have been a good idea, I cooked it and used it as the subject of a painting!

Swan Reflections - 10 x 14"

Back when I lived in Boston, a friend of mine came to visit me and we spent the entire day "being tourists". One of our stops was, of course, the Swan Pond. These elegant creatures were just begging to be photographed! I don't paint animals very often, but while looking through my stack of photos for inspiration, I came across this one and thought it would make the perfect subject for a painting.

This painting can be purchased through my Etsy shop.
