LOOKING AHEAD



LOOKING AHEAD- 4"x4" acrylic on gessoboard

Creating a piece of art is not always an easy experience. In fact, more often than not, it is a personal struggle to translate a vision into reality. There are numerous occasions where I would like to walk away from a painting and say no more. I simply cannot. I am always drawn back, always "Looking Ahead" to what I know is attainable if only I will persevere.  Secure this piece for your collection.

FEATHERS



FEATHERS- 4x4 inches acrylic on gessoboard
Sometimes an idea needs to simmer. I had started a painting based on this model almost a month ago and was not pleased with it's composition or coloring, SO I gessoed over it and painted something else. However I did not forget about it. I simply put it on my minds back burner to simmer. All of a sudden I knew! My model is a young woman full of life, so much so, that only one of her eyes needs to be revealed in order for the viewer to join in her celebration of everyday moments such as "Feathers".  Secure "Feathers" for your collection!

ADORNMENT



ADORNMENT  4"x4" acrylic on gessoboard

I admit it- I love earrings! I always have. Earrings are something that add attractiveness. Most everyone wants to be attractive. As much as I love earrings though, I know that there are far more important things that make people attractive. Kindness, gentleness, sympathy, and love just to name a few. As Audrey Hepburn said "The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries or the way she combs her hair." "Adornment" is so much more!

Adults can still enjoy being creative. All you have to do is let yourself dream. Is "Pixie" a child or a fairy- that is for you to decide!  Secure 'Pixie" for your collection.

HIDDEN



HIDDEN- 4"x4" acrylic on canvas board

I love mysteries! Trixie Belden was my absolute favorite series as a young person. After that, it was Agatha Christie's Books. Lot's of us want to be kept in suspense. We want to let our imagination run wild and dream up our own stories. Not too many details, just a hint. Everything doesn't have to be revealed all at once. In fact, it is more fun when some things are kept "Hidden."

BRAIDED



Braided-  4"x4" acrylic on canvas board

I am in the season of life where I have become an embarrassment to my teenager. Apparently, it doesn't take much. I thought a weekend swim meet was the perfect place to find models and snap reference photos for future paintings. He did not. He refused to acknowledge me. Despite his disgust, I enjoyed meeting new people and gathering great resources so that I could create pieces like "Braided".   Secure "Braided" for your collection!
