PreWedding Prepping…

We are in the homestretch for our daughter’s wedding festivities! That’s hard to believe! If you were a fly on the wall around here you would have witness serious glitter flying, a whole lot of painting, cutting, trimming, ribboning, and sequins sprinkled across the floor. SO. MUCH. FUN! Thank goodness we can text, face time and send photos to each other in an instant. LOTS of that going on!

The bride has forbidden me to share any photos whatsoever. Several folks have asked to see the preplanning and dresses, and such…but I’m sworn to secrecy and need to respect her wishes.

I can’t wait to share pix and invite you to celebrate with our family. Even though it’s thru the internet.:)Soon!

I am so excited to see your creations!

Let’s Go Together

I have shown pix of this piece recently, and want to share the finished piece. The color drenched canvas is off to it’s owner now, and I miss it! It’s the largest piece I have done to date.



This piece will be the focal point in the cutest little girl’s bedroom. How fun is that? She has the sweetest amount of spark and joy in her eyes….I loved meeting her and her family earlier this year.  Her bigger sis is also in the painting, along with their ragdoll kitties.



( Let’s Go Together, 36×48″ )

Here are a close up of time flying (because it does) and the little deer, who symbolizes the sweet girl’s baby brother. Where ever they are headed, he wants to go with them.

Studying Under the Masters Starts Monday!

The paints been flying in my studio this week! I’ve been prepping for Studying Under the Masters-Portraits! I’m really excited to be a part of this online Course. It’s 6 week Course and each of the 6 instructors will be presenting a Master Artist and studying under them.

These are the talented Artists I will be joining in this Course:

September 30th- Jeanne Oliver
October 6th- Teresa McFayden
October 13th- Gillian Lee Smith
October 20th- Robin Fingher
October 27th- Cori Dantini
November 3rd- Jane Davenport


I chose to study under Pablo Picasso. That’s a very tall order isn’t it? Go big or go home…that’s my life motto! Absolutely.

I have always been enamoured by so many of Picasso’s styles and this past month I have been experimenting and studying and learning so much more than I already knew. I have gathered and created a lot of techniques (both his and mine) to share for this exciting Course. I’m sure the other Artist’s have too!


This Course takes place in all the Artist’s and Master’s studios really, but we all come together and share in Jeanne Oliver’s dedicated creative Ning site. It’s a glorious place to be. There will be a lot of interaction between the Artists and students…which I love.
