"Three Little Pears" - SOLD

We're coming up on apple and pear season shortly.  I've already started to delve into recipes.  So in honor of the wonderfully delicious concoctions that shall spring forth, I thought I would honor the humble pear.  Bon appetit!

"Leaps of Joy" - SOLD


This piece is commissioned by Jenny Maginnes whom I have had the great pleasure of painting for a few years ago.  She also graciously allowed me the courtesy of using a photo I loved the minute I saw it, even named it straightaway, of the girls fishing, "Fisher Girls".

Jenny tells me she was able to  quickly capture this shot of the girls leaping off of the lifeguard stand which apparently is unique to their North Carolina beach and it became an integral part of the painting.  Talk about being in the right place at the right time to capture this rare mid-air shot.  Remarkable!

'Koi' - SOLD

FRAMED, ready to hang art.

There's something about water! Whether a water feature, a lily pond, a stream, a lake, the ocean, even a small fountain is so soothing and relaxing. It's an excellent place to go into what I like to call 'a no-mind state'. Love to go to that place when I'm painting. Everyone has a different name for it of course. Attempts to quiet our minds is not easy task to attain these days. Here's wishing this sweet little Koi peaking out from the pond helps refresh you!

'Pt. Loma Lighthouse' - SOLD

Cabrillo National Monument and Point Loma Lighthouse in San Diego is an incredible place to visit. There are the most amazing tide pools, which even the children, seem to respect.  After all, what curious little one doesn't appreciate awesome sea creatures...

The colors are phenomenal when the sun highlights the prisms on the marine life found there.  Just be sure to check the tide schedule so you don't miss out!  We also bring little picnic lunches and sit on a bench overlooking it.  Now that's what I call living the good life!
