Welcome to my art blog where I post recent photos of my work and journal about my life as an artist. Although I spent my early childhood in the Catskill Mountains or New York, I now live and work in Tulsa Oklahoma. It is from my early life in the mountains that I developed a love of the natural world which now includes vast prairies and endless skies. My goal is to see and respond to the beauty that I find around me with a paint brush, paint and canvas.
Several weeks ago we had friends over for dinner. My friend, Louise went outside w my husband to tour the garden. It was chilly and I lent her a wrap. Her husband ( with the eye of an artist ) looked out the window and suggested that I take a picture of them as the red wrap on Louise looked so pretty against the background of green in the garden. I agreed and took several photos. this one ended up in a painting that I demonstrated to my class. I changed her location and put her in a hilltop prairie. This painting is for sale today in my ebay auction along with about 50 other paintings that I am adding to the auction today. To bid on this one and view my other auction items, click here
