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.
This is the painting I have been working on in my adult class. We all started with a portrait originally painted by Bouguereau and then added our own take on it. I love to paint the Oklahoma sky so I put my little girl in a prairie dress and sweater and put her in an Osage landscape w a beautiful sky. I just posted this to ebay, both in my ebay gallery and on auction through my ebay gallery. To visit the gallery, click here
