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.
I am very fortunate to have access to a beautiful log cabin in the woods, next to a beautiful clear, cool river. I recently went there with my mom, husband and kids and an assortment of extended family. There is nothing more relaxing than floating on a raft down a stream. So I got to spend the days under the shade of tall cottonwood trees while painting, and getting to cool off in the stream and float when taking breaks. Ahhhhh.... Oh, did I mention that it has been over 100 degrees for over 22 days now w no end in sight? All the more reason to head for the creek. This painting is on auction this week in my ebay store. You can place your bid here and enter into my ebay gallery as well.
