Artist Studio Tour 2016

What a wonderful weekend.  We had well over 200 visitors to our studio/gallery.  It was so wonderful to get to talk with past purchasers and past and future students, meet young artists, art lovers and friends.  Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition  did an excellent job finding volunteers to help w ticket sales and marketing and just making sure everything was a success.  Thanks so much to all who made the weekend possible.  It is always a time for people to learn and get inspired.... at least it always has been for me as one who, in the past, got to visit multiple studios and learn many different ways in which artists work and find their inspiration. It is a real gift to the creative community.  Thanks, OVAC!

Lilacs and Cherry Blossoms

This is the first year I have ever painted my very favorite smelling flowers.  They remind me of my childhood in upstate NY where lilac bushes were more like lilac trees, or maybe it was because I was so small that they seemed that big.  I had a little table and kid size chairs under our lilac tree where I had tea parties, smelling the sweet scent of lilacs the whole time.  This painting is a little 8x10 on stretched canvas.  It is in my ebay gallery auction this week.  CLICK HERE to visit it in my Gallery where you will have the option to bid or see other paintings in my gallery.
