This painting is a recent creation that I made while attending a watercolor workshop. The wildflowers were painted by utilizing a technique that creates a layered look. The flowers are white (attempting to create a negative look), while the leaves, and other foliage are painted various colors to achieve this effect.

I was working with trying to capture the beauty of nature, that I witnessed while taking a walk with my family during a trip to Laguna Beach in California. We came upon a cove with colorful sand and shells that I tried to recreate in my own way, as a memento of my time spent there.

This is the largest abstract painting that I have attempted to do. I created an aesthetic feeling by blending water colors in an abstract manner from a muted pastel pallet.

This painting was created in honor of my grandmother and her roses that she use to grow. When I was a little girl I used to walk across the field, about 1/2 a mile to visit her and she always had huge rose bushes, which I loved to smell.

I have always been in awe of the water lily flower and the reflections that they create while glistening in the water. I have taken numerous photos at various locations throughout the country. However, this specific painting is inspired by a set of waterlilies that I captured on film while visiting an arboretum.

As a child growing up on a farm, my family and I raised a wide variety of waterfowls and rare breed chickens. The Hen and chicks (pictured here) are brown leghorns, which I raised as a teenager. This evokes special memories for me. 16×20

This was a still life I set up shortly before we put an addition built onto our home. Only on a very sunny day, at certain time, the sun would shine through my “special window” casting shadows with incredible darkness and intensity. Since I lost the window, due to construction changes on our house, I have tried to duplicate this shadow effect. However, I have been unsuccessful. That moment in time is lost, but now it is forever captured in this painting!

This Amaryllis flower was painted in the middle of a winter season. The plant was in full bloom. I attempted to capture it’s beauty, and added the triangle to give the painting depth and perspective. It was accepted in a juried art show and received a merit ribbon as well. 16×20.
