The Peninsula

This painting I sold at First Saturday Arts Market, January. This series has been selling most often the first time out to a market. Its detail is not readily apparent by photograph, its subtleties, its nuances and complexities. One of my favourite elements to show people is how the light interacts with these paintings, the … Continue reading

Make a life you love

I’ve taken about ten steps back from social media, recently, with the thought of making available more time to paint. Two and a half years ago, I went back to school for my real estate license. I sold a few houses. I gave away about thirty paintings, then I sold a painting. Then, I sold … Continue reading

Wide Ocean

I was standing at the edge of the ocean, just the other night. But it might as well be tonight, that is how vivid of a memory it is that it is still with me .. has become a part of who I am. There are several experiences within the natural world that have lingered … Continue reading

Enter a Calm Space and Continue On

I wrote my column this evening, for The Lufkin News, for the first time in about six weeks. It is good to get a new start there. Since falling on my head, it has taken some time to get up and running, again. Not that I am running. But I am up. I am more … Continue reading

Thanks for Being Along for the Experience

I’m tired and it’s the end of the year. I’m feeling contemplative and reflective. I’m feeling quiet, hardly chatty at all. But I have been meaning to write and tell you that my art is now represented by the lovely gallery, Affaire d’art, on Galveston Island. The owners, Kent and Sharis DeJaynes, have welcomed me … Continue reading

FiNd WhAt YoU lOvE

There is nothing better, not right now, not for me, than positive thinking. I am fascinated with it. Different than arranging my thoughts to recreate a better present. Just focusing differently on what life has┬áto offer. Not rehashing the same old stuff. Bringing to mind the pleasant, the powerful, the lovely. That’s what I am … Continue reading

Create It from the Inside Out

I am painting, again, after taking two months away. The two months went by rather fast and, sometime into it, I began to consider that maybe my painting days were behind me. There are times when we take a break from things in life. It can be good for us and, I believe, most of … Continue reading

What was Once Familiar to You

Some would argue you end up at the right place at the right time. I am not going to argue but, if I were, I would say about the same except sometimes such bad stuff happens I cannot reconcile that anyone could be in the right place in, for example, a horrific moment. But that … Continue reading

Go Where You Want to Go

One time, I was at a black sand beach in California. It was waaay in the northern part. It was north of Eureka, north of Trinidad, south of Crescent City. Crescent City was foggy and cold, that day. The perfect day to be at the beach. Anytime works for me, I’m a beach girl. And … Continue reading

Beach House Flowers

Beach House Flowers, that’s the mood I’m in. Minimalism. Simplicity. I was out at some tennis courts, last night, underneath the lights. I didn’t even have a racquet with me, just stepped out of the car to go walk around. The expanse and the simplicity gave way to feelings of serenity. I love open spaces, … Continue reading
