FALL SPLENDOR

FALL SPLENDOR
Watercolor - 11x14

I think fall is my favorite season. I love all of the summer activities here at the lake. Boating, swimming, water skiing. BBQs and long days. But, I am always ready when the leaves start falling and the air starts to feel crisp and cool. Pumpkins, mums, apple picking, cider and football. What could be better!

SPRING TREASURES & Improving

SPRING TREASURES
Watercolor - 11x14

Improving our art and discovering your own personal style takes time and dedication. And lots of paintings. The more you create, the more progress you will make. Try to work everyday, even if it is just a few minutes. Someone once said that you need to paint a hundred paintings to get good at it so you might as well get started!

A PLACE TO BELONG - Acrylic Collage on Canvas

A PLACE TO BELONG
Acrylic Collage on Canvas - 12x12x1 inch

Occasionally, I like to switch things up a bit and take a break from my watercolors. For A Place To Belong I collaged different papers with images on to a gallery wrapped canvas. I used acrylic paint to tie the elements together and enhance the texture of the images. I used images of garden, flowers, windows, checks and text to create a sense of home. A Place to Belong!
