Giant Original Acrylic Paintings for Outdoor Areas!

Hello All,

Many of you know that I have "outdoor art prints", printed on aluminum with UV inks. Thanks to Phoenix Home & Garden Magazine for featuring them in the May, 2015 issue!

Recently, I completed these three huge paintings, on cement board, for a client. The center one is 4'x8', and the pieces on either side are 3'x5'.   They will be installed on an exterior wall, and framed o ut, to cover a large expanse of stucco.

In October, I will photograph them installed, to share how cool they look!!

Four More Weeks!

Hello All,

How the winter has flown!

There are only four more weeks left in our 10 week Celebration of Fine Art Show.
It has been great, so far, and we have met so many wonderful people!

Come see us, if you are able, before March 29th.

Here is my most recent painting, titled, Evening Elegance, which is 48x36. It is typical of my closeup view of a night blooming cereus flower. This piece has found a great home in Paradise Valley!

I am working now, on a new purple agave...come see it, in progress!

Pictured below is one of my favorite Valentines, Scarlett Zink. She is a budding artist!!

Please know, that any paint she puts on that canvas is subject to "over-painting" by her Grandmother...

Happy Valentine's Day to you all, and we look forward to seeing you soon!!

From the Mouths of Babes....

Hello All,

I've had the joy of painting with my oldest granddaughter, Lily, who always wants to paint with me!
Whenever we get together, she always asks when we can paint.

Recently, when we painted over the Holidays, she remarked, "Grammy, you are pretty good at painting flowers!"

She is already 3 1/2  years old...Now we have Scarlett, who is 16 months, and Hanna, who is 10 months, to teach how to paint! What fun awaits me, teaching these little ones the joy of painting!!

Happy New Year!!

Hello All,

Happy 2015  to you all!!
Gosh, it has been so long since I posted. My apologies...a lot has happened.

Soon after Thanksgiving and during the Hidden in the Hills Studio Tour, I lost my Mum, Dorothy.
She lived a long, (92 years old), full, life. When I got the call from my brother, I said to Jon, albeit tearfully, "We sure had a good time!! " That we did.

Although I take credit for teaching her to paint about 30 years ago, (when she was about my age, :), she was always supportive of my pursuit of majoring in Art, and encouraged my Dad, who was not quite so sure, to allow me to do so. Dad insisted that I minor in Education, which was a very practical approach. I did both, and am happy today to have taken their advice, not that that was not an option in 1966 in my house, back in RI!!

Thank you all for your continued support and interest in my work!

The 25th Celebration of Fine Art opens January 17th...daily 10am to 6pm, through March 29th, at the Hayden Exit #35, of the 101 Freeway, in Scottsdale, Arizona...I am in my usual place, back in the southeast corner, (that is a good thing!) of our HUGE 50,000 sq ft tent! Come visit!!
