Charlotte Living Magazine


"Rainbow Forest" 24 x 20

Check out the latest issue of Charlotte Living Magazine, Sept./Oct. issue!  My painting "Rainbow Forest" is featured on page 37 in the Local Palette section!  This is the issue that will be circulated to all the hotels and other venues during the DNC here in Charlotte next week.  Let's hope the Democrats want to buy some art!  This particular piece will be available beginning Sept. 1st at Alexander Scott Interiors.

Hot off the Easel......8/21!

"Thinking Tree"
24 x 24

Some of my fellow artists have challenged me to create a painting with NO PURPLE in it!  As you can guess, purple is one of my favorite colors and somehow I end up (sometimes unconsciously) working it into every painting.  So.........look above, do you see any purple?  Only beautiful, tranquil teals and golds.....not an ounce of purple.  But don't worry for those who love purple as much as I do, it will certainly rear it's lovely head again soon.  Have a great day!

Just off the Easel.......

"In The Distance"
9 x 12

For me, these are very neutral colors!  What do you see through the trees?  Water, mountains, more trees?  There's no right or wrong answer, it's up to you.  This is also one of the smaller pieces I've worked on lately...........

Just Off The Easel!

24" x 30"
This is one of those paintings that started out entirely different in my head, but just took it's own direction along the way.  My favorite part is the top left quarter.  As I started filling in color and branches,  that section started reminding me of a stained glass window, and I loved it, so I left it!

That's an awful big canvas!

This big ole canvas has been sitting in the corner of my studio for at least six months now, just begging me to do something with it!  I'll have to admit it's a little bit intimidating at 48x48, so far one of the largest I have attempted to paint on.  Obviously I had grand dreams when I bought this one!  In any case, I have primed it this lovely color of Robbin's egg stay tuned to see what else I decide to do with it!

Well, here it is, my first Blog post!  I will admit I am a little nervous about the whole "blogging" thing. Although I have not mastered Twitter, I do have a pretty good grip on Facebook, so hopefully I can handle this new piece added to my "social media" repertoire.  I will still be publishing a newsletter every month or so, but here is where I will post brand new works, right off the easel, and hopefully other information you will find interesting as I continue on this journey as an ARTIST!
