Cup Of Flower




Transparent Watercolor 24" x 18"



I wanted to paint something challenging for me which has always been clear glass and shiny metal! I have seen many many beautiful crystal, hand blown, colored glass paintings so I thought I'd try making Pyrex just as pretty! It was a nice change from the portraits I've been doing and the textured rock and ceramics. I think I'll do some more cause it's always nice to stretch your wings and step out of your comfort zone every once in a while!

Holding On To Traditions 2



Transparent Watercolor 20" x 14"
Have you ever been around someone who just emanates magic? I am constantly amazed at this Pomo Elder's presence and connection with the creator. Again I am grateful to her for allowing me to paint her portrait. I have to say that the photo shoots are a hoot, we are constantly giggling and trying to be "serious", never sure if she's giggling with me or at me, probably both!
