Title or Location: A bridge to cross
My husband saw a video on Instagram of someone using marbles in ink rolling around on a paper. There was an empty frame on top to keep marbles in. I tried it and loved the results. It is random lines that make different designs. This one I used a black brush pen to add more darks in spaces. It really made the paper pop!

Title or Location: Foot Steps
Have wanted to paint for many years and with retirement started with Oil Paint in April 2023. I wanted to try Acrylics for its fast drying time. This is my Fourth Acrylic painting. I want to emphasize the three primary colors when I can as they are foundational colors. I?m inspired by the beauty of nature and strive to capture its amazing scenes that play out before us day by day.

Title or Location: Live Wedding Painting
Back in 2016 I began getting requests to do live wedding paintings. I paint the wedding as I see it (per the couple's request) and whether it's the first dance, first kiss, saying the vows, walking down the aisle, etc., I paint it on scene in 4-6 hours, take it home and clean it up, and deliver it usually (usually is the operative word) within 10-14 days.

This painting was inspired by a picture one of my clients had taken when she was sitting on the James River. I used acrylic paint with a resin glaze over it including stones and wood in it so you could feel the textures of the outside .

Title or Location: Lighting of the Cressets
If you are a local or even a visitor in the late fall, you know this street scene in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. One of my favorite times of the year is to be there in person when they light these burning baskets of wood to illuminate the night on Duke of Gloucester Street. I can?t image what it was like in the not-too-distant past, before street lights and electricity were the norm! Just being there during the late fall season takes me to a simpler time in history. 12" x 9", This is pain

This old farmyard barn is located to the North of Tideswell in a hamlet called Wheston. There are miles of old stone walls, wild flower borders where I loved the contrast between the grasses and flowers. Birds and bees were going about their busy day and managed to capture the early Summer. by Jane Walsh House and property portraits

Title or Location: "Wine festival in Tuscany , Italy " was painted in Blue Ash, Ohio
As a amateur Painter, I started this painting with just a plain country side scene with some distant mountains. But then I got creative and added a Tuscany Villa. I kept at it , as my creativity kicked in and I began adding characters from the 1600's. My addition of Characters became a real challenge, as I had few references to Tuscany residents of the 16th century. Then I began adding the activities , such as a Monk bring in the wine, and the artist, There are two workers putting a cor
