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.

Title or Location: Down By The River
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

Title or Location: The Crow and the Moon Pool
In this piece, a solitary crow perches elegantly on the edge of a moonlit pool, its feathers glistening with an ethereal sheen. The scene is set within the hauntingly beautiful ruins of an ancient courtyard, where ivy-clad arches and weathered stone walls whisper tales of forgotten times. The moon, full and luminous, casts a silvery glow across the serene water, creating an almost magical reflection that seems to merge the boundaries between reality and fantasy. Flickering torches line the passa
