Break Through -- Sold




What a wet rainy day at Callaway Gardens, then suddenly the light breaks through the clouds and falls through the tress…

Well, actually the sun never did come out that day but that is the joy of being a painter, you can put the sun where ever you want it!!!!

Headin' Home -- Sold



This is a wonderful spot between my house and my Folks that I love to Paint. It reminds me how fortunate I am to have such a beautiful a drive on my way home! I could stop and paint some where every time I make the trip and it would take me years to paint it all.

Measure Up







For me growing as an artist is a never ending battle between self-confidence and self-criticism. In my efforts to “Measure Up” to my own expectations, about the time I gain confidence in my skills, I see something that makes me raise the bar!

I hope that never changes, the joy I feel every time I learn something new or find a way to improve a painting  is such a trill, I can hardly wait to start the next!

Breakfast Club


Click Here to Purchase


Just before my Daughter graduated from Berry College, we met for Breakfast at Honeymoon Bakery, one of her favorite perks of being at Berry!!!  This painting is my way to celebrate those special moments of getting to be a Mom!

It’s funny that in some ways we can be total opposites yet for the most part we are so much alike there is no doubt we were cut from the same mold.

The same holds true for my Mom and I, I could not think of a better way to Say “Happy Mother’s day”  because just thinking about that day is all I need to realize what a lucky Mom I am!!!!

Callaway Gardens Paint Out -- Sold

Hangin' Round


I thought this an appropriate painting to get back to posting with, though I have been doing anything but Hangin’ Around. In the Last few weeks I have participated in three paint outs and one workshop all while trying to buy a house. I will try and update you on all the fun in the coming post.

I have recently joined Daily Paint Works and will be participating in their on line Actions and you can get more info on that by clicking on the DPW Widget on the right side of my Blog.
