I'm most honored!

I have been honored twice today!   I have been featured in an article in the Dallas Examiner. I hope you'll take a moment to read it!   The article speaks of art as a way of life and a way of communication.   It gives great perspective to art and life; finding balance while still continuing to create and explore!   

Also, a fellow artist who I've gotten to "know" from a distance through blogging has been kind enough to write about my work on her blog.  Please visit Julia's blog, read her comments and take a look at her inspiring work as well! 

Thank you!  I'm quite honored!

Ready to frame 

Please email me for more information on this painting

This is one of my favorites!   I love the abstract qualities found when botanical subjects are
magnified.  This is created from a photo I took of  canna leaves just opening.
The shadows and color were spectacular!

While busy with family this week, I'm posting a few reruns of some of my past favorites!  
 This one stands out to me because of its very unusual point of view, and 
of course its interesting colors!  

It was a lot of fun to do!
