Last Post Here

     This will probably be one of my last posts on this site. Thanks, in very large part, to the help of my step-daughter and her husband, I have a new home at and you can go directly to today's art blog here:
     We just spent a week visiting in Vegas and traveling to Pacific Beach for the weekend where we were photo bombed by our waitress. That's me in the bottom right corner, my daughter Louisa behind me, my husband Henry, the waitress, Alonzo my son-in-law and and doing the selfie honors with the camera is my step-daughter Ashley, who made our visit crazy-amazing and memorable!
     I took many photos on the trip that I plan to turn into artwork, so if you're interested in seeing them, click on over to the new place and follow me. Thanks!

I've been working on illustrations for the four seasons and here's how WINTER is progressing. I started it in acrylics (below)

and that is where I will (before the end of the month) finish it. I like the more painterly look of the original but I turned to my digital paint program to work out some of the details.

Happy New Year 2017!

     I love the fresh start of a new year. I like to sit and write down my accomplishments for the previous year and to list my goals for the coming one. I'm going to be setting up a website for myself where my blog and my portfolio can be seen in the same place and hopefully set up a small online store. This image may just become a card that you can purchase to wish your friends a happy 2018! 
     One of my goals is to post every Wednesday, so feel free to comment your displeasure if I fail at this. It will help keep me on my toes! Haha! 
     I would like to wish you all a safe New Year's Eve, and a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2017!

Happy Halloween!

This is my favorite page from my "Serenity" story. This shows Serenity's mama teaching her how to be an effective Halloween witch. Serenity has her own ideas.
