Artists Statement

I paint as often and as much as I can. I take classes when I can afford it, but the money usually goes to buy more art supplies. This blog is to share the results with you! I am a Work in Progress.

Well, I finally figured out how to upload a picture to the blog. However, I haven't figured out how to rotate the image. So there are two less than I intended. I had previously rotated and saved them, but that was undone when they up loaded to the blog page. I'm still checking the help pages.

Enough whining! The first image is a watercolor of Kilimanjaro for my nephew Chris, because he climbed it a couple of years ago.

The next one is a watercolor called Remembrance. It's a statue in a cemetery in the area.

The last one is an acrylic. I had just found "unbleached Titanium" and was fascinated by it's sort of parchment color. I also follow fellow blogger Rookie Painter, and this is the current challenge. It was perfect for the new paint!

Okey Dokey, I may get into this blogging thing yet. If only once a month. I have to paint now or I'll go into withdrawal!


  1. Can't wait to see more. The birds are so delicate, the flower composition is beautiful, the giraffes just under the clouds are spectacular and the breakfast face is very funny. The landscape really has nice light. Welcome to blogging and sharing artwork!

  2. Thanks for your lovely comments, it's really helpful and encouraging to hear! I finally uploaded a bunch more. Some friends from my old office bugged me about it today and got me going. It's a real mixed bag of work, new and older. thanks again and drop by any time as I learn more about this!
