Thank you for visiting my painting-a-day blog. I am a professional writer and fine artist, with paintings hanging in private collections throughout the United States including New York, Los Angeles, the San Francisco / Bay Area of California, Oregon, Colorado, North Carolina, and Florida.
I work in watercolor, oil, pencil, and colored pencil. Many of my paintings are portraits in watercolor but my subjects also include flowers, landscapes, and military themes.
I live on a farm in western New York with my new husband, who has lived here all of his life; I relocated here from Los Angeles when we married in the spring of 2006. I am in the midst of preparing to paint a series of watercolors of barns in upstate western New York … we are surrounded by an abundance of beautiful barns in various states of repair, disrepair, and the point-of-no-return. They stand patiently, politely requesting to be captured in watercolor.
Our fifty-acre farm is situated on a river, with a stand of woods nearby. Our barn was built in the early 1800′s and will be the subject of a number of my paintings over time.
Meanwhile, via this blog I will share earlier paintings, and new paintings as they come off the easel. This is intended as a “painting-a-day” blog, but I might not be able to maintain that kind of pace. Please bear with me …
