Wildflowers #2

I painted Wildflowers #2 at the end of this winter, when I was well and truly sick of piles of snow ... and spring just couldn't come fast enough for me. :)

Metallic white and silver wildflowers wave in the fresh spring breeze on a colorful background in bright pink, yellow, orange, light blue, dark blue, purple and green. This is a large painting (24 x 36 x 0.75") and would be wonderful in a living room, bedroom, or office!



A heart painted onto two canvases which can be hung right next to each other (as seen in the picture) OR you could space them a little apart and hang pictures of family and friends between them! You could also give one half to a best friend and keep the other half yourself. :) This painting is actually in two pieces (each half of the heart is on an 8 x 16 x 0.75" canvas, making the total size 16 x 16 x 0.75")


( SOLD )

Silver dove flying through a purple storm. But don't you worry -- it will make it to the other side and live a long happy life! :) This painting was inspired by the poem “Hope” is the thing with feathers by Emily Dickinson.

The Music

( SOLD )

I love rock 'n' roll. And totally awesome guitar solo's.

This painting features a guitarist playing a metallic silver guitar. In the background are a rainbow of colors...red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, etc. Looks kind of like a stained glass window. Music makes this guitarist's life a happy one. Rock on! :) 

Midnight Moonflower

( Collection of the artist )

Abstract blossoming tree with metallic white flowers on a lovely deep dark blue background. The flowers are a beautiful pearly white that make me think of the moon, in a midnight blue sky. The tree trunk and branches are outlined with a luminous blue paint that reflects the light and really makes the tree stand out on the dark background. :)

Old Guitar

( SOLD )

I love music, and that was my inspiration in creating this piece. I usually have my favorite music playing in the background while I paint. :) I created this piece a few years ago when I was first learning how to play guitar. The reason I chose the title for this piece is because I used a palette knife for most of the painting and I think the texture created by the palette knife makes the guitar look old -- and as if it has made a lot of awesome music over the years! :) The guitar was painted with a metallic red paint, that sometimes looks pink depending on the light in the room.

Misty Forest


A whimsical forest of abstract fantasy trees with circle blossoms in a rainbow of colors, while a metallic silver mist mysteriously swirls in and around the trees. This painting is textured in a very interesting way that kind of happened unintentionally, but I am really happy with the way it turned out in the end! :)

Seaside Vacation


My inspiration in creating this piece (and the title for it) was my family's vacations to the beach when I was a little kid. I love all the shades of blue one can see when one looks out into the ocean. Blue is one of my favorite colors (as anyone can probably tell, when they look through my paintings). :)

Tree By The Beach


Tree by the Beach is one of my favorites, I love how the background turned out ...the deep midnight blue lightening into worn-out-blue-jeans blue, to the warm brown sandy beach. I think this painting has a very peaceful vibe to it. :)



This painting was just for fun. There was no big idea behind it ... I had fun painting those circles and dots, though! :)


( SOLD )

This painting was inspired by two Def Leppard songs ... one of those songs is probably pretty obvious; but can you guess the name of the other song??? :)



This painting was inspired by the trips my family used to make to go watch fireworks on the 4th of July.


( SOLD )

I wanted to try painting an Impressionist-type painting, using darker colors rather than the usual pastel colors. This was the result ..."Ranunculus" flowers.
I really love the way it turned out. :)
