We had perfect weather for the "Fall Foliage Art Studio Tour" weekend. The sun was smiling upon all of us. Fifty art lovers found their way to my studio. It was fun, exciting and enjoyable interacting with the visitors. I sold two paintings, two prints and many cards. I am enclosing two pictures of my studio and two others of budding artists who came to visit.
Inspiration overtook her - she created a small masterpiece
Pencil needs sharpening! Getting ready for the creation of a special piece of art. She gave it to me before departing.
Here is the little masterpiece. Her name was Danielle and she made it for me because she was "Little" Danielle and I was "Big" Danielle. This is precious!
I remember Huahine, an island not far from Tahiti.
I rented a bicycle and toured the island.
I traveled for six hours - many hills made my legs suffer,
but the scenery took my breath away.
As I look from a hill's top, I discovered this incredible site of
red earth and pink sand caressed by the lagoon's turquoise water.
From memory I created this landscape
recalling the light,
the Tiare flowers' scent
and the magic of the pink sand.
I used my fingers and a palette knife to create texture.
This winter has been hard!
Snow, sleet, rain, severe flooding everywhere.
It is time for Spring to return and shower us with gifts of beauty!
I created "A Spring Morning"
thinking of the wonderful color palette,
a feast for the eyes,
as earth awakens from its winter sleep.
I used my fingers and a palette knife
to give the painting some texture.

Welcome to my Art Journal
In January 2007, I decided to paint every day. I began with 2" x 2" paintings then to the larger pieces displayed on this page. I became fascinated with these creations and I just could not wait for the next day to paint a new one, then two, then three.....I do enjoy the discipline of painting every day and the fact that at the end of the evening I have a number of completed works on my desk.
