I really enjoy taking a break from painting realism and doing something abstract. My heart lies in my abstract drawings and paintings. I want to eventually do them in etchings.

Green Apple

After looking at a variety of daily painters blogs it became apparent that you must do 'the apple' in order to officially join the ranks. I may also have to do an orange, a pepper and some sort of sweet.

Boy Bona

This is my first attempt at painting my son's picture. I plan on painting his picture at least once a month for the practice.

I really enjoy using graphite and colored pencil together. The gray gives extra life to the color.

Temple Door Handle

This is another Asian inspired piece. This is a door handle on a building at a Temple in South Korea.

Sunflower 2

I like to paint bold colors against a dark background. It gives more life to the color.

Not For Sale
This is my first attempt at painting my husband. I photographed him while he was sleeping in the sun. The rays of sunshine create a very dramatic affect.

I am back to painting again. This is a bean crock that my mother has used many times over the years. It brings back fond memories of watching her cooking. I like the earth tone colors of the pot.

Asian Alley

This was inspired by a photograph that I took at a Buddhist Temple in South Korea.

When I do images that are divided I see them as the pattern of a thought. Your thoughts can be very random and disjointed but to the person thinking them they can see the relationship.

Another fine example of how I like to play with negative space and make the negative space the focus of attention rather than the actual object being portrayed.

I enjoy photographing my son. The way the light fell on him is very flattering. Even though the black and white pictures do not capture his brilliant red hair they are able to show his personality better.


Rays of light or shards of glass all offer a distorted sense of what we are looking at. This reminds me of a bullet hole in a glass window.

I Think I Can

I am sorry I didn't get around to posting anything in the last few days. I have been very sick all weekend. That is why I am posting an older piece again. Enjoy.

This is hot off the presses. The last few days I have been really into this earth tone ink. I find the medium also plays a big part in dictating what will be created.

Please click on the image in order to see all the details in the drawing. In this piece I used the shape of a picture puzzle to play around with positive and negative shape.

Orchid Lotus

This is a match to the painting I posted yesterday. It is showing on the blog that the two paintings were posted on the same day. One was done early morning and the other late the same night.


I was inspired to take up my brush and use ink. I like to play around with the tonal range of the ink. I like the warmth of the earth tone and the circular shape represents life.

Self Portrait

I had originally posted this without any comments. This is an older piece so I am at a lose for words. The older the piece becomes the more detached I become. It often feels as if I am looking at another artist's work.
