New Website!!!

Well, It's not a new URL...just visit the one you might have before: and you will see a bright and shiny new site. I have changed everything. My brand is getting streamlined to present my fine art in a consistent way across all the sites on which it appears. You may have noticed a slightly different blog header as part of this process, and shortly there will be a new header for the Etsy shop as well. I have recently cataloged my work so that I can keep track of creation dates and ownership of paintings that have been sold. I am using a very awesome program called Bento and part of the reason I purchased this program is that it also has a way to create mailing lists and other helpful management for creative types like moi. So, I am compiling a mailing list to send an occasional digital newsletter to and also postcards to announce upcoming shows and new work. Yes, that one is a real, snail mail, beautiful, four color postcard. Please join my mailing list by sending me a quick email! You may send me an email at, or, or go to my site and use the contact page. Any way I will get it!! New work will be around the corner!!

Tiny Treasure No. 18, Yard Art

This painting is of a piece of yard art hanging on a wall in an antique store I shot in Charleston. The head had an ancient Roman feel to it and I found it very intriguing. I temporarily titled it "The painting that will Freak my Kids Out." I am currently re-working or trying to finish my Lucky Strike painting and re-designing my site. I will be announcing it's re-grand opening in the next day or so.

Tiny Treasure No. 17 Fortune or Folly

Wow! I am so grateful for the handful of people that are taking the time to follow me!!! You have no idea how much it matters to me! So, over the last couple of weeks we have camped, gone to Disney and I have participated in two really awesome workshops!!!! I am still in the midst of one (it's twice a week for two weeks.) This getting out of the house has really helped me to focus emotionally on my work, and today I got back into painting. I am also working on a brand new revamp of my website and blog. So exciting!

Here is Tiny Treasure No. 17, Fortune or Folly. I find the red very dramatic and mysterious. I think as a matter of fact that the fortune cookie will be my subject again tomorrow but in a very different painting. I look forward to my show and tell!!!!
