Anyone who knows me knows I've been experimenting with Fluid Acrylic Painting, AKA Pour Painting.  Let me tell you, this kind of painting is so much fun!  I must warn you, once you get started it's really hard to stop.  This leaves me with quite a few paintings to work with.  Some are beautiful just the way they are and are hanging in my home, yet others are the perfect start to...

I recently made another Lino of our newest family member Stevie the Cat.  This time I video taped the entire process which took about two hours...and reduced it to about 7 minutes.  

Lino's of Stevie are available and will be listed in my Etsy shop soon.

It took a while, but I'm back at it again.  Getting back to the routine of creating art after a life disruption has not been easy for me.  Thankfully, I had a couple of pending projects and a push from my friends to put me back on track.  

So here it is...my first project since the big move into the new house.  Granted, I had quite a time finding some of my sup...

My most recent Story Painting "Witch Way".  

All of us are slowly trying to return to "normal" after the storms here in Florida. I am grateful for beginning to feel normal again as so many of us are still recovering from the devastation left behind.  The stress of an interrupted life can be hard to bounce back from.  

In a effort to find my a...

That's me at my first-ever art show...Boomtown Days Dunnellon, FL. circa ~1990. 

I was doing Quick Sketch Portraits that day and I even won a prize for one of my paintings!  I didn't own a tent so my husband made me a peg board stand to hang my art on.  

Back in the day, in a time before personal computers and cell phones, there was no such thing as Ebay, Etsy, or Fi...

 A watercolor portrait of my father's friend Randy.

Beginners luck is something I experience often when I'm learning a new method.  In my efforts to loosen up and paint in broad strokes, I had the happy accident of creating this painting of my father's friend Randy.  He was a great subject to start with because he has such an expressive face...and that beard!

In this Arti...

This week I decided to take a break from painting to make monotype prints on a gelli plate.  My idea required that I go bigger than the 3x5 plate that I had. Since gelli plates are a bit expensive, I decided to try my hand at making one from a recipe I found on the internet.  I should mention that I altered the recipe just a bit...I added a little more gelatin than the original r...

The one constant in my work space, be it in my studio or my kitchen table, are my two most loyal side kicks, my cat Huey and pup Cooper. They are an endless source of inspiration with their amusing antics and graceful postures.  

These two clowns help to keep things light.  They are my "go to" muses when I'm feeling stymied in my work.
