Got Grapes?

In our Seattle East-side eastward home, I had open shelves in front of the window above the kitchen sink, full of a blue glass collection: bottles and goblets mostly, in turquoise and cobalt blues. It was blue beautiful when the rarely-there sun shone in that window from our back secluded acreage yard. Almost like stained…

Lioness Watercolor Painting

It’s not a very good photo of a framed painting behind glass, but this is one of my larger watercolors from some years ago. (Maybe I can get a better and bigger shot to share later.) I used to do a good deal of portraiture, wildlife and scenic paintings in watercolor, one of my top…

Peach Magnolias (Tiffany style painting)

This is the second large painting I did (a little while back) which was inspired by floral Tiffany glass works.

The Spirit of Lady Liberty Painting

The Spirit of Lady Liberty Painting A while after 911 happened, and the spirit of freedom and American patriotism was abounding, I did this quite large ‘essence of’ Lady Liberty painting.

Colorful Women Painting

This pan of ladies of various shapes in a rainbow of colors speaks to the ideal harmony between women that I believe could exist, no matter their differences, because we are more alike than different. (Acrylic on Canvas) In addition: Since I have been asked regarding this ‘Colorful Women’ painting again recently, I began thinking…
