Callalily Beauties

I have a large group of callalilies in "the back 40" that volunteer year after year. These were two of the earlier blooms that I photographed and then painted.

Iris Trio

I frequently do reproductions of my originals in a smaller format and mat them with an archival white matboard. I then paint the mat (as I've done above) and sell the 16 x 20 size for $65.00. In this case I decided to do a large original on YUPO and paint the mat so the total size is 24 x 30.
If you would like to purchase this original please call me at 714-271-1135 or email me at

October Sunset

We had dinner at a restaurant on the beach recently and were rewarded with a beautiful sunset which I've tried to capture the memory of here. The view was remarkable and so was the food. If you would like to purchase this painting ---

My husband and I went to San Diego last weekend to check out a possible show. It was such a beautiful day that we decided to visit the S. D. Zoo. It had been many years since our last visit and we were impressed with the changes--it truly is a beautiful zoo. The flamingoes were at their best and I got lots of wonderful pictures of them to work with. They are amazing creatures!!

Iris Showgirl

Sunday, July 6, 2008

I've been working on getting my summer show (Art-A-Fair) in Laguna Beach up and running.
The show runs thru July and August so any of you in the area would enjoy paying the show a visit. It's usually cooler in Laguna Beach so that's also an incentive! We are right down on the Canyon Hwy. not far from the beach and across from the Pageant of the Masters.

This painting is one I recently finished at the show. I love the feeling of the iris coming out of the shadows!

Blue Dawn

This was a memory from our trip to Virginia Beach many years ago. I managed to get up early enough to see the sunrise and it was worth it! We stayed in a cottage right on the beach so the view was spectacular.

This is a palette knife painting with lots of rich texture. I grow the poppies on a bank in back of my home. They have multiplied from just two plants I brought home from a nursery years ago. Their color lights up the entire backyard.

This is an original oil painting.

"Laguna Holiday"

This is a view from the walkway near the Montage Resort in Laguna Beach, CA. I was painting on the walkway above the beach and some children were playing on the beach. It wasn't a particularly warm day, but they were having a great time.
