This painting is a family portrait. The guitar represents my daughter who loves music, the foil is my son who loves anything to do with the Renaissance, the stein is my husband, and the brushes are me. the books are for all of us because we all read.
I paint mostly landscapes and still lifes. i have been on a fruit spree lately...painting all kinds of fruit. i really like to paint bright, colorful landscapes and have been out plein air painting this summer. i will post more as i complete them.
I love art and especially playing with color! I live in rural Michigan with my family on 80 acres with several cows, lots of chickens, and my cat, Ms. Chessie.
I have been creating art for as long as I can remember from mixed media, to art dolls, to painting and printmaking.
By day, I take graduate level classes and work at the local college as admin of the graduate business program. By night, I teach art at the local community college and try to find time to create!
