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 colors! I live in rural Michigan with my family on 80 acres with several cows, a rabbit, dog, and a few stray cats.
I have been creating art for many years and just finished my art education degree in 2005. I teach at the local community college and love it!! I also have several private lessons and with 2 days off a week i get to work in my studio.
Who could ask for a better life!!
