The Hornist

March 21st, 2017 No comments

When I dream a painting, I have to try and paint it. Rarely, it comes out like the dream painting, always it’s an exciting painting experience, taking me where I had not thought to go. This painting is of a very special horn player, my son. After waking up from the dream, I searched through pictures that might work with the image in my brain. The reference photo comes from Tobin Holliday Photography.

The Waterfall at Misol Ha

March 19th, 2017 1 comment

My husband and I had the good fortune to travel to Chiapas, Mexico this spring. One of the most beautiful places we visited was this waterfall. We had enough time that I sat down right there, with that amazing scene before me and painted it in my little travel journal. Then I painted it again. If it had been a little warmer, we would have jumped into the water. This is a 15″ x 22″ painting on fine Arches watercolor paper. It is for sale, I am asking $300 for it. All proceeds go to endangered species conservation.

a cat named Little Singer

March 18th, 2017 No comments

I have been very proud and happy to be painting pictures of and for Il Gattaro di Aleppo. After painting another portrait of Alaa, I saw this adorable little cat sitting, a little timidly, with her tail wrapped around her front paw. I had to paint her! She’s so beautiful. Some of these Syrian cats have the most amazing faces. This was painted on 300 pound Indian Village Handmade paper (thicker than normal) and measures 14″ x 22″
All proceeds from the sale of this painting will go to Il Gattaro di Aleppo
