I just finished these two seascapes. They are both 12"x12" oil paintings on canvas. I love the Randy Higbee frames on them. I'll update my website soon with better photos. Please forgive the glare on the top painting. Thank you for looking!

Art In My Garden

This past weekend I hosted an open studio and tour of my gardens. We've lived in this rustic home for 4 years now and have completed so much work on the property. I've planted over 60 trees and shrubs and hundreds of perennials. I've also edged my flower beds with a couple pallets full of round stone. It's starting to pay off and the yard looks lovely. I plan on hosting a garden tour every June and I promise my gardens will continue to change and evolve over the years.
