Monarch Maiden

Every once in a while an artist needs to paint something outside of his/her comfort zone. This painting was one of those experiences for me. People are not a typical subject for me and having all the butterflies included made it not your typical portrait. I was going for something a little magical with this one. I also think it called for an ornate frame. I hope you enjoy this one! 

Thank you!

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.
