Spring in Santa Fe, NM

Spring in Santa Fe, NM

I made it back to Santa Fe friends. I’ve been here just a month now, and will be here through July. I’ve been painting my heart out, catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. It’s been a wonderful time, even though some days the weather has not cooperated. We’ve had beautiful warm, sunny days followed by some cold, windy days with snow flurries. I’ll take them all as long as I can see the beautiful mountains when I stroll down Canyon Road.

I brought my oil paints along for this trip. I learned last year that acrylics just dry too fast for the kind of painting I like to do. And, I’m finding that I love the feel and texture of oil and having fun experimenting with them and pushing my limits every day.

I’m working on 12 x 12 size paintings on cradled birch panels using oil and cold wax. This technique comes in handy when I’m back in Florida as it helps the oil paintings dry faster. Here are some of the paintings I’ve completed.

For more information on any of these paintings, simply click the button below.

I’ve also been working on a series of mini oil paintings. They’re 6 x 6 inches on archival gessobord. I’m really happy with the way they turning out, and can’t wait for them to dry so I can have them framed. I’ll let you know when they’re available in my shop. I’ve got some tweaking left on a couple, so I’ll share photos in my next post.

Thank you for your continued support friends. If you know of someone who might enjoy my artwork, I would be honored if you shared this blog with them. And, if your friend makes a purchase from your referral, there will be a little something in it for you!!

May 2019 continue to brighten your lives with color.

You Gotta Have Faith

You Gotta Have Faith

I posted this image of my original painting titled “Faith” on Facebook this past Good Friday and received so many responses and questions about whether reproductions were available. The original painting is in my personal collection (my husband would not allow me to sell it), but you can enjoy it in beautiful canvas reproductions or giclee prints.

Ordering is easy! Simply click the image below and you’ll be taken to my Fine Art America shop where you can select the perfect type of print and size for your home.

And, while you’re there, you will notice that I’ve added several new paintings for your enjoyment.

If you’d like more information on this piece, or any of my other original paintings, I invite you to visit my website. And, don’t forget I offer complimentary US shipping and convenient payment plans can be set up anytime. I love to make it easy for my art to find their forever homes.

I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and are excited about the possibilities that 2019 offers. I have hit the ground running and wanted to share just a few things that are coming up this year. My first solo exhibit of 2019 will open on February 8, 2019 at the Highlands Museum of the Arts (MoTA) in lovely Sebring, Florida. If you’re going to be in the area through the end of March, please stop by MoTA to see my work.

Just a few things that are in the works already:

  1. I’ve applied for an artist grant from the Arts Council of Hillsborough County for professional development. Wish me luck!

  2. I’ve secured my first solo exhibit at TECO Public Art Gallery for November-December 2019.

  3. Booked my casita in Santa Fe, NM to spend three months painting this summer.

  4. Continuing my search for additional gallery representation.

I wish you a year of health, joy, and beauty through your enjoyment of the arts that you've invited into your world. 2018 was a year of growth with the addition of exciting exhibitions, and you - my collectors and art supporters who make all of this possible.

May 2019 continue to brighten your lives with color.
