Here is a colorful, messy acrylic painting which I painted while trying to follow Tracy Verdugo’s lesson in Paint Your Heart and Soul 2018. I really like the girl and love the way her hair and headdress turned out. The background wasn’t totally successful. (backgrounds are always hard for me) It is far too messy […]
My Little Bliss List (Remembering the things that made me happy this week, because it’s so easy to forget them.) Shine Brightly That’s the name of this painting… The night sky out here is amazing.

Out here, where I live, I don’t have to go much further than outside my own door to find beautiful wildflower meadows. So it doesn’t surprise me that…. I’ve gone wild for wildflowers! Seriously. Once I started painting these I couldn’t stop. I blame it all on the Facebook mail art group that I […]
