Welcome! This blog began as an assignment in a digital art class. That was in 2008. I decided to keep it going as my art journal. It is fascinating for me to see how a painting develops, so this is where I post my painting progressions and exciting new things I find on creative blogs and websites. I hope you will learn along with me about painting, drawing and all kinds of art.


Paintings in their new home! (in-situ photos)

Thinking II   oil on canvas   24 x 36 inches

My blog post about Thinking II.           And a post about the painting that inspired it.

Lost Horizon II    Coarse pumice gel, oil on panel   30 x 36 inches

This big painting above was inspired by this teeny one (below). 
I posted about the process of painting the big one here
It is kind of fun to see that ... even for me.
Lost Horizon    ~ 4 x 6   oil on wood

I am so happy to post that these two large paintings
now have a new home!

The painting Thinking II, the first one my collector bought from me, 
was her first ever purchase of an original painting. 
She has bought prints (who hasn't?), so she was super excited. 

She was decorating her new office 
and when I delivered the second painting Lost Horizon II
I was able to see the first one
and the new one hanging in-situ

She snapped a few photos when the light was better.

Let me introduce you to Margie. 
She is a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) 
with her office in Juneau, and here is her card.


Huge thank you's to Margie for purchasing these paintings. 
I am honored she has them hanging on her office walls.

And thank you to everyone who takes the time to click on my blog.
I really appreciate it!

Happy painting to my fellow artists. 
AND happy collecting to all those who appreciate art.

What a fabulous painting, Thinking II is, and then I saw Lost Horizon II and loved that one too. You are very versatile.
How nice of you to share your collector's card and I really like your painting in her office.

Love the bold brilliance of Thinking II. And your process for Lost Horizon was so awesome to read. Deep.breathe.just.paint.love.it
Many days on the sea for me where the horizon blends into sky. A beautiful quest to paint it. Much love. H
