Dear friends, April 10, 2018 I finished this private commission art piece last week. I definitely needed to get it done before our holiday to San Diego. There’s nothing worse than coming back to a project and trying to pick up where you

Dear Friends, March 6, 2018 Each year I choose a "Word to Accept". I've done this exercise since I started creating art over six years ago. Over these years, I have given a lot of thought to the choice of this short or long word. It seems like a simple thing....choose a word and get onto the next item on the agenda. But in actuality, it is like having a strategic plan; in art, in life, and in business. This one word encapsulates what I'm trying to achieve for a particular time frame....you could almost think of this word as a mantra. I start with five words.  I mull them over in my mind over a span of weeks and gradually discard the words that do not resonate with me and I finally select what I believe to be the right word for the present time. The word I choose this year is "CREATE".

Dear Friends, January 30, 2018 My latest commission finally completed. "Beauty on Aberdeen, Medicine Hat", 42 x 30 inches. Medicine Hat Commission. When my husband came home from work last night and looked at the painting, he commented on how he liked the work and also mentioned he saw a large "X" on the bottom of the right-hand corner.  I looked at the artwork again in complete surprise. "Well that's the reflection of the light hitting the door," I said.

Dear Friends, January 4, 2018 One of the things I find most interesting is to the experience of capturing a physical bricks and mortar building in a painting for a client. For this person has a story to tell. Each time he/she views the final painting, these memories associated with the bricks, pavement or landscape illicits this deep connection.

Life experiences play a huge part in this grand scheme. One day I catch glimpses of the direction of my art-making and this helps bring a new clarity to inform the next painting I begin.
