Noah’s guitar continued

Saturday, February 4th, 2012

I’ve started another painting in my class with Gabriel Lipper so I’m not moving along with Noah’s Guitar as fast as I might, but here’s the latest progress: I think this is where I left off in my last post – still trying to get the rubber out of that guitar neck… Catching the age […]

Friday, January 13th, 2012

Remember the pictures of my grandniece Sophie playing her violin and then a couple years later, her flute? Well, her little brother Noah, now nearly 10, is also a musician.

Portrait of Dennis and Liam con’t

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

Look who is back in her studio! It was a short summer and a long fall, but enough is enough. It’s time to start painting again!  I did the rough-out of a painting I’ve been promising my niece for about a decade but felt I needed a warm up before I could dive into it.  […]

Saturday, March 6th, 2010

The next day I was excited to get some color on this canvas, but before we get started I want to show you my new glass pallet and color layout. The glass is an old bathroom shelf which is nice because it’s sturdy and has rounded edges. I backed it with kraft paper which is […]

Our Home and Studio- the set up

Saturday, March 6th, 2010

As you know, we are selling our place and making that happen is taking up a lot of my time and energy. Draining might be the word. I was starting to feel like I work in an office, on a computer all day. The remedy was obvious: get back in the studio! If I’m hung […]

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

” Magical Miracle” 12 x12″ oil on canvas $150 A couple of months ago I was asked to participate in the Annual Women’s Invitational at Rogue Community College. The theme was Abracadabra.
