Flower & Foliage
Portraits and Still Life
with Pen & Ink
is an exciting
adventure into life around me. The subjects that peak my interest and
capture my heart are what you see in my paintings. I
enjoy capturing the texture of rocks or bark on trees or the fur
on animals and feathers on birds. To paint a two dimensional surface
and portray the glory
of the sky from sunrise to fog or clear blue sky to storm clouds, as
the grandeur of mountains and valleys capturing distance and
space is a joy and blessing. I love the
contrast of darks and lights as they play against each other in the
values of the subject. The Light has over come the darkness in my life
when I trusted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. He has given me
forgiveness, love, freedom, peace, purpose and so much more. I am able
to be the person He created me to be and use the talents He has gifted
me with for His glory.

Out of His Mind
Jan - Feb. 6th the Tewksbury Community of Artists pays tribute to
Mico Kaufman,world renown Sculptor and Medalist,
who resided in our town until his passing in 2016.
Mico always had images in his mind of what he wanted to create.
He would have more than one project going on at the same time.
This is my tribute to this humble, creative artist and friend.

Twisted, Knotted and Divided
has found a new home with a lovely couple.
I wore this scarf and when I took it off and set it down
I was reminded of the condition of our Country.
It is twisted, knotted and divided.
The light of our nation is dimishing because God is rejected
and pushed aside and good is called evil and evil is called good,
I pray for our nation, that we turn back to God
and ask for His forgiveness and be blessed.

my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray
and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from
heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
