Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!  Are your tummy's full?  Mine is.  I have so many many things to be thankful for. I will name a really important one first.  I was fortunate to spend this holiday with my Dad and my sweet Husband.  Here is my Dad and I in this picture doing the turkey trot, just sweating up a storm and getting and creating a huge appetite in preparation for our big turkey meal.

 My sweet Kitty, Sophie waiting patiently for a taste.

I'm also excited and grateful to let you know "Purple Pungence" (seen above) was accepted into the 2012 Randy Higbee 6 Inch Squared Show in California.  What an honor it is to be represented at this show with so many incredible artist.  The opening reception in December 8th.

  4. Hi, I love your paintings. I'm trying to follow your steps here from Brazil. I'm starting a daily painting project for this month and maybe for the next year. I hope you could give me some tips to improve. I'm painting postcard size still lifes from life and using acrylics on watercolor paper. Take a look at:
