  1. those are absolutely beautiful paintings, i really liked to bid on the one with the plum, but it wasn't there anymore:-( greetings from germany

  2. What an honor it is to have greetings sent from Germany. I've sold to several countries... Australia, France, Holland, England, Italy,and Brazil, but not Germany yet. You could be my first. :)
    Thank you for your beautiful comments and your lovely visit.

  3. Love your luscious apples - and in scrolling down, the fig and the pear against the floral background. How talented you are!

  4. Ahhh! Thank you. You are very, very sweet. Thank you, also for the nice visit to my blog.

  5. How beautiful - and how I wish that I could paint! You are so lucky and very talented - I LOVE your work!.

    1. Thank you so much, Mrs. Sutton. I tell all my students that painting, as drawing, is a learned skill. It's much like dancing--some are born doing it, but some of us have to work at it. Still, we can all do it. I hope you enjoyed my blog and I hope you continue to visit it. If you are a teacher, I also have a blog for my sixth graders:
      I hope you have a beautiful day.

  6. Hi.. this is Bhavna and I truly admire your work. You really have an unconventional style, although quite different from mine but I genuinely respect it because it is unique. It would be great if you see my work at and we exchange our thoughts and broaden our insights.

Labor of Love

Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase,   Oil on 5 "x7"   Linen Panel SOLD  Private Collection in San Saba, TX First, I must say that everything I paint is because I absolutely love. I don't like to paint things that I don't find to be attractive to me for one reason or another. Sometimes it's sentimental reasons and other times it's as simple as beautiful colors or the texture. Either way, it's something that I want to capture and stare at for long periods of time. I want to study it and how it affects the environment around it, as in the case of Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase does. In that respect, I feel ALL my paintings are a labor of love.  More often than not, I have to create a painting, wipe it all down, and start all over again if something is just not working. Some never get completed and I just end up painting something totally different on that panel. Then there are some, that I just have to paint, no matter how much trouble they are giving

The Apple Tree that Could

Peonies in Glass Vase,   Oil on 5 "x7"   Linen Panel SOLD Private Collection in Lebanon, IN  Green Apple,   Oil on 6 "x6"   Linen Panel S OLD Private Collection in  NewCanaan, CT    This little painting is of an apple from an apple tree on our property. I've been babying it for about four years now. To my surprise, last year it finally gave apples. However, after a couple of days of seeing the tree with lots of apples adorning its branches, I took my daughter to see the little miracle, but ALL the apples were gone. She looked at me as though I was trying to pull her leg. This year, the tree was filled with even more apples. I hope they mature well so that I may share with my neighbor that's been admiring it.  Still Life with Chanel,   Oil on 5 "x7"   Linen Panel S OLD Private Collection in Pacifica, CA
