ARTIST STATEMENT
Watercolor is my chosen medium because it offers me the ability to express translucent light and sparkling shadows like nothing else I have tried. Watercolor is like magic for creating the feeling of light!  
Signature Member of Transparent  Watercolor Society of America
My  book,"A Celebration of Light"  is available at Amazon.  I was interviewed in the French watercolor magazine, L'Art De L'Aquarelle and recently my painting "Sweet Rubies" was published in SPLASH 16 by North Light Books.
New Work
 Winter White Peony - 22 x 14 watercolor
This painting was place in an auction to raise money for the disaster in Japan. The final bid was $1800 and 100% went to ELCA Disaster Relief for Japan.
Once Upon A Blue Moon - 22 1/2 x 14 1/2 watercolor 
I decided on the night sky with the moon because I often write poetry about Mr. Moon and Lady Lake on my Facebook page and have alot of followers with my writing. I thought I needed to start to incorporate Mr. Moon into some of my work if possible. It is what I would imagine a night garden would look like with a full moon overhead. 
Musical Pears - 29x21 The title is a play on the game musical chairs. I began this painting as a still life but had no idea what the background might be. Then my imaginagion took over and the pears materialized into this whimsical game with the frog surprised at the pear that is now out of the game! This painting is published in Splash 16!
Made In Poland - 29x21 This was so fun to paint with all the texture in the water and the high contrast of light making it feel very dramatic.  
Sacred Shadows - 22x21  Several years ago I was blessed to take a trip down the calm part of the Colorado River at Page, Arizona. It was so beautiful and so very quiet there and around every bend it was another possible painting. This has been juried into America's Parks II and will be traveling this summer with the show.

Make My Day - 15 x 22 While on a trip to Yellowstone I was delighted to find this lovely swan posing for me! He kept his eyes on me but never moved so I really was able to get great pictures.
Bumbershoots-15 x 22  I am always looking for something new to paint and just take pictures of anything to create reflections and I loved what happened here. It is realism meeting abstraction and was so much fun to paint!
This is my new series called STRING THEORY.. I wanted to play with light and shadow to help direct the eye through the paintings.  
String Theory 1
String Theory 2
String Theory 3
Sweet Rubies are radishes from my garden with a vintage tablecloth from my family. This painting was juried into the 39th Transparent Watercolor Society of America Exhibition.
