A loose approach works for this painting of the Gerbera daisy- looking at color and shape and MOOD rather than a strict representation. No expectations is a good thing- in the sudio I learn about life.

In between some larger paintings, I am often drawn to paint flowers and these geraniums made it through the winter at Beach Studios. 8x8 gallery wrapped canvas; from direct observation.

Newport Art Museum
I got into the Newport Art Museums Members Show with this 30x30 painting. I was drawn to the perspective- from the steps of my studio looking down to the street- and wanted to make the very ordinary scene into something more. The arrangement of shapes, the choices of color, the things to emphasize and the things to leave out were all part of the painting process. The show ends May 22nd, so there's still time to see the exhibit!

Art review mention in the Providence Journal
I was thrilled to find out that my painting Lost in Time was accepted into the national juried show Color at the Providence Art Club. There were 750 entries and only 65 were chosen, so you know that made me feel amazing. Even more excited for a positive mention in the review of that show in the Providence Journal. 24x48.
