Commissioned Piece

I have been having the most fun creating this commissioned work for my clients. It is 60”X 48” and the largest I have done to date. It just fits into the car! Animal Dreams, Acrylic & Mixed Media on Canvas

High Desert Art League

New year, new opportunities.  I have been accepted into the High Desert Art League, a professional Central Oregon Artists organization that promotes local artists through exposure in a variety of shows throughout the year.  Some of these shows are in our own backyard and occasionally we are showing outside of the area.  In May of this year HDAL will have a group show in Beaverton, Oregon outside of Portland at Art on Broadway.  We have a theme of Dans le Jardin and I am working on the piece now, will post the finished product soon!

International Society of Acrylic Painters

I am so excited!  My piece, "My Body, My Choice" has been juried into the ISAP Annual Online show which I believe begins in December and runs through Spring 2017. Out of close to 300 entries, 69 were chosen. Will post details when the show is up.


It is hard to believe but the Holidays are upon us.  When I am totally uninspired to paint, this is a great time to do something different.  These are some of the new ornaments that will be in the Red Chair Gallery beginning Thanksgiving.  We are closed Thanksgiving day, but come on in for Small Business Saturday and see these cuties in person!


Started working on this new piece today, am really loving working with the neutral colors.  This may call for a series!

Also, my 2017 calendars are available, all birds printed on thick card stock, 11"X14" size pages.  With shipping they are $27 when ordered from my website.  Please contact me if you are interested.  Many of the paintings can be found on the "For The Birds" page and some that are included are Hallelujah Chicken, Circus Chicken, Crow and many more.

New website title

OK, I have finally decided on a new domain, it is  Keep it simple, right?  I have no idea what I am doing so bear with me if you have interest in looking at this blog. I will figure it out when I have time to devote.  In the meantime, I have at the very least uploaded much of my work for anyone to view.  Happy painting!
