I like to get my crafty hat on once in awhile. This year I’m making cards, bookmarks, mini sketchbooks and origami things with watercolor paper, thread, glue, sequins, markers, buttons, mod podge and whatever else is around. These items will be for sale at the holiday art show December 3 and 4. Let the funContinue reading “Gifty Art”
We’re all busy at the studio working on things for our next open studio in December. I’m using the next few weeks to complete both oil and watercolor pieces, frame works and just get everything looking good. We’re open for two days this year to keep it more manageable with crowds. I will have worksContinue reading “Holiday Art Show”
I’m inspired to create work that connects to the season. The exuberant sprays of daisy mums growing around the neighborhood caught my eye and led to this watercolor composition.
Overall my vegetable garden was average this year. However, I really got a bumper crop of squash. I didn’t plant them but they came up and just took over a lot of real estate.

I’m participating in two art shows in early December. I’m looking forward to meeting the other artists in Roswell and reconnecting with my friends and fellow artists at my studio in Chamblee.

It’s most associated with Claude Monet and other artists in the 1870s who became known as the Impressionists. I started doing work outside during covid and have been organizing an outdoor painting groupContinue reading “Plein Air”
After working on the mural for a few days I decided to change the brown/gold color to a deeper and cooler blue/black. This created more contrast with the light green background. It came closer to the image of the tree I was looking for. I added some cool blue highlights. At home I altered myContinue reading “Mural ongoing”
I accepted a commission to create a 16′ x 6′ mural on a wall of a newly designed technology company in Gwinnett County. I needed to create a very horizontal design. The company’s designer suggested a tree and possibly hands. I was given freedom to create the design. I decided to use the southern liveContinue reading “Mural – Day 1”
