playful Details

Original in a private collection - contact me for details

"Playful" was such a fun exercise of remembering my childhood, climbing jungle gyms, playing on the swings, riding my pink bike and marveling at things like rainbows. They always seemed to say "come out and play again" after a storm. I think this is an amazing reminder as an adult.

dreaming of spring Details

Original $648.00 + shipping

 If you can't tell already, one of my favorite artists is Monet. I just adore the color palette he used. And I'm a bit jealous of that beautiful garden that was the subject of so many of his paintings. I  started to think about what it that garden must be like in Spring, how it must smell and how I would love to just sit on a bench with a cup of tea for the afternoon there. It's Winter where I am right now, so I decided to paint what I imagine it looks like on an early spring morning when there might be a little fog and some frost.

summertime Details

Original $2160.00 + shipping

My husband will fight you for this painting ;) After living in Europe for so long, I had forgotten just how amazing the Southwest sunsets are. I couldn't help but try to capture the summer skies that made me gasp daily, including the monsoons! I love the feeling of summer and while I now live in perpetual summer weather, I wanted to share the feeling it gives me with those who have a proper winter.

dance Details

Original $2160.00 + shipping

 My husband and I had gone to the Arizona Biltmore not long after we moved to Phoenix because we are both fans of Frank Lloyd Wright. While wandering around the hotel, we came across the McArthur Ballroom.  I thought about all of the happy moments that have happened on the carpeting; the weddings and anniversaries, job promotions, people falling in love....I took a photo to remember the color scheme and as soon as we got back I had to start painting! Dance is what emerged.

proof Details

Original $2160.00 + shipping

 I have to admit, "Proof" didn't come from the most positive place, as you can probably guess from the title. There are people in my life that don't understand what I do. They think art means you paint landscapes or still lifes only. I felt the need to prove to them that yes, I can paint damn flowers too! And just to add that extra little dig to these naysayers, a paintbrush never touched this canvas. The leaves were painted with a palette knife and those hydrangeas were painted with a stainless steel spoon. 

*update: I couldn't take it anymore. Knowing this painting came from a negative, unhappy place - the opposite of what I'm trying to do here - it just felt heavy and serious. I sat and thought about what I could do to make it feel lighter and more fun. Then it hit me. It needed a childlike touch. Kids always feel so good and have so much fun when they color and draw. So my inner child drew a big bright yellow sun on the canvas right from the paint tube!

calm Details

Original $2160.00 + shipping

Call me  a nerd, but one of the visuals I get when thinking of calm or a calming place is Superman's cave of solitude. I think of how all the different colors of white and blue in there, coupled with the quietness, must have been so relaxing.
