Welcome to my little corner of the universe.

My journey into the world of art began by watching Mom. She could work magic with a bit of paint and a brush. I was fascinated by how she could transform a flat blank canvas into a beautiful work of art. Now, several years later, I'm continuing in the footsteps I followed as a child watching Mom. Thanks for your inspiration and guidance!!!!

Untitled - Finished??? (24" x 18")

Lowered the horizon and added a few clouds on the left.  Think I'm finished.

Comments and critiques very much appreciated!!!


  1. I happen to be a "fan" of these two adorable boys through their grandma, Kathy! I was so pleased to see your first post about the project, and you were right. Something didn't feel quite right, and you've made the perfect changes. I like the boys interacting with one another, and the clouds in the left sky balance out the boys. You also worked on the waves coming to shore that I really like...it's like they aren't coming directly at the boys, but at an angle that draws your eye to them. Another excellent piece from your easel! Do share the reaction of the boys when they see it!

  2. Thank you Stern. I'm glad you like it!!!

  3. Finished?? Absolutely!
