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!!!!

Finally Finished????

Think I'm finallly finished with this. Let me know what you think...  Debating about a title: "Skywatcher" or "Defiance".  


 I will be entering this in the The National Weather Center Biennale show in Norman, Oklahoma.  "Art's window on the impact of weather on the human experience"  Cross your fingers that it will be selected for the show. 


  1. Sheila, was this selected, I just love this piece I personally call it "ominous feeling". I so love your work.... Marsha

  2. Thanks - this painting didn't make it into the show

  3. I am in disbelief that of all places Oklahoma couldn't see that this dynamic, strong, emotional painting would not be chosen. I'm sorry but it certainly is a travesty.
