Hot Air Balloon 12" x 16" W/C $175

It is so quiet and serene that you almost feel you are not flying at all. Beautiful day with breathtaking views, ahh, what a day to take an adventure.

If you’ve never gone hot air ballooning, I suggest that you do. I took my husband up for his birthday last month. And even though I do not like hights, he and I both loved the ride.

The flight was followed up with a champagne brunch. I have a happy man.

Sunflowers 2 11” x 14” W/C $125

My favorite flowers.

Welsh Cows 12” x 16” W/C $175

In 2008 while staying at a B & B dairy farm in Abergavenny Wales, these cows greeted us each day coming and going about the farm. They were so cute and friendly that I just had to paint them. I knew I wanted the piece to be some what nontraditional and the pop art feel worked. Hope you enjoy.

Blueberries 16” x 20” Acy $325

I started off painting with acrylics and have been using watercolors for the past few years. Seeing this painting again makes me wonder the wisdom of doing either exclusively.

Paisley Damask 48’x24” Acy. $450

Dreams of damask and 50's textiles brought about this large painting. Lovely blues and browns, my favorite color combo.

Rainy Day Sunflowers 12” x14” W/C $175

Rainy Day Sunflowers because it was raining outside while I was painting these sunny sunflowers. Ahh, life's simple pleasures.

Play day 8” x 10” W/C Sold

This cute little painting is sold but I have others like it on my website:

Eccentric Ovals 24" x 24" Acrylic SOLD

This painting is sold but I have more like it at my website:

Nicaragua Mission Trip September 30th - October 5th

We are off to Nicaragua this Wednesday morning, 2 AM. What an exciting time for Craig and I! We will be going with 10 people from our church Foothill Vineyard of San Dimas, California. We'll be taking 220 "school paks" to schools in remote villages in and around Managua and Matagalpa. We will also be bringing baby supplies to an orphanage in a small area of Managua. We've also been asked to help paint one of the schools that we will visit.

We will be going along with our friends Dave and Pam Waters of Mira Ministries. To read about this wonderful ministry and learn more about the school paks go to:

I've always been fascinated with dragonflies and when took this pic at the Huntington Library and Gardens I knew it was a painting in the works.

Teal Rooster, Hawaii 12” x 14” $125 watercolor on paper

We came across this lovely rooster on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. His vivid teal and orange feathers reminded me of the ocean and sunsets on the islands.

HEN & CHICKENS, Abergavenny, Wales '08 W/C $175

Abergavenny is a quaint market town we visited in 2008. These pubs and coffee houses dot the townships all throughout Wales.

Our B & B was at a family dairy farm. See my “Welsh Cows” painting. It was a wonderful destination. We skipped the blood sausage but ate heartily at the farm and restaurants / pubs.
