"Blue Heron" 5 x 7 Watercolor $45 Always stately and watchful, the Great Blue Heron is one of our favorite birds. In this painting, I did a loose background in tropical colors, leaving some of the white of the paper to add sparkle.
"Autumn Gourds" 8 x 8 Acrylic on canvas $45 It is the time of year when you see all kinds of interesting gourds and pumpkins.

Painting is my passion and I try to paint as much as possible everyday. I love gardening and decorating my home, but when it is hot like it is here in summer, I find my studio is where I want to be! I have also been writing a book about my experiences in the antique shop business. Writing a book is a lot of hard work, what with editing and trying to get one's ideas down in a concise and interesting manner, not to mention the frustrations of using the computer!! I've almost completed it, though. I love so many creative things, including quilting! There just is not enough hours in the day.
