6 Things I Fear Painting The Most

Happy New Year!  I’ve been doing some spring cleaning, and redecorated the place, enjoy! My first post of 2016 may seem a bit dismal, but if looked at through the rose colored glasses I like to sport, it is really a call to action to forge on and overcome that which can hold us all back! […]


New Studio Oasis

It’s been just over a month since moving to my new home and studio, and I can now say with confidence that this is a true creative oasis. Surrounded by open desert and only a few miles from Saguaro National Park East, it’s filled with a refreshing and innate tranquility. The interior is ingrained with a notably positive […]


Surviving Another Summer at the Easel!

Wow, It’s been a hot summer all over the place!  I hope everyone is staying cool and comfortable, I feel for everyone suffering from excesssive heat because it’s one of my least favorites parts of living in the desert!  The countdown to October is what helps me get through the summer… and there’s less than two months to go! Fortunately, the […]

More Quality Time at My Easel!

As the weather in the desert now gives subtle hints of cooling down… eventually… I’m getting back into the swing of things at the easel after a long summer that left me  little time doing what I enjoy the most – painting.  Time was not wasted completely over the hottest months.  When I wasn’t able […]


…And We Have Reached the Finish Line!!

  A Completed Piece! By late Monday night (way to late for “yours truly” who has to get up for work at 5:30 am – and yes, I paid for it in the morning but it was all worth it) I was able to get this piece finished and drying without much difficulty. This was a really fun piece […]
