Silver City Art Show & Workshop

It was 3:30 am in mid September – not quite fall enough for it to be cool, but at least it wasn’t hot – when my husband and I started on our trek east and up into the mountains towards beautiful Silver City, New Mexico. I was on tap to judge an art show and teach a workshop… my […]

Falling Into Autumn…

I hope this finds everybody ready to transition to Autumn after enjoying a splendid summer (in spite of the strange weather all over)!  I’m just settling into a quiet stretch of lots of time to spend in the studio, with occasional breaks to get outside and appreciate the desert’s shift to near perfect weather. I […]


A Bountiful Fall Harvest on the Easel!

Happy Fall everyone! I hope this finds you all staying warm if you live in a colder climate, or enjoying more pleasant temperatures if you live where it’s hot, like me!  My extended absence from updates is a direct result of simply being nice and busy, a good thing ultimately, and will give  me plenty to share! First of […]

When Good Tack Gets Painted…

I recently finished my first painting since October – when I started a series of art shows that has kept me too busy to paint (sounds ironic, I know).  I’ve always thought it would be fun to do a series of tack still lifes, and I finally got a chance to play with this idea where I play best – […]
