Flowers, Ducks and Grandbabies Painting

The last two weeks I spent a lot of time outside planting flowers in pots and vegetables in pots and in the ground. I am trying hanging tomatoes which, at least, look great with the flowers and herbs in the top part of the pot. IMG_4769Mama Duck wasn’t happy with me trying to peek at the eggs, but I got a good picture.  This is going to be an interesting spring as I have a robin nest in a tree opposite the steps on my deck. She is dive bombing my dogs when they want to go out!IMG_4795



Grandbabies Painting

I have finished the painting and love how it turned out. I used Painter and a Wacom tablet and used a mixed media combination of brushes. Grandbabies_0010_048Finalsmaller

Let me know what you think of my paintings. Take time to enjoy the beauty around you. You can always find one thing of beauty in each day if you look.  Let your creativity flow. Let me know what you think about the paintings and what you like to see. Safe journeys, I’ll see you in the coming weeks. The wine bottle painting is next and then I will be doing a portrait of a golden doodle.

I reside in Northeast Ohio after traveling from coast to coast and living in both rural and metropolitan areas from Los Angeles to New York and of course the Midwest. I am a third generation artist and have been painting since the early 1960s. I have always cared deeply about animals, both domestic and wild, and the preservation of endangered species, has always been a concern as well. Most recently, I was involved in animal rescue work, finding homes for over 11,000 dogs and cats over the previous 12 years. It's only natural then, that I am drawn to animals and nature for my art subjects. I have also explored the metaphysical including creative imagination, Reiki, crystal healing, tai chi, feng shui and yoga and feel they add depth to my art as well. By creating an emotional connection for the viewer I hope my artwork will create concern and compassion for our natural world and its wild inhabitants, and help stimulate conservation efforts. My love of historic buildings and their conservation led me to doing the house portraits and my architectural works
