I try to paint in all sizes, this little gem of a landscape would make a lovely holiday gift for a lavender lover! Any of my paintings can be created on a larger scale, so if you see one you would like larger, feel free to contact me!

Impressionistic and symbolic, angels are a joy to paint. I love to paint these, especially around the holidays.....if you would like an special custom painted angel, please contact me. I'll create her with any special colors, hair color etc you like!
Absolutely one of my favorite animals and my favorite to paint for sure. The grace, power, and beauty of these animals in motion is so much fun to paint with my knife. Capturing movement and energy is pure joy. Hope you enjoy!
This place is unique and special and so much to paint!! I added extra layers of paint to this particular scene so it has some amazing broken color and rich texture. Bits of gold, blue and glowing color.

"Art is not what you see, but what you make others see."
Edgar Degas "It is all very well to copy what one sees, but it is far better to draw what one now only sees in one's memory. That is a transformation in which imagination collaborates with memory."
I love the paintings of the French impressionist Degas and this one was a bit inspired by him. I often live by this last quote when I paint. I rarely look at images anymore because I see things so clearly in my mind and it is so much more exciting to paint from my imagination!
Every time I paint Tuscany Italy, my heart experiences an intense feeling of calmness and peace. I know exactly that this feeling comes from the relaxed atmosphere of this serene part of Italy and it's beauty is intensified because of this sense of calm.
This painting is still wet but available for purchase!
