I painted this a few months ago but don't think I'd posted it yet. It came together fairly easily. I do miss the ocean. Love painting it!

Birthday Roses, Acrylic Floral Still Life

6"x8", $95
Yesterday our youngest turned 13, today we celebrated our 31st anniversary....lots of celebration going on. It's been a wonderful Christmas season with lots of socializing, eating scrumptious food, hearing from friends all over the world, thoughtful gifts given and received, and lovely weather to boot! And now I am ready to get back in the studio and paint. Hope to post some new work these next few days. Happy New Year!

Rochester Tree, Acrylic Portrait of Evergreen Tree

4"x6", $50
I finally got some painting in last night. Late. So much to do this time of year...can't get on top of it all. Anyway, this tree reminds me of the 7 years we lived in Rochester, NY and the beauty of snow on trees. Thank you for stopping by....Merry Christmas!

Bethlehem Night, Mixed Media

48"x24", $600
I wanted to try to imagine on canvas the scene of Bethlehem 2000 years ago. Looking up photos online, I saw that there are low hills there. I used a variety of printed tissue papers as my surface treatment including Happy Birthday, Christmas trees, Santas, etc. Then I used acrylic paints to depict the scene. I can only imagine what the Magi saw and how they followed that star.
