Face Time, fawn in the grass close up


"Face Time"


I have worked on this painting for over a year, off and on.  Re-drew him ten times at least! I like to free-hand most of my work, so I tend to do a lot of adjusting instead of just filling in color.  I think it gives me more freedom to exaggerate things or change the perspective as needed. 

This was fun because his eye was so big and gorgeous, I just had to play it up!  And also because I haven't done my namesake in such a long time.

Endless Joy, palette knife angel


"Endless Joy"

Took one of my abstracts and added this angel to it.  Love the way it came together!

This angel is for the kind of joy you can only find (even in hard times) when you lay down your plans and seek the Lord's.


Angels are not like humans and humans do not become angels (according the the holy scriptures).  The fallen angels are far out numbered, and we have been given power over them in Jesus name. So when we forgive and pray blessings on others and ourselves, our Father's angels battle for us, helping us overcome the trials and hardships that come against us.  They have been given charge over those who seek the Lord.

Summer Camp, Mountain Landscape


"Summer Camp"

Just added the canoe to this painting of the Spokane River.  There was a bunch of canoes piled up just to the right, so I decided to pull this one over and include it.  Didn't want it to take away from the rest of the painting, so I added lots of weeds in front of it.  Really like the way it adds more interest to the composition.

Enduring Love, Cross with a dove at sunrise


"Enduring Love"

Created this painting a few years ago.  It is now available in cards and prints!

 This is surrealism. Lots of symbolism too. The sunrise represents the new covenant,  and the crown of thorns is for the suffering He bore for us to find healing and eternal life. The dove is for the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ, who lives in us when we commit to living for him.  (Which is not the same as being religious,  but living day to day as He leads us, by his strength and power to overcome the hardships we all face.)

Tea Time, teapot still life study

"Tea Time"

Painted this in 2003, my senior year at Florida Atlantic University. 
Loved all the movement in the folds of the fabric, and the cast shadows on the pot. This has to be the hardest still life study that I have ever done!

Bushes and Beaches, Plein air painting, seascape with sand dunes


"Bushes and Beaches"

Got to do a paint-out a couple of weeks ago! Even though it was extremely hot that morning, it was by far the best plein air (on location) painting  I have done in a long time.  Thank goodness for the little pavilion we had for shade....

Rise and Shine, dairy cows and deer


"Rise and Shine"

So much symbolism here. It was January, a new year, a new day. Bright sunlight is breaking through the cool morning shadows, like a new start to putting the past in the past and focusing on the present. It is about overcoming depression and finding joy again.

I used to sing a song to my boys to wake them up that gave me the title for this painting: Rise and Shine and give God the Glory, Glory...

Big Lake Sunset, knife landscape painting


"Big Lake Sunset"

This is an older painting. I did it alla prima, or all at once, it is of Lake Okeechobee.  I truly love the texture and color that is unique to knife paintings.  Some of my students are doing palette knife beach scenes right now, so I wanted to post this one in response to what we are doing in class.

Forsaking All Others, pointillism of a red rose


"Forsaking All Others"
18" x 24"
ink, pointillism

This drawing won Best of Show in my second year in college.  I just made it available in print.  It is made up of hundreds of tiny dots.  Shadows are created by placing the dots closer and overlapping them at times.  Highlights are made by scattering the dots farther apart. Very intricate and detailed work.
