As I'm working on my large glass project and not getting in as much paint time, I will share some older works here. This one was a commissioned piece for a dear friend. I love to experiment with texture and pattern in subtle ways. I am also an animal lover and it is so fulfilling to me to see them come to life on canvas. I am also grateful that I can support my local community in sharing the proceeds with animal rescue organizations.

Had time to get two paintings in today! This one is inspired by a photo I took yesterday of a tree that was backlit along a dark path.
This is a painting of a wonderful garden just south of Seattle. The garden was started in 1927 by Fujitaro Kubota. He devoted most of his life to creating this wondrous garden that includes a lovely waterfall, bridges, lakes and meandering trails. It's an open park now that is maintained by volunteers. A must see! There is a carved stone commemorating him in the park too.
Here is a website on the gardens:
This is one of the views from our sailing. I love the evenings when the winds pick up a little and the skies are full of color.
Taking a break from the 250 piece stained glass I'm working on. Discovered a few tools needed an upgrade and am waiting for the parts. After a hiatus from painting due to a trip and this other project, I thought I'd bond with the paint again this week.
