Floral Focus

My art is inspired by the many fruits, vegetables and flowers that I grow in my Chesapeake, Virginia garden.
They make wonderful models.
They work cheap, don't wiggle or chat while posing,
and have extremely 'colorful personalities'!

Every picture tells a story.

Many of my paintings 'come with a story'.
I always like to say that each one has a life of its own. I can work for hours at a time on a painting, finish for the day and turn out the lights. The next day, when I come into the studio - I often feel as if I'm seeing the painting for the first time. I know that I painted it, but it's funny . . . I cannot recall making certain decisions or why I chose a particular color. It's as though 'the elves snuck in during the night and worked on my painting '!  

I suppose this is because while I am working I 'go somewhere else'. This place is a Zone of its Own.
I'm in a total creative mode - immersed in a world of shapes and colors and ideas. They say it's The Right Side of the Brain.

I believe it. There is no math here. I love it.

If you see a piece or pieces that interest you, feel free to contact me and I'll share its story with you - and give you all the information you may need to complete your purchase.
