Blue and Gold Dream

This is a multi media painting done on foam board. It has many layers and I have used just about all the media I work with. The final touch was given with pastels and then I painted the string and glued it onto the surface. Lots of fun.

Romantic Nights in Spain, Series One

This image is 9x12. It is one of a series reminding me of visits to Spain and particularly to the Alhambra in Granada. I had three strips of old watercolors that I pieced together and then added the collage half moons from other pieces . I then had the idea of the bubbles . There is actually a building in the Alhambra whose columns has lots of circles. More to come on this series.

In the Net

This is number one of three collages to be shown together . Each one is 8x10. I will be posting the other two to be seen better. I used cardboard, tissue and part of a net from a potato sack I got at the grocery. I continue to produce these paintings which always remind me of underwater scenes or are symbols as my life in the tropics. Anyway, I had lots of fun creating this series.

Reflection Series Two

This series, number two of Reflections is 24x28. The method was the same as Reflections One, collage. There is a painting underneath which was used as inspiration to use part of it, the black lines and then I collaged parts of paintings which have similar colors or fitted what I was trying to do. I have also used very small pieces of white paper left over from cutting the sides of sheets used for cards.Hope this makes sense.

This is a series called Reflections, A New Day. The painting is 15x22.The painting has several layers. It waas done two paintings one on top of the other using only only part of each image from each painting and glued one to the other. Then I collaged the accents from parts of paintings I had.I am finding that I like collage work more and more. It combines my skills and works well for me.

Yellow and Red Floral Space

This painting is 16x20. It is a watercolor. The inspiration for the painting came from the beautiful lilies I have in my yard every June. I have had the photograph of these lilies for a long time, but decided to give it a different treatment from the regular flower painting.

Blue and Pink Friends, from a series of Life with Papa

This is the first of a series I have entitled Life with Papa, but this one is called Blue and Pink Closeness. I wanted to celebrate my life as a child, which was a happy one. My father was a very colorful person and a very active person and he took us lots of places. He built us a beach house where we would go for 3 months every summer after school was out. We had a great time and got to play all the time.

Rock Phenomena

A mixed media collage which reminds me of a rock group, not a musical one, of course. There has been a rock slide around here which kept a major interstate unusuable in certain parts. Just imagining how it may look for an artistic point of view. Measure 15x11.
