Asheville Citizen Times Story

In last Sunday's edition of The Asheville Citizen-Times Newspaper, I was honored to have my work featured in the Portfolio column of the Art's Section! I believe by double clicking, you will be able to read the article. "Summer Bride" is a favorite painting of mine and It's always nice to have one's work recognized!

15x11 watercolors

I felt in the mood to slide painting using wet paper. I dropped the colors , manipulated the paint by moving the support and liked the effect. I added some accents in colors I like.

Caribbean Delight

15x11 collage on paper

The effect of a net was created using cheese cloth which I glued with matte medium to the support. Afterwards I added some acrylic colors. Looking closely I saw the image of a fish. Having lived by the ocean as a child, I identify with marine themes and remember seing fish of this sort.

Yellow Fields


from my heart to the canvas these yellow fields remain in my heart as memories of past springs.

Underwater Fantasy


18x24 acrylics on watercolor paper

First, I gave the watercolor paper a wash of diluted acrylics. Then I glued a piece of cloth to the support and let it dry. I then painted the cloth and added some washes. Then I added the pieces of quilting material and glued them on to the piece of cloth. I thought it ressembled the bottom of the ocean and could see some fish swimming in the current.
