For my birthday yesterday a friend came over for brunch. She brought these beautiful flowers. Another friend that morning called and asked if she could take my son for a play date with her daughter during the day. While I had the house to myself, I did this painting. What a great birthday!

This is the painting I did during a worship evening at the church a couple of weekends ago. Below are some shots of me painting it. I really enjoy doing this, it is a beautiful way to express how much I love God.

Crowded Color


11x14
oil on canvas
(not for sale)

My husband and father in law took our son to a car show so I had all day Saturday to myself. I took the time to sleep and paint. It was a perfect day. This is painting I did. I love my flower pots this year. Rich burgundy and orange colored pansies dominate the arrangements. Pansies are so happy with there smiling faces. Something my grandpa admired about this flower.

June Blossoms SOLD



Acrylic on Canvas
16x20"

I have been wanting to paint the apple blossoms that are in bloom right now for days. I had the opportunity to worship through painting at a church function. In preparation for that I painted this still life.(I will post the one I did during the worship time soon.) It had been a while since I actually painted anything let alone painting with acrylic, and painting in front of people, so I felt I needed to do a painting before the actual evening thats what this one is. It felt so good to get back into it. I hope to keep the momentum going now, as I am not feeling so tired these days.

This painting and the subject matter represent for me a new start. With picking up the paint brush this time I felt a newness to my work, something fresh. I through caution to the wind and just started to lay down paint. Also with a new baby on the way, I was experiencing a bit on anxiety with health concerns and just the anticipation of a new addition to the family and all that comes with that. The last few weeks I have been really leaning into God for all of it and seem to be experiencing a peace and a balance. Life is full and is good.
