Maui Sunset
Medium: Oil on Linen
2006

22" x 32"

I had always heard that sunsets in Hawaii were grand and, since it's a theme I love, I couldn't wait to see for myself. "They" were right!

The C-109 is a state highway in Colorado and had a mid-day view that was worth capturing.

Adrift
Medium: Oil on Linen
2006

26" x 18"

This painting was inspired by a photo in National Geographic. I found it fascinating how perfect the shadow of the falling leaf was.

 

 

Ancient Geometry
Medium: Oil on Canvas
2005

22" x 16"

My husband took this photo years ago on a trip to the Greek islands. All those hard lines challenged me!

 

 

Mexican Sunset
Medium: Collage, oil
2005

25.5" x 31"

A collector of "stuff" offered me some of her old playing cards and I thought they'd be interesting to place under a painting on glass that had lots of hard lines. The cards are fully visible from the back. The painting is brightly colored buildings in Cabo San Lucas with the edges of the cards creating hard lines within the buildings and sky.

 

 

Rockies in Summer
Medium: Oil on Canvas
2004

22" x 38"

We spent time in the Rockies every year for 20+ years. I was awestruck by the wonder of the mountains on every visit. This season series reflects just a tiny bit of the dramatic changes that take place over any year's time.

Through The Looking Glass
Medium: Collage
2003

18 1/2"  x 40 1/2"

This oil painting, incorporating the remainder of my Mother-in-law's key collection, is on glass. I love the relationship of the keys to the glass, the feeling of openness that looking through a window gives you and the possibilities that can be opened with keys. It is also interesting because from the back the keys are fully visible with the colors blocked in, while from the front it is a more “finished” painting with the keys almost not noticeable since they are painted over but they make the texture very interesting. Once you notice them, though, you have to give it some more thought!
