A work in progress called Bluebirds, Baskets and Ribbon

Garden Watercolor doodling is always enjoyable. This is a Japanese watercolor board. The back has nice gold leaf, and the front has a few flowers scattered on the board. Painting in between the three dimentional enhancement is fun. When I was finished I took a nail and hammered two hole to allow me to thread a lovely french ribbon for hanging.

Bluebird Oil Sketch

I found these nice small linen canvas to work on. I thought I might try sketching in oil like I sometimes sketch in Watercolor.

About Me

My photo
I was raised in Long Island, New York and in my early twenties, moved to Manhattan and worked there for many years in the computer field. I have been an artist as long as I can remember. I started painting in 1983 while living in Princeton, New Jersey. I found lots of inspiration when we moved to Hong Kong for my husband's work. Five years later, we moved to Toronto. We returned to New England in 2002 and I have enjoyed all the creative and inspiring resources that surround me. The Lord has blessed my life with a wonderful family and many gifts.
