A Painting Video and Some Finished Works...


I thought it would be fun to show a little video, of a painting I finished and a bit of the process it goes through.

I hope to have this painting available in my etsy shop by the end of this year, as I have to wait for the oil paint to dry (6 months) then I have to varnish it. I love that part because the colors come back to life again.

Here she is all finished!

"They watched as she fed the little bird"

I actually did this painting in a small series of three, so here are the other two paintings that will accompany it.

"Fox Mount"
4"x5" Oil Painting on Canvas

and the two headed baby goat that I'm still working on.

" Two Headed Baby Goat"

All three paintings will be available on antique frames.


Here is a painting that I just finished.

This painting is now available in my etsy shop.

Wishing everyone a beautiful weekend!

Painting and Teacup Ornaments...

Hi there!

I just finished a painting that was inspired by these little teacup ornaments I made last year.

Titled "Adventures in a Teacup"

Here is a little poem I wrote for this painting.

"My Pretty Little Teacup"

I painted this little teacup,
With a forest that has no leaves
I placed it in the ocean,
And set out to the sea...

My pretty little teacup,
Is where I like to lie
When it's dark and lonely,
It is there...where I cry...

I don't know where I'm going,
The sea has set me free
I hope my little teacup,
Will keep indeed.

Where this journey will take us?
The stars that guide the night
I hope my little teacup,
Will keep my duckling safe inside.

I wish upon the stars,
So bright upon the sea
I travel in my teacup,
In my and me.

As I sail in my teacup,
With the wind flowing through my hair
If hope is where I'm headed,
Then wake me when I'm there.

5"x7" Acrylic painting on canvas.

This painting is now available in my etsy shop.


These are the little teacup ornaments I made.

"Emperor Moth"

and Black Beetles.

Now available in my etsy shop.

Wishing everyone a beautiful day!
