"Pitcher with Forsythia"

Spring time is slowly arriving and I needed a break from 2 large paintings that I am working on, so decided to paint something that I could finish in one sitting. I need closure sometimes.

"Wading Beauties"

Just west of the Ft. Lauderdale airport in Florida are the Flamingo Gardens which is actually a rehab/rescue site for wild birds. The gracefulness of the flamingos and their lucious pink feathers were a pleasure to paint. My biggest challenge was capturing their reflections in the water.

"Coneflowers in the Sun"

These flowers with their bright yellow and blue remind me that this dreary, rainy winter won't last forever. Each flower seems to have its own personality, which is why this was fun (or at least interesting!) to paint. Sometimes I would get confused as to which flower I was looking at.

"Along the Bayou"

I love painting water. I think it is a primal thing with me. Until I was 18 I always lived within a mile of the coast - somewhere. Water can be so many colors - it is hard to believe it is a clear substance. With pastels I can layer the colors and still see colors underneath.
