My artwork focuses on subtleties in form, color and movement. I try to show the viewer beauty in simple organic images and shapes. When you see the different media I work in you will notice strong connections between them.

Merry Christmas!
I was walking in the woods today, and found some beautiful small worlds beneath my feet!
It is so magical when you find something ordinary that looks extraordinary when you just focus and let your eye frame it. A little bit of sun and there you have magic!

It's almost winter and there are some beautiful discarded leaves to photograph! These were in the road and had been driven over and stomped on. I think they are beautiful!

Ahhhh! Fall is coming. There's a cool breeze in the air and the seed pods are dropping everywhere. I really love the incredible shapes they create.

Working on a new piece!
I am trying to keep away from my favorite color pallet  so here we go. Hopefully when I am finished with this painting I will not have gone back to my usual reds and yellows.
I am also trying to add a lot more flow by using very organic thin lines. We will see how it turns out!

Vacation!

I must be completely nuts! Went to beautiful, tropical, colorful, lush Hawaii and was drawn to a lovely dry leaf.  Here are some of the beauties:








And here are pictures of a dry leaf that my daughter found for me: 
(I love it! )

New Life!
This garlic clove was forgotten and so it decided to grow!
I love this magical little garlic clove!

 Luna Moth

What a lovely surprise to see this incredible Luna Moth on my house today! It was just relaxing in the sun while I snapped some close-ups. Love everything about it!

Light, shade and structure! 

I found two lovely little mushrooms growing in my grass today. Getting close enough to see the light shine right through the delicate structure gave me a very serene and peaceful feeling.

Shiny and hammered!
I am trying out sterling silver! These long earrings are made with sterling silver and copper and are inspired by a pair of long dangling ones I had bought many years ago.

Last day of the month!

Here we are at the end of April already and spring is trying to make it's way to New Hampshire. This beautiful plant is trying its best to come out of hiding.
I love the gentle iridescent leaves and the rich colors!

Shapes
Here are some of my beach rocks. For as long as I can remember, I have collected rocks. I especially love these round gray ones from our New England beaches! Their shapes are  so different from the sharp cut wood in my last entry. (I usually keep a small one in my purse for good luck)

I found some beautiful bold shapes today! These will help me with my next painting.

Ahhhh! 
The woods smell so fresh. It's quiet and I'm finding some beautiful colored fungus. What could be better?

Playing with copper again! ( just some experimental leaves)


Love the way a piece of copper can be made into something so organic.
