The neighborhood art show is back and I’m excited to show my work in the garden setting. I’ll be showing smaller works because my large paintings are in Madison, Georgia at the Places Far and Near Show. Artist and friend Hanna Marx is the organizer this year for the garden show.

Sketching at SCAD
I spent some time drawing in the SCAD Fashion museum in Atlanta and on the 5th floor deck overlooking midtown. The exhibit was draped clothing. It was interesting seeing all the different examples of draping fashion. I used a water soluble pencil in the galleries and then added watercolor afterwards. For the city view IContinue reading “Sketching at SCAD”

These items will be for sale at the holiday art show December 3 and 4. Let the funContinue reading “Gifty Art”

I’m inspired to create work that connects to the season. The exuberant sprays of daisy mums growing around the neighborhood caught my eye and led to this watercolor composition.
The Falling Leaves
…drift by the window I look forward to autumn for many reasons but one of them is looking closely at the fallen leaves. The variety of color, line and pattern never get old. Each leaf is unique and amazing. I enjoy trying to capture the exact colors and markings on a fallen leaf. I placedContinue reading “The Falling Leaves”
Vegetables from the garden
Overall my vegetable garden was average this year. However, I really got a bumper crop of squash. I didn’t plant them but they came up and just took over a lot of real estate. They seemed to be a hybrid winter squash of butternut and delicata. I’m enjoying painting all of the variations and patterns.Continue reading “Vegetables from the garden”

My newest work includes a piece of pottery I made, a figurine given to me by my grandmother and a cross stitch cloth made in the 1950s by myContinue reading “Assemblages”
