Project Description

I DREAM MY PAINING AND I PAINT MY DREAM

It is in those moments of unconscious awareness and daydreaming  that many ideas are birthed. These are sacred times I always want to protect. As I pause and respond to this state of mind, I often receive a new vision. Experimenting, discovering new textures, or even playing with a new medium often lead to surprising but pleasant discoveries.

New mixed media paintings

“Rainbow’s Falls”

Mixed Media on Board with Black Lacquered Frame, Matting and Glass | 30″ x 36″

I gasped at the first sight of Rainbow Falls’ grandeur.  Painting with mixed media again is exciting. I love to express the different textures, the sounds and the sweet smell of the forest.

Mixed Media Painting

“Eve’s Garden”

Mixed Media on Board with Black Lacquered Frame, Matting and Glass | 30″ x 36″

I love how Nature transforms itself into a beautiful blanket of colors during early fall.   It is magical!

Painting Just Passing Through

“Just Passing Through”

Mixed Media on Board with Frame | 30.5″ x 54.5″

This mixed media painting is a collage of organic and inorganic elements with impasto acrylic gesso.  I wanted to capture the fleeting nature of life, as in a myriad of leaves on still waters.  In one moment floating, in the next drifting.

Painting Leaves Fascinate Me

“Leaves Fascinate Me”

Mixed Media on Canvas | 24″ x 36″

The infinitely variable designs that nature presents led me to create this leaf-layered compostition of colors, texture and form.

The painting A Drop of Winter

“A Drop of Winter”

Mixed Media on Canvas | 24″ x 36″

On a rainy, autumn day while passing through the backwoods of rural Michigan, I was struck with a beautiful scene of falling leaves and flurries of snow dancing in the air.

Mixed Media painting on two layered glass

“Ah!  Sunflowers”

Mixed Media on Two Layered Glass| 11″ x 28″

I visited the Biltmore Estate (Asheville) two summers ago. I was welcomed by this breathtaking field of sunflowers!  It was my first time to see a huge array of big, bright yellow flowers. What an awesome sight it was!
