This painting is not my usual style! My mother always asks me "Why can't you just paint a landscape?". If you've ever seen my paintings, you know landscapes just aren't my thing! But, funky paintings are...so, as a Christmas gift for my dear mother...a funky landscape! I wanted you to see the progress so the pictures posted begin with the background and show the progression through the process to the conclusion. I really enjoyed painting in this way so I may do more!
Who, me? I guess I'd say I am a painter of Ugly Girls (and sometimes, Pretty Girls!) and maker of things! I have a need to create that I just can't contain. I do something different every day. I paint, sculpt original dolls, make all sorts of fun things and teach at Artfest in Port Townsend, WA and Art-Is-You in Petaluma, CA.
As far as personal life, I have been married to a very supportive man, Ray, for over 20 years. We have 4 children (2 are grown) and 4 grandchildren. Thanks for visiting my blog!!
