"Tools of the Trade"
oil on 1.5" deep canvas

After painting for over 40 years, I have purchased more
of these than I would ever like to think about. I still
have some brushes that are at least 20+ years that have
become old friends.
I can always seem to find a use for them,even when they
are worn out. I get very attached to them and unless
they are completely fallen into pieces,which is rare,
I never seem to throw them out.

Spooning Around - antique spoons

"Spooning Around"
oil on canvas

I was cleaning out on of my kitchen drawers......
you know, the one that collects everything....
I found some of these old spoons that have been around
forever. I had laid them down on my table and when I went
to get them, I noticed how interesting they looked and
decided I would finally put these old items to use! :)


The Other Room - Monet

"The Other Room"
oil on canvas - 8"x 8"

I really like the color & movement in this one:
To connect the movement & color of a
Monet style water painting with the woman
that would lead you to the "other room".
