Welcome to my blog. Sit back, listen to the music (if I can ever get it to work again), experience a little visual stimulation and enjoy.

I'm really having fun with this series.  Always wanted to be a dancer when I was young, but life and piano lessons seemed to get in the way.

Night Out

Second in a series called "Dance" these are more found images made from chaos.  I really love this kind of painting - it makes me use my imagination.

Moon Dance

Some friends thought it would be a good idea to have a "Big Moon Party" the other night when the moon was in it's super moon phase.  We were a lot more laid back than this painting, but I love the exuberance!  I may have felt that way, and even howled once or twice.

"Poof" the magic dragon

The third in the "found" images collection, "Poof" appeared as a sort of dog.  Even though this is a little on the gory side, I still like it for it's drama.

Goofy Girl

The second installment of "found" images.  Goofy Girl was the "found" image - her face appeared  complete with eye and lips.

Geisha in Gear

This is the first in a series of "found" images created by making a background the then picking images from it.  The painting actually selects the subject matter, my imagination just enhances what I see.

Pear 4

Fourth in the series.  This one looks as if it's on fire.  My kind of autumn colors.

Pear 3

Third in the series - I think I like the unusual color combinations in this one.

Pear 2

Second edition in a color study of pears.

Dance Me To The Moon

Sometime when you "Make a Mess" something wonderful emerges.  I love this playful image of a dancing couple.  Makes me want to live in their world for a while.

Do You Like My New Chair?

I am so loving these blues.  Normally not a blue person, but these are so rich.  Sort of makes me want to redo my house.

Pear 1

Pears are such an interesting fruit to paint.  They have a sort of knobby shape that lets you experiment with color, light and shadow.  This is the first in a series.  We'll see where this goes - off into the wild I hope.

City Lights

This might be one of the most favorite things I have painted lately.  Made from a mess of a collage, it has emerged as an interesting painting.  Note to self:  never give up on a painting.

Full of It

It's been a long time since I have done anything worth posting.  But after taking Bob Burridge's workshop at the Bunkhouse in Cypress Mill, TX, my whole attitude about creating art has changed.  Bob freed my soul to just create - gave me permission to paint like I've always wanted - without fear.  Not everything is a masterpiece, but it's all fun and it pleases me.  That's all that counts don't you think?


About Me

I was married - for a really long time to the most interesting man in the world - Wayne Harmon. He is gone now, but never forgotten. We have one child, and two amazing grandchildren. I've been painting all my life, and consider myself a born teacher and a story teller.
