Banyan series

These are the Banyan tree paintings I did in watercolor.  They are currently hanging at the Paint Creek Center for the Arts.  The images originated from photos I took when visiting Sarasota last year.  My sisters and I met up in Florida to honor the one year anniversary of our mothers death.  We went to the Ringling Museum and on the grounds were these magnificent banyan trees.  I took several photos of the details of the trees as they intertwined around each other.  They made me think of my Mom and how we are still intertwined with each other (my sisters) but also still with her.

Enjoying Fall

Living in Michigan can be challenging in the winter months.  It is  October now and winter will be upon us soon.  When the weather is nice you have to seize the day--Carpe diem!  I should have been doing lots of other things but I went for a walk in the local park and took some pictures of the beautiful trees and the always entertaining ducks.

10 Minutes of Fame

I had two painting accepted into the Our Town show which is at The Community House in Birmingham, Michigan.  I was asked if i would permit them to show my work on a Fox 2 News segment to promote Our Town.  I said sure!  I told all my friends.  I was so excited!  When they did the segment- my painting was nowhere to be found.  Short life in the spotlight!  I was disappointed but I am happy to have been accepted into the show and the opening party will be a lot of fun!
