Buzy, just a peek!

Life has been very buzy, but here is just a peek at what I've been working on. I know I have missed 2 of my self-imposed deadlines, but it couldn't be helped. As soon as I figure out Etsy, I will list a few things there. Also, I'm doing a christmas art journal again with d'blogala this time. Journaling around and about Christmas did really seem to help with the Christmas Blues. We may be off to Florida for Thanksgiving, but the kitchen isn't finished yet. We'll see what happens. Enjoy!

The animals are characters in children's books, my husband, Art, and I are writing at this moment

Landscapes are painted from a variety of inspiration, on location, sketches, photos, and even memory. The Tennessee landscape is just starting to feel familiar after living here for 10 years. Maybe that's beacuse we haven't traveled at all this year. I am originally from Maine and I travel to Florida a lot, so I have quite a lot of visual memory of those places. When I only have time for a quick pencil sketch on location, the paintings would be finished in the studio with the help of the sketches and photos.

The abstract paintings come from experiements, I am happy with. They are a way for me to try new things, either colors, techniques, etc. and to grow. They don't fit into any particular style, but they always have my color palette and my mark making.
