Paint at the most playful moment, during mixing
A wave for Christopher, digital paint on aluminum $1600, limited run of ten (dye sublimation)

This little beauty is headed to the open competition at the Museum of Ventura County. I am so excited as a digital artist to be included in the competition, I feel like I’ve already won. Hand drawn digital artwork. I made this with love for my biggest supporter, my husband. He has kept me painting even when I wanted to quit. Ten hours of painting time went into this piece. I decided that when I was painting these waves, that I would dedicate them to someone. It made it a lot more fun to paint if I was thinking about someone I loved, admired or found I had a connection with, like a childhood friend.

Hendry Beach, painting with Mary

New Work– As people are decorating Christmas trees, celebrating Hanukkah and boarding cruise ships. I am working away creating painting after painting. It is surreal but the show must go on! I will be showing next month at Fox Fine Jewelry in Ventura California and I am preparing for two other shows as well. It looks like a mad house over here. I keep shuffling paintings around, trying to make more room. I think I am in a good spot now though and can actually slow down a little. I will hang some ornaments, find my husband and say hello to my children. Happy Holidays
