alcohol ink painted glass ornaments

I enjoyed painting glass ornaments at the beach - beautiful light and setting.


Some of these silks sold at the last show...but I've got more.

Mouth-blown glass cloches make decorative garden art, luminarias, and protective "huts" for tender plants.


responses to watercolors

an artist friend's words

"When I heard that the theme of your new paintings was 'home,' I thought of things domestic. However, your paintings are anything but domestic. They are alive and almost other-worldly in expression!"




from the guest book...

"Your watercolors break the light spectrum apart in the most magical way!"



art chat regarding observation in creative process...

"Perhaps intentionally noticing helps us become more present in our own lives - like children."
