Join me....

I believe that art enriches and informs our lives everyday in many positive ways. Sharing those experiences, whether as an artist or as an appreciator, is part of the pleasure. I welcome your comments and hope you find something of value: a laugh, an insight, a new idea or just a happy moment. Enjoy art!

Siblings


"Siblings"

We don't have aspen trees in Florida so these beautiful white trunks fascinated me
while we were in Montana this past summer.  I knew I wanted to
include them in my series of works on trees.
These are done in graphite (pencil) and enhanced with acrylic washes
on a cradled board, then sealed for protection and framed.
I like combining the attention of the fine detail done in graphite with
the seemingly more abstract splashes of color gotten with
the acrylic washes.
This piece is 16 x 20 unframed and slightly larger in its black floater frame.

Oh!  I almost forgot: my husband named this piece.
Coming from a large family I think he saw these trees as brothers and sisters
with their lives all entertwined and their stories tangled together.
I liked the fact that he was being to anthropomorphize
the trees...something I have always done!
