Turquoise Beauties.

How nice it was to see such beautiful blue eggs today. How precious life is.


Great Art By Stavros Damos

I am in love with the graphic art of Stavros Damos. This is a collection of the rolling stones. How awesome! I might have to give this style a try of my own.




















Summer fun.

Summer is here and I am so blessed to live in the beautiful town of Hilton Head Island. Beach, pool and fishing has been the way it has gone so far and I have no complaints. The only bad news has been the passing of my daughters first pet "Rosie" the beta fish. Looks like I will be making a trip out to the pet store.
Enjoy your summer!

California=Succulent Paradise

I just got back from a trip out to southern California. Thats me down there looking happy as a clam.I was out there for my mothers wedding which was so beautiful. But I must confess I was a little distracted by all of the amazing sights. I was blown away by the amount of succulents growing like weeds out there. I couldn't stop taking pictures and I'm sure a painting or three will come out of it. Laguna beach is were I was in heaven. What a unbelievably beautiful spot. I could have spent every day looking at the tide pools and succulents. I can't wait to go back. I was able to see some sea lions and Grey Whales too. What a treat!

P.S. Congratulations to the bride and groom!

Tailing redfish

 Even though the redfish tail has been painted over and over by many artists I couldn't resist giving it a shot myself. The redfish has been good to my family. It is the primary fish my husband (who is a fishing guide) fishes for. I would like to do some prints of a tailing red, maybe this will be the one.See more at my etsy shop.


Out Of The Blue- Tarpon

Having fun with this one. I don't want to be taking this all to seriously so I thought it would be fun to play around with the water. I kind of like the mix of realistic and more graphic.





Sunset Surf

It has been way to long since I have surfed. I am a real wimp when it comes to cold weather. If my teeth are chattering then it is no fun for me. So I guess if I can't surf then I'll have to paint waves to get my fix. I can't wait for summer!You can see more of my paintings here.




Amazing Art

These stunning paintings are by London based artist Amy Judd. Her skin tone on her subjects  is so beautiful. I love the  hidden eyes in each painting that are shielded by wings of some kind. These are breathtaking! Find out more about her here.










Happy New Year!!!

2014. Wow! I have a great feeling about this year. Its gonna be a good one. For me personally I really want to get serious about my art. I want to try new things and make prints and start getting the word out locally that I am an artist.These are a few words of wisdom I found on Pinterest I love. Lets all go big this year ! Who's with me?




Artist in the making.

I love children getting involved in art. This was sent into me by a 10 year old girl's proud Dad. She's got skills! Keep up the great work!




Trim the tree.

Our tree needed to get it's surf on, so I made a little paper wave garland. Now our collection of surfing santas have something to surf.


Studio Time.

In our new home I am lucky enough to have a great painting space. Its  been great not having to use the kitchen table for all my paints. I got a big stack of canvases during a great sale at Michaels and I love having lots of options. The world is my oyster!
