I was contacted Friday by a woman who found me on Etsy and she commissioned me to paint this landscape of the Washington Monument.  It is going to hang in her DC office's conference room.  I'm hoping the employees get a lot of enjoyment out of it!  They can daydream while enjoying a little piece of my art.

I sold all three of these paintings yesterday on Etsy!  Yeah.  They are going to Dallas, Texas for an art auction to help cancer victims.  I'm so pleased that my little pieces of art will have new homes and benefit a worthy cause.

I'm in week 5 of my on-line Dreama painting course.  I really feel like I"m learning so much.  I think my colors are more vibrant and my strokes more deliberate.  This one turned out so good!  The flowers are singing and the jar is gorgeous.  I'm so happy.  Now I have to figure out how to translate this technique into my landscapes.  I will keep working.  Let me know what you think.  It's for sale in my Etsy Store.

I started an on-line painting course by Dreama Toll Perry a few weeks ago.  This is the second painting!  I really love her technique of using transparent colors to block in the drawing and then go back with opaques and layer on top.  They are so vibrant.  I'm practicing the technique with my landscapes as well.  Having fun!  Available in my Etsy store.

I've sold two Bald Head, Island North Carolina paintings in the last couple of weeks.  This is the second one.  Seems to be a popular place so I decided to paint another one!

The lighthouse on Bald Head Island is called Old Baldy.  I'm not sure why but it's one of the landmark's on the island.  I've sold two paintings of Old Baldy so far so I thought I would paint a new version with spring flowers.  Hoping this one sells quickly too!
