I glimpse into my life....

A pen and ink piece i did to work out the details of my anniversary invitation....
I am inspired to do more silhouettes.

In memory of my niece Kacey(my daughter Michelle on the left and Kasey on the right) who was killed in a car accident heading back to college after Thanksgiving break in '07
she was only 18.....

This was the last photo I took of her.
I think of her every day

A few more inspirations closer to home...

Great colorful glass mosaic inlaid in marble. Wynn hotel in Las Vegas

More ispiration from Italy

This was the view from my hotel balcony in Sienna. No one can see these characters from the street below in fact the only people that can see these guys are the guests that stay in these few rooms.
They seem so less dignifyied with the pigeon "pooh" on their heads.....they seem to have a bit of a sense of humor though.

I am not big into popes but I thought this was the kindest carved face I had seen in all of Italy!
Is'nt pope John Paul?

What a body and I love the crown of thorns (bird inhibitor)

You will be seeing these blackberries in an upcoming painting. They were the only ones I could find still on the vine in late October.

Inspiration in Italy

This was a beautiful shell arrangement in a georgeous hotel in Rapallo. The coral was just spray painted sticks. Great idea!

The views from the unfinished church in Sienna are unrivaled in their breathtaking beauty .
This is a romantic picture of two Vespas having an intimate moment in Sienna.

For such a small store, what a stunning display of color and texture.

Ideas for my future stillifes

I am currently working on a series of
stillifes and I love these objects and colors.
I had to hurry and photograph these fruits before
they were no longer available.
