The playful ease of drawing and painting this was so much fun. I am a garlic lover and that seasoning finds its way into all my veggie dishes so one day I decided to paint something I love and this is the results. My son and daughter-in-law fell in love with this painting so it now has a home gracing their wall, in their new home, in Folsom California. So this one I get to visit often.
Pillow of Garlic

This was an inspiration when walking Sofie on the island one morning and spotting a new growth of sunflowers emerging from behind a fence. They had so much energy that I could not resist charging in with bright strong colors.
I have selected to delve into the world of art in the fourth chapter of my life. I have always enjoyed art museums and the variety of interesting ways people express what they feel or see. My background is in finance and politics so this endeavor is a wonderful departure and enlightening experience. I truly enjoy the learning process. There is so much to understand and express through this medium. For now most of my work is in watercolors, a bit of mixed media and some acrylics. I have found this is a great way to network with other artists and share my work with friends. Please enjoy my work and watch it evolve.
