I had an amazing opportunity to paint the winner of the Kentucky Derby for a pin company. This has been an incredible experience for me! Thank you Classic Pins! Check them out: Classic Pins. The original acrylic painting is on a 18×24 canvas.

My Version

So…. my niece (that is more like a sister I never had) asked if I would paint her a copy of Vincent Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night” for her classroom. I gave it a try, and this is my 24×30, acrylic “version” of Van Gough’s masterpiece.

Alas, I am no where close to his original in scale or details but it was an honest effort, and my niece was very happy!

Dear Iris

Here is something different! This 11×14 oval canvas piece is a combination of a paint pouring background and hand painted foreground of deep purple Iris flowers. I love the brilliant colors and contrast. As always, I am learning as I go, and I’m having a blast!


This is an 8×10 acrylic painting of my daughter Jessica that I created for her for Christmas.  She was quite surprised!

Even though this was my very first attempt of painting a portrait of a real person I am pleased with the way it turned out.


Searching for Sunshine

Searching for Sunshine was inspired while on a day trip to Gulf Shores, Alabama during the eclipse in August 2017. One moment the sky was dark and ominous – the next moment the sky was sunny and hazy.

This painting was created with acrylic medium on an 8×10 canvas.


Happy Hummingbird

I created “Happy Hummingbird” on a 20×24 canvas with acrylic medium.  This fun painting is very unique and has vibrant colors to catch the eye!
