Floral painting comes easily to me. Flowers seem to have personalities and their traits bring to mind life analogies. When hope lights up in our soul, we are able to take the steps to healing from the many bruises life throws at us. Then we are able to push our way through the difficulties, emerging with new energy just as a plant pushes through the soil. Blooming is such a beautiful metaphor for our purpose and passions becoming known and showing the way to wellness for others.
I’m not concerned with realism in my work – I paint ideas, concepts, impressions. Therefore, you will see colors that may be off from reality and proportions or scenes that aren’t entirely natural. I can assure you, it’s on purpose!
At times I also paint landscapes and wildlife, including birds. Our home here in Montana gives me no shortage of subject matter to bring to the easel. Enjoy your visit!
