Title or Location: Come, Everyone Who Thirsts
I started this piece sitting in the hospital waiting room, waiting on a friend. I was contemplating those in unfortunate circumstances and in need of hope, and I was reminded of this passage in Isaiah 55:1-3 in the Bible. I often combine my love for watercolor and lettering with my contemplations of what I read, painting in my Interleaved journal Bible.

Title or Location: Elephant
I drew this in white and gray color pencil on black card stock. The reference was a photograph on Penterest (no photographer listed). I love doing what I refer to as shadow drawings for several reasons. One being that I can express myself artistically without tiring my arthritic hands. ( I?m 82) and another being it induces the viewer to use thir imagination!

Title or Location: Owl
I?ve always sketched, mostly animals and attempts at portraits of people, which have always been hit or miss. I?ve recently taken up woodburning and some of the animals and other things I?ve done with that medium are among my favorites. Currently, I?m working on incorporating epoxy to some of the burns and after some learning curves, figuring it out.

Title or Location: A Place to Breathe
I wanted to create a place of tranquility and quiet. A retreat into nature where you can take a moment to breathe. There is a hush over the valley. The storm is over and the water quietly continues on its way much as it has always done. It is here I invite you to stay for a moment or two and rest.

Title or Location: City of Canals
An experiment using soft pastels on stretched canvas. The texture of the canvas lent itself to the pastels quite well. The image is based on a photo taken by a friend visiting Venice, Italy. By using more vibrant colors than the original, I believe it became more magical.

After taking up mandala painting in my late 60's during lockdown I decided to experiment using fabric scraps withing the design. This is the result of my first try. I am going to expand on this idea in the near future once I obtain more fabric scraps.

Title or Location: New beginnings
I'm new to oils and painting, I would say my style would be fine art and surrealism, no rules and I can escape, experiment and have fun. I painted this scene as I'd came across a beautiful photo of calla Lilly valley in California, I use the idea but made it my ownwith the colours and changed parts of it, I like the perspective and the enchanting mysterious vibe it gave. Returned to art almost a year ago, still finding my way, but determined, excited and fully motivated to reach my potential,

Title or Location: The Boats at Sunset in Bradenton
I was at The Starfish Restaurant when I captured this view on a cold day in Bradenton Florida from the dock behind the restaurant. I was fascinated by the light coming from one of the boats and the gas pump. The photograph helped me to produce this oil painting when I got home in Ohio.
