Imagery comes to mind, then to paintbrush and on to canvas like the words to a favorite song. Resounding notes of color, expressive shapes and lively themes gather into animated stories. And one painting can develop into a concert. 


Starting with light brushstrokes and moving to heavier applications of paint, my ideas unfold one after another. 


In the series from my Santa Fe sketchbooks, bright-eyed bluebirds start to plan a party, dress up with some berries on a vine and come to the birdbath ready to gossip. More bluebirds wait eagerly for the funky

chocolate shop in Madrid, NM to “Open, Open.”


Ladybugs decided to hide throughout this series or hitchhike on a

hummingbird’s twinkling tailfeather.


Butterfly wings are illuminated in flight and shadows filter through the petals of hollyhocks. I couldn’t resist 

the sheer beauty of these tiny details. 

I included copper metallic backgrounds and iridescent pigments to enhance the COLOR, color, color…that sings and maybe even giggles!
