Achievement comes from hard work.

Catch and Release
Framed 30 x 38
“Catch and release is how my husband fishes in Creede, Colorado. On a prime fishing excursion, he photographed the catch in a fishing net to show me his prize before the release. As an artist, instead of seeing his prize catch I saw the dimensional values, the opaque, translucent, and transparent qualities of the fishing net. The beautiful, large fish was of secondary importance to me.
Transparent watercolor medium was the only way to capture the beauty that caught my attention. Thus, I present to you ‘Catch and Release’; given to me by a fisherman but given to you by an artist.”
Framed 34 x 26″
“I spent my childhood visiting beaches along Padre Island in the Gulf of Mexico. I always thought of the sea gulls as beachcombers along with myself, my sisters and cousins who combed the beaches with me. When painting this scene of waves upon the shore, which are also known as “beachcombers”, I included the sea gull in memory of those wonderful days at the beach.”
Sunflowers and Grackles
Gallery Wrap 22 x 28″
Sunflowers are brightly colored and appear to be a happy subject. Here I combine the flowers with the birds. The birds move among the flowers searching for bugs and maybe a few dried seeds.
A Chameleon Investigates
Framed 24 x 34″
Oil on Canvas
The subject is a banana tree that grew in our backyard. We also had lots of little green lizards crawling around the foliage searching for bugs. I always enjoyed watching the lizards so I decided to paint one in the banana tree.
