The extravagance of the Peony inspired this large portrayal of their soft petals. I began with watercolor to capture the blooms. The painting was then mounted on a board with additional paper added for texture. Acrylic paint was then used for strong contrast to surround the blooms of “Pretty N Pink”.

The “Gorge”, formed thru violent eruptions and force, is a transformed landscape of awesome beauty. The sepia tones represent past times melting into the NOW. Not unlike the beauty of a transformed life in the hands of God.

“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.”
