This painting was a challenge, trying hard to project the fact that it was the moon, not just a round ball with lines going through it. My sister took this picture at night through the trees, I loved it. When I decided to paint it, I tried to show the different degrees of color, in gray tones.

The name comes from my childhood memories, not sure how or from whom my mom hear say this, but she would say when we saw the moon at night, "I see the moon and the moon sees me, God bless the moon and God bless me". I have repeated this to my children and my grand children as well. The painting is done in Oil on a 12 x 12 Gallery Wrap Canvas.


My latest watercolor, Symphony of Seagulls. This painting not only was from a photograph take by my sister Julia but not knowing, she named it! I had emailed her the finished painting and her comment was, I can hear the symphony of seagulls and the clashing and splashing of the salty sea against the sandy seashore! Might I say she is an awesome writer and photographer.

We love going to the beach, Cherry Grove, NC each year. Between us we probably could wallpaper every room in both our homes with beach pictures and still have left overs. Oh, but you can never capture the same movement, once you see it, its gone! Same with life, enjoy and treasure each and every minute.

Street Scene in Germany was from a photo when Steve and I traveled to Germany several years ago. What an awesome trip! So much to see and enjoy, all the beauty of the buildings, the food and the most impressive thing was just how clean, no trash on roadways, non along streets, no cigarette butts in all the different places we went. 
This painting is a watercolor, matted and framed and the size is 17 x 21 1/2.


This is one of my favorite flowers for the spring/summer time. Not only is it beautiful in the garden but just as beautiful planted in a pot. It comes in so many different colors, I really love the yellow. The painting is a watercolor, matted and framed, the size is a  17 1/2 x 21 1/2

Magnolias are one of my favorite flower blooming trees. They're tough fragrant trees with elegant beauty. The blooms release their sweet floral lemony scent for almost half the year. These trees have been around for millions of years. Magnolia fossils date back to Tertiary period, 100 million years ago. They were around before bees were, so they relied on beetles for pollination.

It took me a longtime to finish this painting! I painted several paintings and kept going back to it until I finished, glad I stuck with it, I went larger than I've done in a long time. Its in Oil, on a 16x40 Gallery Wrap canvas.


Love Cone Flowers! They are so unique with their heads held high and their petals remind me of a skirt! A beautiful addition to any garden. This painting is a watercolor and framed measures 19x17 1/2.


"Mom and Me" was a gift to my daughter Robbin for Christmas 2017. She has loved elephants since she was very young. It was so much fun to paint, loved each and every brush stroke.
