I’ve been painting since 2002. I was captivated right away and have only put down my brush since when I’m forced to! Darn bills anyway :/ I also make demo videos and host my online teaching website. I’ve lived in beautiful Oregon for the last few years. The stunning landscape converted me almost entirely to a landscape painter! More recently I have moved to Portland and am in love with the history, energy and people of this beautiful city.

    I’m really impressed with the lighted veins in the foreground, however the whole piece is gorgeously painted.

  • Thank you Jim. This is actually one I did last year but I have spent the day learning how to format my images for iPads and I phones and T shirts so I added those. I also hadn’t realized my images were too small for anything but 8×10 prints! Maybe that explains the few sales! :)

    One of the fine human arts we need to rekindle; gardening food is so important now for
    everyone. Lovely focus.

  • Thank you Marriet, yes we would be better off to rekindle this art!
