I am a self taught artist and have drawn and painted since I could hold crayons or a pencil in my hands..
My brain is an attic filled with treasures yet to be explored or recreated.. I am a Veteran,a wife, a mom, a grandmother, a sister, a daughter and a teacher!!! My pallet is full of life, color and energy.. I hope you will see and feel that in all of my artwork.

    This certainly has a refreshing feel linmarie! Beautiful work!

  • thank you so very much Jacqui… I am not normally a gal whom paints in blue hues.. but I knew my title for the piece before I even started it.. the blue colors for me.. represented water, or rain.. and the feel of cleansing…

    Fabulous technique Linmarie. Reminds me of Canna Lilillies. Beautiful.

  • Val.. this technique.. usually does come out looking like the Canna/Calla Lily’s… I have a few in spray paint art gallery… that did so.. this was my first time in years to try this with acrylics.. and my first time on canvas.. it was fun and challenging and I am pleased with the results… thank you so very much for your love and support♥
