Started second in my new series. Sooo I either really sprained my ankle or fractured it Sunday. I was able to sketch/paint the layout with my foot propped up. I’m bumming big time. This oneis a blend of my second born and me. It’s hard to see but she’s sitting looking over her back

This Thanksgiving my family drove up to visit my sister and her family in Redding. We went up to see where our childhood houses burnt down in Old Shasta and the first one is on Victoria overlooking the valley. We visited the house we first lived in for over a year, before we moved into the one in Old Shasta which we were in s long time before my parents split, our dad still lived there but we hadn’t spoke since I was 19. The first pic is the property where our first house was. The elementary school I went to before 5th was saved. Which was across from our dad’s house. I was sick with a cold so I didn’t visit any old friends. I plan to come up more often. I miss it up there so much. In these pics where the sawdust is , is where the House was. The fireplace remains are off to the side. I took s brick to keep. I guess FEMA came through and cleared all the rubble. I debated on posting but then I realized my new work is inspired by this. My vulnerability as an artist is already out there. This is just the “back” story to it. Maybe it’ll help people to realize the truth behind my work. Well, recently anyhow. #oldshasta #redding #carrfire #forestfire #fire #california #hometown #rain #thanksgiving

48x48 abstract Portraiture Done

I’m varnishing the rework of my abstract portrait/koi piece. This took a long time to get that dimension. It’s one of my favorites now. I switched from Gamvar varnish to Golden UVF, this one needs solid UV protectant.

My gallery

my website gallery/portfolio is in desperate need of me loading about a years worth of new work. I’m hoping to do it this week. My blog has all the new work. Please be patient if you’re a gallery viewing my portfolio. I am a busy lady. Thank you 

Finished the rework of this 48x48 abstract Koi.Those who know me, know I’m obsessed with Koi fish. I have small ones but I love to go to the Koi Farm and just watch the big ones swim. So beautiful. Graceful.
