Geisha #3 in the morning light. She’ll always be one of my favorites. Available for exhibition/purchase
I’m seeing red. Don’t think you’ll see my face again. Don’t have much time for sympathy. ‘cause it never happened to me. -lyrics by Unwritten Law....
It was a red day for me. So this big boy is HEAVY. It’s an old one which has a ton of pumice stone medium mixed in. Probably weighs 10lbs. Not sure what I’ll do next. It’ll come to me-always does.
Taking this 60x48 and popping all the images. Leftover paint pallet can go to waste...then work on an old one. #streetart #illustration #popart #painting #koi #modernart #contemporaryart #edgy #artist #art #decor #gallery #la #longbeach #interiordesign
I added in sheer violet. Heavy body paint ratio 1/2 paint to 1/2 Golden Gel medium. If you don’t have retarder you’re going to need to wet it down often as the gel dries fast I went around the Red and magenta borders with the violet to soften. Inner corner eye, bottom lip, outer rim of nostril, chin-then swipe down. Added violet around blooms. Over the whiteadded in water to my brush. Once I varnish it will really pop the colors #cherryblossom #cherrytree #geisha #modernart #art #painting #drawing #gallery #japan #americanartist #decor #interiordesign #arttutorial

Good amount of work today on my 60x48 Koi Pond
Since my obsession with geometric linear art is overtaking me, I pulled one of my Geishas down to add in linear accents. Just started, more definition to come #geometric #lineart #geisha #modernart #interiordesign #asianart #painting #art #gallery
My collectors who commissioned the large ballerina paintings commissioned two 48x30 cherry Blossom panels for their beautiful home.
Textured blooms and branches
I did an alcohol pour for the background then contrasted where needed
I'm doing two cherry Blossom panels for one of my collectors. They're the owners of both the ballerinas
I've severely neglected posts on my blog. My girls we're home and we have a new Airdale Terrier puppy named Boe keeping us busy. My nephew and his beautiful bride were married. We flew our daughters to Seattle for my birthday, then drove down to Eugene, Oregon for th wedding. The blue painting below is their wedding present from us.
Large 48x36 textured Gold Nebula work in progress
My baby girl is loving my drop cloth
Thought I was done. Nope. I'm done now40x36 commissioned #cherryblossom . Edges continue with the vines
Said goodbye to two of my paintings this past weekend. I love these pieces so it's was extremely hard.
Commission 36x36. Based on my 48x48. The collector loved the larger one but didn't have the space. Thick textures on the blooms
And these are my old yucky floors. My husband installed new ones. Now the kitchen is next.
Flesh tinted glaze and ice blue tinted glaze. Small addition...HUGE impact!
Need to add in more spidered branches
2nd day in working on two Cherry blossom pieces . Adding in more blooms on top, plus adding in glaze tinted color contrasts to tree and blooms, will add in more spider branches and buds. #workinprogress #painting #cherryblossom #modernart #asianart #interiordesign #art

I've been a busy woman. Working on 7 of the Geisha Series. Add in being a mom, I've horribly neglected updating my site. In the next few days I'll be revamping it with the new direction I am taking with my work. I am focusing on figurative and portraiture with a modern mix up. I can still take commissions based on previous work. Here's a glimpse of the new 48x48's. They do have finished edges, but a floating frame could work nice.
