Back topainting the •WRECKED• series. I wanted to give this one a sort of memory feel.Since it is between young me and Sahara (the horse we were supposed to get when I was little. Wrecked is my memoir (I’ve been writing my story along with each piece) it’s a story of renewal, refined by fire literally and spiritually. The fire that took my hometown forced me to deal with stuff I pushed away for 20 some years. I’m a very private person so opening up is incredibly difficult. I just hope I can help someone. It also showed me my love for my hometown. God put meand my family there for a reason. The trees, the mountains, the people got us through a hard time. I think for me saying goodbye to the trees I loved so much was worse then the house. I still pause when I hear the wind through the tall trees in Long Beach. #wrecked
The two pieces will be at the Mezz Gallery in the Montalban Theater in Hollywood from 11/16-1/31. I will be at the opening reception for the group show Friday the 16th 6pm

Slight retouch of this koi 48x48, added in more dimension and bright contrasts. I like to think the koi I lost last month are living inside this piece. #abstractart #abstractthought #koi #contemporaryart #modernart #art #decor #gallery #exhibitionseries #americanartist #japan #largeart
Added gold leaf to the outer edges
this is a new ballerina I started
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'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.

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.
