Enjoying Some Time in the Glade

It’s been a while, so I thought I’d give you an update on what’s happening in my studio.

You probably know we’re amidst construction. It’s been going on for some time, now. But,  during a little break I got some great studio time and have been catching up on my Glade Collection. I was quite excited to be working on these paintings!     

                                              (This is the first Glade Painting – 12×12 “In the Glade”)

The Glade Collection focuses on simple, rural dwellings that remind me of a peaceful past and the stories and secrets older historical places keep. These paintings are conceived in a place of contemplative harmony. That’s why I was so eager to get into the studio and revisit the series!

Maybe you didn’t know I also work with my clients to create art that is specific to their needs. Commissions are a great way to get the size and palette you need for a special place in your home or office. .

To see more “fresh art” as I create it, follow me on Instagram and sign up for my monthly updates.  As always – if something resonates with you, send me a note. I’m also available for studio tours by appointment and every 2nd Saturday at ARTHOUSE, 1021 R. St. Sacramento, when many resident artists open their studios to the public. It’s a fun event. Come by and check us out! 

Keep Making Life Beautiful!
