Art for The Holidays! Dec. 5-6, 2015

"The Yellow Couch" (Reclining Women series, acrylic, 9x12")

Greetings friends and family,

Happy December!  As we prepare for the Holiday Season,  gift giving is one way to spread joy, and giving local original art is a lovely choice!
I have been eagerly preparing for four group art shows that I want to tell you about -- four community events to share my art with you.  If you have questions about anything, please ask!

 -- Unison Arts' 25th Annual Holiday Crafts Fair December 5-6, 10am-5pm.  This show features  gallery-quality handcrafted gift items: ceramics, jewelry, woodwork, wreaths, blown glass, photographs, and of course colorful paintings -- and much more, at affordable prices. This is a great opportunity to take care of your holiday gift list!   For more information, including a list of exhibitors, visit
At my display, there are oil and acrylic paintings of women, pets, landscapes, and flowers;  archival prints;  childrens' book;  greeting and holiday cards - some with fun new images!

"Cloud Shadows" (acrylic, 5x7")


If you are not local, I am happy to ship to you or your gift recipients for the holidays!

and then there are always ---
-- Portrait Commissions: I  always enjoy creating lively interpretations of special people, pets and objects in my clients lives, commissioned by them.  Here is a recent one called "The King Family Celebration on Hummel Road."   One family member has a birthday on July 4, so the Kings enjoy get-togethers on that day for a double celebration!
