I thought I'd look through my paintings to find the ones
that feature books or reading.
(Painting features daughter Megan and friend)
Over the years I have been inspired by the things that
I love, and they often come into my paintings.
Hats. The sea. Women in flowing dresses.
Flowers. Books. Dogs. Little birds.
people I know. Friends, children of friends,
my daughter ... which is why I can only
offer to sell prints of the paintings!
(painting features Sarah, friend Martha's daughter)
people that have graced my life,
and allowed me to photograph them
to use as painting ideas!
(model for this painting is Heidi)
Usually it is young women and children
that enter my watercolor or oil paintings.
But the gentleman below
I have painted twice.
Unrelated to me, a man who influenced my life
in my teenage years, who now resides in heaven.
Oh how he loved the Bible!
And what an impact this humble person's faith
has made on the world through his life
and his childrens lives, and his childrens children.
Generations still unfolding
who are touching others with God's love and grace.
Lover of God's Word.
my dear friend Sue?
And how many paintings have I done featuring you?
( ... we've been friends since teenage years ... )
Thank you for your patience for all those photography shoots!
who has graced my watercolor paper and oil canvases
since her childhood,
And whose little children now also inspire my art!

May you enjoy the beautiful spring weather this weekend!
It is probably quite noticable that my paintings and inspirations
come mainly from spring and summer!!!
Oh how I love warm weather and the beauty it brings!
