This piece was done during a Jeannie McGuire workshop. Her painting just won the Gold Medal of honor award at the AWS annual show. I really enjoyed trying some new techniques..she piles on the pigment, using opaque and transparent colors...using large flat brushes and putting paint down and taking paint away. It was an eye opening experience and made me experiment and try new things...(like titanium white!)

(15"x17") This is a painting I did in May during an open studio event. I have so many photographs of different flowers, that I can paint any blossom any time of year...which is kind of nice..since our winters here in Vermont are 9 months long! well sort of, not really, but long enough!

This sketch is from my kitchen journal and shows that not all sketches have to be "glamorous"...This was a quick sketch of the pots, pans and cookie sheet after they were washed sitting on top of the stove..The perspective leaves something to be desired..but alas it's pen on paper which equals practice.
