Feeling Good Music

I created an original piece for the Symphony. The piece titled “Feeling Good Music” and sized at 18 x 24″acrylic painting on Birchwood.  I planned a juxtaposed composition. I used three elements. A music stand, a piano and a violin.  To me, this is a visual interpretation of feeling good music. For instance, if you […]

Spider Cookies

I believe in signs. It’s a FUN way to get through life. So, when I see a spider crawl across something, I believe it is a sign that creative inspiration is on-it’s-way!!! To get things going in the creative inspiration department…I made these cookies. Bahahahahaha!!! And bonus? They are cute for Halloween… The cookies are […]

Flowers for Her…From Start to Finish

Pieces of a Birch Tree keep appearing near my front door.My friend, Renee told me that Birch wood is a Native American symbol of “new beginnings”.I felt compelled to use the Birch wood that came to my door. I cut out heart shapes and attached them to the backside of the Birch wood panels that […]

Make good choices…

You know that feeling you get in your gut when you first encounter someone or something? I call it intuition. Trust it. (I am always telling this to my daughter…trust yourself.) This is today’s Morning Sketch”…

You are Light and Love…

Message to my girls…everywhere. “Don’t ever doubt your ability, or the difference you are making, or the way you light up the world.” -MR I painted this image of a butterfly to remind us all that we are magnificent. We are beings of light and love. Keep on keeping on! xox lisA

Flowers for Her…Number 2

Flowers for Her…Number 2. Mom has this warm and happy way about her. If you stay with her for a while you will notice a certain twinkle in her green eyes… highlighted by her frosted blue eyeshadow. She wears make-up less and less these days and that is okay. Hopefully this bunch will help her […]

Land of Lincoln Girl

I’m from Illinois. My husband is a lawyer. I have a huge affinity for Abraham Lincoln. Tonight we are attending the President’s Ball for the Bar Association. I am donating this special painting. On the backside I wrote this famous Lincoln quote, “A lawyer’s time and advice are his stock in trade”. (And of course […]

Little Angel Artist…

I painted this portrait of Grace and her Dad. She was 11. She passed away this week. She had been suffering from Crohn’s disease. Her dad, Charles (Chuck) is my good friend. He was the best Dad he could be. I know this for certain. Heart wrenching. I can hardly bear to think of what […]

My painted Christmas Gift…

I love to paint portraits. Ever since I can remember I have loved painting portraits. In fact, Mom and Dad have a family portrait that I created as a child still hanging in their home.There is something about it that feels so natural to me. This Christmas, I struggled about what to give (the hardest […]

Burlap Fall Banner

I have been intrigued by burlap lately. So…I made this Fall Banner. It was way more difficult then it looks. I guess that’s because it is a mesh like surface and it soaks up tons of paint. I love the way it turned out. The fringe like edges give it a rustic feel. Happy Fall! […]

In the Gardens…

Every tuesday night in the summer is special in the Japanese Gardens. The breathtaking Anderson Gardens in Rockford, IL features live music and encourages guests to bring picnic baskets and lawn chairs.  In my opinion, it is a recipe for a perfect summer evening. In fact, I was so inspired I painted it! xox lisA  

Teacher Teacher

It is the end of the school year…and that means it is time to thank the teachers.   One of the things I miss most about teaching are all those end- of- the- year hugs!  That was always the best thank you gift of all. I created this piece for a card several years ago. […]

Stuga…studio?

Stuga is the Swedish word for cottage. Yesterday, on my search for the LF art studio… a friend took me to see this little Stuga nestled in the woods, near a rolling creek, secretly hidden in the web of my city. It is very tiny but it has a busload of charm and nostalgia. Look […]
