Discovery Center Museum Stops by for an Interview

On March 28th, 2016 the Discovery Center Museum stopped by for an Artist Interview. I am working with them on a collaboration for a new exhibit. I am very passionate about the Museum and their tremendous and positive effect on young people.

WONDERFUL Times Ahead!

NEW this year…and one of my favorites. I love the wood grain effect I painted in the background. I love the sparkly lettering. Ahhhh. Hmmmmmm. So pretty.

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 […]

Mom, I picked you some flowers…

Growing up, I lived close to a grocery store. I remember clearly, the store had a neat little floral shop attached to it. I remember Mother’s Day preparation included a trip on my banana seat bike to that store to purchase some special flowers for my Mom. I took what little money I had, mostly […]

My New Year Wish Tree

I hosted some friends and family on New Year’s Eve. Earlier that day, I asked my Dad what he remembers from his youth about New Year’s Eve. And he said he remembered putting out fresh fruit as a symbol of good things to come in the new year. So…. in Dad’s spirit, I filled a […]

Happy New Year’s Eve

A shinny new year is upon us once again …and I can’t wait! Mom would always request I play the song, “Auld Lang Syne” on New Year’s Eve. I would say, “Mom, what does it mean?” She would say it means “Oh long ago. Share a drink with friends and celebrate your friendship”. I like […]

City Sidewalks dressed in FROSTY style

Once again I was asked to paint the town. The mission: “To paint the windows for all the city to enjoy at our Convention and Visitors Bureau in downtown Rockford”. The Frostettes and I braved the cold day (Nov 22 and 23rd). Our paint would literally freeze on our palettes and to help us get […]

We Belong…Frosty Fashions

Last year, I received a request for local items. Items with a local connection but still with a Frosty Flavor. I started my mission by creating a coffee mug. I painted a whimsical scene of my hometown and superimposed it onto a mug. I named it “We Belong in Rockford, Illinois”. I launched the sale […]

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! […]

Favorite Team Pumpkin

I like painting pumpkins. It makes them last longer. My community, family and friends is sports crazy! So I thought no better sports team to cheer than our beloved Chicago Bears. 1. Sketch out your design on paper 2. Paint a coat of primer or gesso and let completely dry 3. Sketch your design on […]
