We have been collaborating artists our entire married lives. Our work is always evolving. The experiences we share, or individually participate in, become a part of what we create. Bruce photographs and throws pots and I paint and create jewelry and other objects from precious metals. Bruce's photos are sometimes the inspiration or reference for my paintings and often times I sculpt and carve into his pottery. The results from our combined knowledge and skills becomes something beautiful that we enjoy sharing. Enjoy.

Here are six paintings starting a new series of small paintings. What do you think?
I've changed the size and subject of my work drastically and need feedback if you have
the time. I've always loved and respected Bruce's nature photography and have had these
photos stashed away for years. Frogs and toads have the greatest faces (if we're comparing them with animal traits!) and the small formats seem to me to fit together.

I think this is my favorite from your frog and toad series. I am really excited about the smaller format you are working on and I especially love the square shape of this one. It presents a new set of challenges when you push yourself to change direction and I think you are quite successful with it! I can't wait to see more and it will be even better to see them in person!
