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.

3x4 inch paintings

I forgot to post these two little guys I did last week! Trying to get a little of my "compliments" back with the orange slice but not really sure if it works. Still working out a lot of wrinkles but I am so enjoying the viscosity of oils that its just a joy to paint once again.  Thank you "Oil Gods"!

newest painting

Working on my seventh painting since I switched to oils. Still loving it. I'm trying to paint larger and
am discovering that with it comes some problems but also some benefits. Sorting it all out. I'm so happy to be able to use my original palette from session to session and not have to remix all my colors over again. FYI, the background color in this painting is actually more on the warm side. It
looks very purple on the screen. I will be posting the finished painting before the end of the week.
Thanks for looking!

Osceola Cafe in Stuart Florida

  This is the quaint little cafe that Bruce and I go to for breakfast most Sunday mornings. The two woman who own the cafe invite artists to exhibit their work on a monthly basis. My paintings here are clearly not those of a typical Floridian painter! Once Linc and Bruce finished hanging the paintings, I had a flash of silent fear that they wouldn't be well received. It's been over a week now and from the feedback the cafe has gotten, I believe that fear was unfounded.........thank goodness!!!
 It's always a treat for me to see my work hung all together. My paintings are generally large (with the present oils being an exception) so hanging them together doesn't happen unless its in a gallery or venue like this. Thanks Beth!

Back to Oils Once More............

 4"x4" wood block     SOLD
   So here I go, I was anticipating many road blocks on the way and although I have many issues to resolve with composition and color and form-I'm just so darn happy to be able to push that wonderful paint around and smell the linseed and oil that I've just accepted the bumps in the road and kept going. Sheer joy!
 3"x4" wood block    SOLD
  So my thought here was to do a mini series of cherries with that luscious cadmium red.......I can't stop now!
10"x14" gallery wrapped canvas
  This was the first painting I did with oils. I kept debating with myself over subject matter and then decided to rely on my favorite subject of apples. If it was good for Cezanne it's good for me, right?
