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.

the tootsie pop process!

 Not quite done yet but the big issues are resolved! I will be adding more printing on the wrapper and more highlights. Painting the edges since it won't be framed. Oil on boat canvas, 12'x24'
The "model"
I began by blocking in my basic colors

Next, I started adding basic details and brightened up the background color
Adding more details and begin shading and working background more

Inspired by Music

I began music lessons at age 7 and continued to age 14. This conclusion seems to co-inside with my discovery of "boys"! I did however continue my love for music and sang in the All City Choir through out high school. College years were consumed by my art but a music course here and there kept me involved. Fast forward, and I do mean "fast", to present day and the accordian I once loved and guitar are long gone. I do continue to sing, however I'm not going to gloat over that!!!!!
  So, I decided to create some music with silver and this is what I've come up with. I would love to know what you think if you have a minute to go to the bottom of this post and "comment". Thank you.
