The world is her rainbow


I love being creative and that extends beyond painting. For my youngest daughter’s 21st birthday, I wanted to “color her world”. So I baked her a six layered, rainbow colored birthday cake. I wanted her to know she has a a full prism of possibilities before her. Happy birthday sweetie!

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall


Painting a self-portrait is hard. You have to get past that knee jerk reaction to paint out your wrinkles or┬ádrop the extra 10 pounds (20, 30, or more) when painting yourself. One method to get past this is to abstract your self-portrait. Concentrate instead on using new funky colors, disproportionating your body parts or leave your face as a blank oval. Who’s going to notice a few flaws with all that going on! Here’s my rainbow self-portrait, saggy eyelids and all.
