Work in Progress

I started on this abstract marsh painting this week. When I walked into my studio with my cup of coffee this morning, the light was creating interesting effects on the painting. It helped me figure out what I want to do next! Thanks sunshine...

History Project

A dear friend at the History Place in Morehead City called me last month to ask for help. The person who was planning to create one of their murals for an upcoming exhibit had a family conflict and couldn't do it. I agreed to help out... Turns out it was a mural to depict World War I as part of a series on Carteret County's contributions during the wars. Not my usual cup of tea, but after some thought I came up with the idea of using poppies, in a tribute to the veterans of the war. I also incorporated the poem by John McCrae "In Flanders Fields...." Here's a shot of the work in progress. The show opens next Friday, January 27.

A new year...

...has begun at Crosswinds. The sunrises in the January mornings have been spectacular. True inspiration for a new year of creative endeavors.
