Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

Two New Cloud Paintings

If you follow this blog you probably know how much I love dramatic skies as a subject.

They offer constant challenges as well as plenty of interest, and promises of that certain something that gives a painting the "ooh-ah" factor.

Oh my yes, wonderful clouds indeed, Diana! It's always a pleasure to stop by and view your wonderful work!

Thank you, Click here, and David, for dropping by and leaving your encouraging words. Those mean a lot to me.

The immediacy of blogging is such a boost, especially to artists who typically work alone. We can show our art and get feedback even before it is framed and sent to a gallery or show. I love that!
