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.
A selection of my original Figurative and Landscape Paintings may be seen at Tidewater Gallery, Swansboro, NC.

I'm an artist, wife, mother, and grandmother living and working in beautiful Idaho. I've been making art most of my life. My career has encompassed opportunities in commercial art, custom murals, portrait painting, teaching, and writing about art. I'm pleased to say that my work has been honored with regional and national awards, corporate and museum purchases, and numerous private commissions.

This was a fun project which lasted nearly five years. I started with a small group of blog artists and once a month, we took turns naming a challenge to paint. Below are links to each month's efforts. Our little group changed members from time to time.
