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.

I'm craving sunshine and we've had a little but I sure would like some more!

Thinking of how nice the warm sun would feel on my pale skin, this was a fun one to paint with the warm and cool colors and that bright green grass.

You always set up your figure in marvelous ways- the light and figure planes are gorgeous!

Mary, Karen, and Sherry: thank you for dropping by to tell me your encouraging words about my work. I appreciate it very much!

Very pretty! You've been busy, Diana!!

Haha, Diane! I have been intently focused primarily on making something new and interesting every day.

It's time now to catch up on doing the mundane stuff of the artist's life. I have to order supplies, prepare panels and do paperwork.
