Acrylics on canvasboard


Tulip shapes often emerge in my paintings. They are said to symbolize perfect love

A Rabbit's Eye View Of The Tulip Field

Many layers of delicious color, painted on canvas board, mixed with clear gel medium, sealed with an unobtrusive, archival uv-filtering varnish to protect the colors and surface from light and dust.
I enclose a signed certificate of authenticity with each


of my paintings. This is a true original painting lovingly painted by me in my studio in Oregon.


I love the poetry of color and the physicality of the paint, whether it's thick or fluid. It's always colors that move me and there is an adventure of discovery, of seeing how they look on the painting surface and I work to place them so an energetic balance is achieved in combination with the deliciousness of the pigments.


The acrylic paints I use are made by Golden in New York. This employee-owned company inspires me with its commitment to quality and your and my assurance that the paints in the painting you enjoy have excellent light fastness and materials, are made ethically and in work conditions we want for ourselves.
