Feeling the Coast

Here we are at the end of 2011 and one of my favorite places to visit is the coast. The Winter sand is cool and the clouds and sky are so inspiring.  I feel lucky to live in Northern California where we have such clean, beautiful beaches and headlands. I wish everyone the best in 2012 and hope we all get a chance to get to the beach or enjoy nature wherever we live.

Clean, Fresh Color

I recently had the privilege of visiting two of my paintings in a very nice home in the Bay Area. Ann Brown, the designer had filled the house with color. My impression when I left was that it was clean and fresh. It was such a nice change to see the beautiful oranges, yellows and blues after looking at all the grey and taupes that are so popular right now. It inspired my to play with color and there's a new collection in my Etsy shop fillled with happy, uplifting color.
