This Gullah woman is mending and listening to her radio. This is a small 6 x 6 inch painting on a substrate called Gessobord, which resembles masonite but with a coated surface that is quite receptive to paint! For more information on this painting, please click here.
A year ago I planted zinnia seeds right in our front yard and was amazed that I had hundreds of flowers, some as large as tea cups! I was able to paint 5 or 6 paintings of these flowers and for a while they became my favorite plants. This painting is 8″ x 10″. It is still available. If you are interested, click here.
This is another small 5 x7 painting on a canvas panel. These illustrations were inspired by a magazine article my husband wrote regarding the Gullahs in South Carolina. You can learn more about this painting by clicking here.
I saw many cactus flowers in Arizona and I remember a drink made from the cactus leaves. It is hard to believe that such thorny plants could have lovely flowers! To see more information on this painting go to my online art gallery by clicking here.
