Crazy Lady Series

I'm working hard to get ready for my first open house in 5 years!  Scheduled for Mother's Day weekend, May 12 and 13th, my time is limited, but I'm crunching in every minute so that this will be my best show ever!  I'm still enjoying paintiing cartoon-like ladies with abstract backgrounds.  This one is called , "The Morning After".  I teach this in many of my classes, and it's been a real hit! The finishing detail work is down with either colored pencils or colored markers.  I love doodling!  This painting will be a part of my martini and wine painting corner at my show.  I'm having the show professionally staged by a designer friend of mine.  So exciting! Hope you can all come!!!

Happy Easter!

Nothing says Spring quite as well as tulips popping through the ground, right?  My dad's favorite flower is tulips, so I always think of him when I paint them.  I'm preparing for an illusionary watercolor workshop that I'm teaching in Springfield, IL on April 13 – 16th.  There still might be a couple of openings if you contact Mary Selinski at this email:  We’ll be learning how to make objects look ghost-like, so we can see through them.  It took me about 7 years to perfect this technique, but now it's lots easier to do the magic transparent look.
