This is a blog to share my love of painting and drawing. Daily practice isn't always possible, but it remains the best way to make consistent progress.

Best Friends (Woody and Buzz, Two Yellow Labs) - 9" x 10" Pastel
Everyone who knows me knows that I love dogs, and that I have a Sheltie named Trixie. But if I didn't have a Sheltie, maybe I'd have a Lab...you gotta love 'em! These two handsome guys belong to my friend Lori.
I spent hours drawing and painting alongside my artist dad when I was a kid. Then, art took a back seat to school and career.
One day, an article about daily painters inspired me to start painting again. Each day, I'd post a new small work on this blog ... sometimes at midnight!
I'm happiest when I'm in front of an easel, and now -- newly retired -- I'm painting and blogging again.
One thing I've learned: this Is a never-ending journey! But whether a painting turns out well or not, there's no better feeling than standing back, seeing what you created, and sharing it with others.
I live in Westchester, NY with my husband, and a rescue dog named Sam. Occasionally, our grown kids camp out here, too.
Thanks for visiting!
