Etsy Shop

I opened an etsy shop! I just started it today and wow, it takes a long time to get everything up and running…one listing at a time, especially when you have a 14 month old under your feet. However, it gives me something new to work on! If you are interested in checking it out, I will have my small watercolors for sale on the site. Again, it is a work in progress and I’ll try to add new things as soon as I make them. 😉

If you come out to the Earth Day celebration on April 22, 2017….you can get some of these works at a discounted price, with no shipping and handling. Bonus! Its at the Fairhope Pier Park in Fairhope, AL and Renee Edwards (of Marnee Studio) and I will have a booth set up. I’ll post more as it gets closer so stay tuned. For more info on Earth Day, go to the following link It looks like Grayson Capps will be playing at 4:00 pm!

For now, check out my etsy site!

After an exhausting day exploring with my hubs and the kiddos, its nice to relax and work on this guy. Do you recognize the skyline yet?

Here is a little blue and green rose (requested by Norah) because her favorite color is “blue dark”.

Watercolor on paper.


Earth Day

I decided to start painting a little 6 x 8 flower every day, in honor of Earth Day coming up next month. Hopefully I can find time to stick with it!




The Waiting

“The Waiting” is an in progress work in which I am attempting to tackle the complex surface of what is called aquabord by Ampersand. I think that I am starting to figure it out and if it looks great sealed, it might be my go-to support from now on. No framing needed! Works out great for the artist and the buyer. 😉 Stay tuned for the finished product and if you feel so inclined, let me know what you think. Peace and love friends.


Wood Stork

Here’s what’s on the artist table today! Hello young wood stork! What a cutie.
