Welcome to my 9th year of original art. I have grown as an artist this past year by introducing myself to oil paints on canvas. I still love working with pastels and watercolors and my inspiration still comes from being a gardener and grandmother. Sometimes I surprise myself and come up with a subject matter out of the blue which is a good thing for creativity. I started this album with flowers because it's January in Wisconsin and I am missing COLOR. I look forward to what this year will bring to my art world and I hope the viewer will enjoy my journey also.
