The Color of Tea



There is a science and an art to a good cuppa tea. Not an uncommon sight on my kitchen table, I love the tones of color brewed from various teas. Oils- 18" x 18"

Fairy Sisters


The benefits of childhood dance classes are the memories of playing in our tutus long after the recitals were over. Our wings were sheer curtains tied to our arms and we'd run through the yard feeling them flutter behind us like we were flying. I've recalled this memory with a variety of images through the years.

Ladybug


We call my mother 'Lady'. Why, has nothing to with ladybugs, but they are somewhat of an ID symbol for her. This one is actually part of a larger insect collage.
