To my dear loved ones.

Our favorite holiday is tomorrow!  Over and over we thank God for our beautiful family and friends.  We thank Him for their smiles that warm our hearts, for their eyes that sparkle with health, for their goodness to others, their gentleness and kindness, and for their listening.  They are like a soothing rain on my soul, and sunshine on our backs.  They are like rainbows that color our lands.  These are our treasures.

22" x 28"  watercolor   framed   $1250.00.  Finished frame is 35" x 31"  Free Shipping

Hi my cute elves, 
Since it it is almost Christmas, I thought I would write to all of you who are puzzled about what gift to get your loved ones. 
 Did you know that this painting would be perfect for a den or dining room in a log cabin or in a modern green white and turquoise bedroom like mine?    This color scheme is already developed for you.
Just say the word and you can pay by pay pal and I will happily get it beautifully wrapped up in a sturdy box, complete with  padding and sen it to you. I had so much fun putting in all the little surprise puzzle doodles just for you and I know you will love them too.  This painting will be hanging at Cottonwood Gallery in Colorado Springs through January.
What are you waiting for?  
I can also have prints made for you.

Wooly Face

7.25" x 10.75"    watercolor    $125.00

Dear lambs,

My sheep know My voice.....knowledge puffs up but love builds up......He leads me in green pastures.....

We wander, we get ourselves in ruts and guess who gets us out of the ruts?  He moves us to a part of the pasture where there are lots of good things to eat.  I know who he is, because he has always been my shepherd.  Because of Him  I sleep in peace.  I am one of His many lambs and my Father loves me best!

The Cleansing Wave Froth

18 x 24"  acrylic on deep canvas   $350.00  sea

Hi everyone!  Do you enjoy the sea?  The sound of the crashing waves, the roll back and wet sandy beach, the feeling of salt spray on your body?
This is a very spiritual, cleansing painting.  A bit abstract, a bit contemporary.  

Every drop, every splashy frothy blast of sea foam comes down in seconds.
Beady eyed crabs, mussels,  and tiny crustaceans grab on tight to their rock of choice.  
Water is powerful.  Water is the sign  of the holy spirit at baptism. We die to ourselves and become clean of heart and Jesus' child forever.
We experience this tumultuous life at times, forgetting that it is okay to let go and let the waves wash us again, bury us and let us float, sputtering to the top with a new life and forgiveness, joy, and grace.
