I'm Looking For A Good Home

This is a watercolor picture I painted of Teddy Bear, who is available and looking for a new home (as his "I'm Available" tag shows). I had so much fun doing these and I created different tags for my friends and customers.


This is an old family photo of my sister, Vanessa, and I. It was transferred onto silk, and I then painted around the photo adding lace, etc. It is quite large and is in a frame, with other family photos, on a wall in our home. My sister and I travelled to England together years ago. I have many fond memories of that trip, the things we saw and the people we met.

A Rose by Any Other Name

These roses were created with bread dough and glue, with several shades of paint mixed in. These were air dried and have been in a glass cabinet for years. I used roses from our garden to copy in color and form. I have decorated many items with bread dough roses over the years, and a friend even had me create a cake top for her daughter's wedding. Fun and rewarding!
