Welcome! For me, River Garden Studio, my journey as an artist, writer and teacher, is a place to celebrate creativity. Using words, photographs and art I am portraying a part of my world. Please browse through my entries, my photos and my paintings and perhaps be stirred enough to be more creative in your own world. Feel free to share your thoughts with a comment or to send me an email!
This large square painting is called "Beyond the Lace Curtians," consists of layer over layer of paints and mediums. I even used part of an antique place mat in the curtain. It is sold, but someday I would like to do another similar. I miss it!
I found this bench at an outdoor crafters fair. I attached a metal arch to it which I painted with a mixture of yellow ocher and burnt sienna. It sits in the flowers underneath a pear tree... I like to photograph still lives both inside and out.
Fresh flowers are always and inspiration. In the winter I get small bunches from the market. I collect colored vases and pitchers and enjoy the process of design and the way light plays on the image.
Welcome again and enjoy your visit!
