Several years ago,  I joined an oil painting class called Studio in the Woods, and it was exactly that.  What a beautiful setting to learn to paint in oils!  Rustic setting amidst beautiful trees and nature in Long Grove, Illinois.


After we moved to Lexington, Ky, I continued to paint with the Lexington Art League and Betty Plymale.  


Then I became a realtor and it took over my life.


Now, being inspired by the beautiful pastels of Marianne McDonald, the wonderful beaches of Santa Rosa Beach, Florida and my now five Grandchildren, I am painting again.  Also, I am lucky Betty is still available to share her great knowledge of portrait painting.


I hope you are enjoying my paintings.  I am enjoying the process and the many subjects that I am painting.  The more I paint, the more i learn and I love that.
