In a busy house with 3 kids and 4 dogs (yes, FOUR dogs!), painting is my sanity saver. I love the time I get to spend at my easel with the Dave Matthews Band "station" playing on Pandora and the pastel dust flying. I mostly like to paint people, animals, and the beautiful Florida outdoors, but I'll paint pretty much anything that catches my eye. Here are a few of my recent paintings.
