Studio Exhibition & Sale Opens November 18

50 Watercolors 50 Oil Paintings inspired by my retreat in Tuscany

Living in the tiny hilltop village of Poggio Alla Croce for two months, I have been able to focus on painting. Exploring color for the pure pleasure of feeling its flow and vibrancy is a treat. I hope you will join me in my studio in Cobbs Creek, Virginia. Come experience the color and joy of a retreat in Tuscany!

Live to Paint

Colors of the lights over Florence twinkle. Like a jeweled necklace, she sparkles along the western horizon. I stand with my coffee in the dark studio trying to memorize the hues in the sky above her.

How would she even fit on a canvas, I wonder? The mountains embracing her stretch as far as I can see. Up to the moon in the south, tree silhouettes stilletto the ridges.

A few low wispy clouds catch golden light from her glow. Hanging above them, a shadowy mist.

When I first came to Tuscany I painted to live. Now I live to paint.
