This is a quick study of the painting. I wish I had the likeness better, but it was a learning experience in my journey to learning portraits.

Title or Location: Resolute Spirit: The Portrait of Harriet Tubman
Born from a realization that many people are unfamiliar with the full extent of Tubman?s legacy, this realistic oil painting aims to shed light on her life and the profound impact she had. Tubman, most celebrated for her role in the Underground Railroad, embodies the very essence of courage and resilience, traits I sought to capture in this portrait.In creating ?Resolute Spirit,? my intention was to offer more than just a visual representation it was to weave the story of Tubman?s bravery a

Title or Location: ?Gratitude?
I am calling gratitude into my life. Time to ?stop and smell the roses.? Time to acknowledge the good before the ?bad?, and to understand that the bad is necessary. Since going to therapy and learning that I?ve been living life in a traumatized body, and that this is not just ?who I am? I?ve been angry. A lot of things done to me were out of my control, as I was a child. I can?t hear loud noises/voices without jumping and experiencing immediate fear. Someone can?t reach out to touch me without

Title or Location: Self Portrait
I'm a visual arts teacher I created a lesson that focused on Frida Kahlo. We talked about her portraits and how her self-portrait reflects her culture. I told the students they would have to create a portrait representing them. So I created this example so they would know what I expected.

Title or Location: Fantasy get Away Located in Orange Virginia
The owner told me that she wanted something fun, relaxing, and beautiful to adorn her shed. She pointed out the she especially hated the electric meter. About 1/2 way across painting on the shed, she came out with ice tea and asked if I could also include the Blue Ridge Mountains. So, I made the building end (made a corner) and then added some blue ridge mountains off in the background. Finished product has feelings of Greece with Blue Ridge mountains, making it a true fantasy piece!

Title or Location: Time for Reflection
I saw a similar piece somewhere and decided to try this style as opposed to charcoal portraiture. Oils on canvas. A very different path to choose. But I'm loving it so far.

Title or Location: Pine River, Vallecito, Colorado
I painted this recently from a photo I took during a Friends Weekend several years ago. We stopped our bicycles on the bridge and snapped a few photos. The icy cold water was a brilliant blue from the mineral content. The Pine River flows into Vallecito Lake near Bayfield and Durango.
