"Ana" - 8 x 8 inches - oil on canvas - SOLD

"Ana" - 8 x 8 inches - oil on canvas

This sweet little kitty is named Ana.  I knew Ana when she was a wee, bitty kitten -- she was constantly in motion always chasing bugs and yarn and anything else that wiggled across the floor.  Ana has since moved to Florida and is enjoying a more mature, peaceful existence.  I'm told that she still acts like a kitten sometimes but now spends most of her time enjoying a good cat nap.

"La Tourelle Gazebo" - 6 x 6 inches - oil on canvas

Last weekend I was off to Ithaca, NY to reunite with a group of college friends.  The Finger Lakes area of New York state is beautiful with rolling hills, wineries and dramatic gorges with waterfalls.  We stayed at "La Tourelle" - a lovely spot that included several gazebos and a koi pond on the grounds.  I wanted to paint this particular gazebo because of the large, colorful flowers.  Below is a picture of just one of the many waterfalls in Ithaca.

"Voila" - 8 x 8 inches - oil on canvas
I just finished taking a 3 day painting workshop with Dreama Tolle Perry.  She is not only an amazing artist but is also kind, generous, funny and a whole lot of fun to hang with for a few days.  I am energized and ready to get back to my palette with a new sense of purpose and a couple new tricks up my sleeve.
