It was our last day in London, and we were strolling around the Picadilly area. As I walked out of one of the shops, I caught this amazing scene of the Royal Academy of the Arts. There was an impressionist art exhibit happening with a large banner advertising the event. I loved how the double-decker bus arrived at the right time. The red flag swaying also added to the fun of this picture.

This is what makes travel fun. When you walk around the corner, you never know what you'll see...and sometimes they are moments which take your breath away.

Most of us are captivated by beautiful imagery in our daily life: a vibrant sunset, a beautiful piece of architecture, a garden. And yet, with our busy lives, we don’t always have time to enjoy what we already have in our surroundings. I am an artist living in San Diego, painting for over 20 years. My daytime profession is in healthcare, but my artful spirit calls me to create on a regular basis. I began experimenting with oil paints as a young teen. In college I continued my endeavors with various media, and accomplished the equivalent of a Minor of Art in college. After college I pursued a graduate degree in psychology, yet still I continued painting. I have apprenticed under Tetrachromat Artist Concetta Antico in San Diego. Through her instruction, I became the oil painter and artist I am today. In spite of my day job in healthcare, I am regularly compelled to paint and share meaningful images with others in my own colorful and playful style.
