Took a few pictures of this wonderful bee at the Starved Rock State Park. She wasn't bothered by my camera much. I knew right away it would be an inspiration for a painting.
My artwork reflects whatever I'm inspired by at the moment, whether it's nature or people. There is a lot of beauty all around us and I try to capture that with my paintings. Although I enjoy painting pretty much any subject, lately my work has been mostly portraits. I paint in many different mediums. I love the luminosity and transparency of the watercolors. The directness of pastels is also wonderful; it almost feels like an extension of my hand. Majority of my late work has been with pastels just because I love the vibrancy of the colors so much. Please contact me for commissions. I would love an opportunity to do a custom painting for you!
