Pumpkin Beach is a fantasy island beach where these two "sirens" of the sea landed. The women are apparently made of sand, so it's not clear whether they are real or not. The fantasy landscape is partially abstract so it is not based on a real place, other than one of my favorite beaches, maybe in Mexico, maybe in Florida. This painting says Summer and Island more than anything I have done recently. Get some beach vibes with this lovely orange and blue seascape. This painting is acrylic with a simple black frame around the outside edges of the gallery-wrapped canvas.
Long ago in a galaxy not very far away, I was a talented child drawer. That morphed into a love of painting that I have had most of my life. I received a degree in illustration while in high school. Later I studied fine arts painting at a university and have been painting ever since. I paint mostly in acrylic and watercolors. I do portraits, landscapes, and abstracts, and occasional series like wildlife on abstract backgrounds. I'm very interested in environmental causes and often do paintings about those themes. I am now doing an ongoing abstract series based on astronomy, a long-time love of mine. I am originally from Minnesota. I have also lived in San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, North Dakota, and northern Minnesota. I don't really love to move, but I love to travel, especially to central America. Sometimes I interpret my travel photos later as paintings. I now live in the Atlanta Georgia area with my husband and cute dog. My studio is in my home so I can paint at 3:00 am if I want to, and yes, that happens. I'm a night owl painter, because for me, that's when the magic happens.
