Hello… It has been a loooong time since I’ve posted anything. New job and relationships take up a lot of free time. Here are some artwork that I have been working on while I was gone.
This year I was able to spend my Thanksgiving week in Punta Gorda, Belize. There, I met twenty-eight of the most beautiful children ages 2 – 16. Most of them are called Walk-Abouts because they have no supervision at home. Our team of twelve were able to spend time with them, love them, and provide some children’s ministry. This portrait is of Michael, one of the quiet ones who love drumming and have the most beautiful eyes.
I was also able to do some quick three minute portraits for the kids to keep.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted any art. But here is my latest collaboration with Nate the Great.
When I was a little girl, I came across two violins from the days when my father was a young man. I’ve always wished he would play them again and teach me how to make the strings sing in a bright, sparkling, and lively way.

I’ve always loved the sound of the cello but am too undisciplined to learn to play it. (That’s why I picked up the electric bass.) The cello’s full and sonorous tones reminds me of the ocean.

With a scorching week of triple digit temperatures, everyone is wanting to visit the pool.
As a second entry for the Alameda County Fair, I created a portrait of my sister and her one-and-a-half-year-old daughter. Since my little niece loves to hug animals, I included an Alaskan racing pig because the little oinkers are so darn cute. Not only that, he is my painting’s ticket for eligibility for the fair. The white camellias represent perfected loveliness, which speaks for all three figures.
This is one of my finished artwork for this year’s Alameda County Fair. Now off to my second painting.
This month, I am working towards showing at least one painting at the Alameda County Fair. The only glitch is that it has to tie in with this year’s theme, which is: Fair 101, Food, Family, Fun. So what I am showing is a small piece of a painting that I’m still working on. My vision is to have five carousel animals coming to life: a rabbit, a frog, a swan, a dog, and a horse. I have two more weeks so I best be getting a move on.
