Traditionally, Fine Art has been created using Traditional Mediums, partly meaning not created digitally. I use traditional mediums including: oil painting, pastel, collage, mixed-media, colored pencils, egg tempera and acrylic painting. I have dabbled in water color and pen & ink but I am still learning them (as, of course, I am still learning the others).
As with most of my other work, many of these pieces are still whimsical. The Hideaway was painted with pastels. I think of Peter Pan when I see this.

I call this The Power of Love and Underground. I created this piece after my Mom and my 18 year kitty both passed on to Heaven. They were (and are) both key components in my life. This is a tribute that our love knows no boundaries or time nor space – that it is timeless and eternal. All those hearts show my love in the hills and valleys of life.

Inside and Out is another pastel that I created. I used the pastel on black paper and you can see some of the black background peeking through. I love the creamy feel of pastels as I smear them to create a “canvas” to work on. That is one of my favorite parts!

Arriving is also a tribute to my Mom and my kitty. This shows the party that they threw when my kitty arrived in kitty Heaven. They were delighted to see him … and he and my Mom are happy now and they keep watch over me until I join them.
