I have always appreciated works of art and dreamed of painting my own one day. Wearing my "rose colored glasses" I seek to see the bright side of life. Mother Nature's beautiful works are what inspire me the most. Photography, my second love, enables me to see the world in a "fine tuned" way while providing me reference material for my paintings. Sharing feelings thru art, be it serious, fanciful, or just plain fun, evokes many responses from people as we all see things differently.
