I have painted and sold my artwork since 1962. I worked exclusively in oils for many years before discovering watercolors and pastels. The style that I use, and medium chosen, depends on the subject matter and the effect I'm striving to achieve. I meet with friends two mornings a week to paint. Having a special time and place to paint is a great incentive and it instills good discipline. On other days, I enjoy painting miniature landscapes, which have been very popular. I am proud to be showing in the Arkansas Studies Institute Galleries.
