Bold splashes of burnt orange spark through a field of purples, from a soft mineral lavender to a deep violet black. A loose, liquid boundary almost contains the color like a frame, but there’s splashes all around, joyfully bursting free of the confines of geometry.
This is a gorgeous abstract, bright and warm without being too obnoxious, and would go elegantly in any room.
Above, you can see the delicate lace formed as the colors mix and blend, rust to peach, purple to paper white. Below, the culture waits behind glass to be examined, appreciated, and enjoyed.

This fat, fuzzy bumblebee is just waiting to bring some sparkly spring into your life!
She’s chilling in this honey-gold world, dusted with glittering pollen and waiting to go out and gather for her queen and hive. She’s covered in fluff that’s perfect for getting the most pollen possible, so make sure to provide plenty of flowers known to help feed the bees.
What season gets you abuzz with joy?
Above, you can see the background brightened up by sunshine and the sparkling bronzite mineral paint. Below, the bee is in a little frame, waiting to find the perfect flower to make its home.

This is the first time in the Growth series that we’ve got actual growing things instead of mere seeds. The central core is a warm, inviting mix of earthy browns, and there are even green sprouts curling outward toward the universe, anchored by the rich red roots.
Have you put down roots, or are you still floating in the void, hoping to find something to nurture your growth?
Above, you can see the red-brown roots and green sprouts, as well as the earth-brown seeds and the rich mix of watercolor that make up our growing world. Below, the painting is in its frame, and already trying to outgrow it!

It’s a bit on the nose to call this typical example of my oeuvre “Me Three,” but sometimes the titles pick you.
The sky is a beautiful clear blue shading to the gold of sunrise, and the clouds float above with a mix of golden light and purple shadows. Trees full of character show just a touch of texture in the gleam of morning. A trio of long-necked birds make their way through the morning air.
Above, you can see the twisty trees, wispy clouds, and flappy birds. Below, the painting is tucked into a frame, just waiting to find its home with you.

A mysterious woman joins with the tide, dissolving into seafoam until all that’s left is the golden crown of flowers. Her long, dark hair makes a veil that matches the curving waves, while her pale face echoes the moon above, and her dress matches the whitecaps around her.
The scene is painted on a textured artists panel about 3/8″ thick, with a hanging-ready niche in the back if you don’t want to frame it.
One has to wonder, looking at her pink mouth amongst the midnight blue, whether she’s a ghost, a siren, or merely a woman scorned.
Above, you can see the mysterious figure in her golden crown of flowers up close. Below, the piece is all ready for hanging sans frame, so it’s just waiting on you to take it home.

This moody series of Counting Crows paintings has its seventh addition!
The tree here has clearly been through quite a bit of storm-tossing or other rough handling, with broken branches and even the top pointing jaggedly to the sky while it spreads itself as well as it can with what remains. A murder of crows alights, and a ghostly figure awaits in the fog.
Where would you show this seventh secret?
Above, you can see a couple of the crows, a fraction of the full murder. Below, they’re in a frame like looking through a window into another, spookier reality.

Mood: The end of the world, but sparkly.
This painting is full of warm colors and sparkling mineral paints, despite the ghostly city half-destroyed against a burning sky. Carrion birds dot the sky above, circling for their dinner. The buildings have a loose, alien quality to make you wonder just where this city was, and who once lived among its now-abandoned streets.
Above, you can see the secret sparkle hiding in the simple palette. Below, you can see the painting framed and ready to let your imagination roam the landscape.
