I have just finished a very large abstract painting for a collector in Texas. Four by six feet. This was such a challenge for me... the sheer size of the painting had me rethinking the entire process.. from how to get the canvas out of the huge tube it was shipped in to how much paint I had to mix so I wasn't remixing with every brushstroke. I loved it and hope to paint another large piece soon.

I recently finished a fairly large 48"x60" landscape of aspen trees and a path in the Rocky Mountains titled 'Autumn's Glory" It was shipped to Gallery 1401 in Chattanooga, TN for the grand opening of their new gallery space. Congratulations to Sue and her great staff!
I recently finished a commissioned original oil dog portrait for a wedding anniversary present for a treasured client. For those of you in the Denver, CO area who know Finley.. I hope you recognize him!

|"We Are Craig"|
|Welcome to the first post on my new website! These two large original oil paintings were commissioned by Craig Hospital in Denver, Colorado for the new addition that just opened. The "We Are Craig" dogs is in the lobby and I need to find where "Hobie Days" was placed. :) I was honored to be the artist chosen to paint both of these paintings for the hospital. A long time ago.. in the 80's I was an operating room nurse at Swedish Hospital Ambulatory Surgery Center and watched the wonderful staff at Craig in action. My wish is that these paintings bring smiles and joy into the hearts of the patients, families and staff at Craig. Have a colorful day! Anita|
