in the rocks

Different color schemes are everywhere in nature and inspire many interior spaces!  
Choosing two shades of the same hue, or contrasting colors with similar undertones, creates unity throughout the space.


A color palette inspired by this bowl o' rocks:

colors of sienna

Eight days of sunshine, record warmth, and gorgeous colors! My very favorite time of year -- surrounded by raw sienna and burnt sienna. Coincidence?

Saturday, September 24, 2011


I created this set of paintings to evoke a sense of balance, with an unpredictable rythm.

dark/light, sunny/cloudy, earth/water, rest/energy.

Life's constant transitions.

the vibe

"Hard work is not the path to Well-Being.
Feeling good is the path to Well-Being.
You don't create through action;
You create through vibration.
And then, your vibration calls action from you."

north shore

The scenery of Minnesota's north shore is breath-taking. A weekend of relaxing, hiking, great food, and a ride on the new alpine coaster was just what I needed!
The timing was perfect. I took a break from two commissioned paintings of birch trees and didn't realize I would spend the weekend surrounded by thousands of birch! I snapped a few photos and am now ready to finish the birch tree paintings!
