A quad layout of Florida Palm trees in bright colors. 3 of these are outside of my door and 1 is from my imagination. These are Oil Pastels on watercolor paper. My original artwork has taken on the vibrancy of the natural landscape, as well as the many manicured properties that dot the landscape of, the Nature Coast, of Southwest Florida.
This is an ArtDesign abstraction of my original mixed media piece below. It is created in the instagram layout app.
I am of the belief that creating art is a very personal experience; as is the viewing of art. This “Ying Yang series” of oil pastels that I’ve created came from my personal experience that with everything I do, feel, or participate in as a human being, there is a keen awareness of my opposite or alter ego — my shadow-self or spirit. I believe that we are never alone and we can always tap into this subtle energy — or spirit — of ourselves to learn more about who we are (or just to have some fun with).
I love being liked by 100 people….and counting! I am truly grateful to have created this blog. I have found a great community of creative minds here.

Now that you saw from my post about the farmer’s market, that I have the BEST Dog On THE Planet!
and one more snoozy pic! (note the faraway look in his eyes)
Being the big dog lover that I am, I decided to create two pastel pieces in honor of my boy. Enjoy!
