"pin + interest"

i have started collecting my "pin + interest" board before my career as an artist ever began.
it is an ever changing and evolving board, thick with layers of magazine images- cool posters - fabric samples- photographs - and pieces of nature.  what i love most is digging beneath the layers to find ideas that i have long since forgotten!

three little fishies~

remember this snippet of an image? 

well, . . . here is the final painting!

this commission was completed for an energetic couple that
loves the WATER!
whether they are on a boat cruising the KY lakes or further south
snorkeling along the salty shores in the  Abacos,
the water's edge is not far from their toes!
