Pastel spoof of Frida Kahlo self portrait with skeletons
Frida Skelly with Monkeys, 12×18″ pastel on sanded paper, $1,600.

Here are all the skeletons in my closet. I love skellies because they’re fearless, fun-loving and free. All the things I want to be.

Pastel painting
Hanging On, 5×7″ pastel on gessoed mat board, $90.

When I was feeling overwhelmed and lost I found solace in the woods. Every day I go into the woods and recharge there.

The Water

Wave Portrait No. 118, 6×8″ pastel on board, $100.

Some days I just want to lay on the sand and listen to the surf. These paintings are about the the water. I’ve always lived around lakes and rivers and the ocean. It pulls at me like a tide and I have to paint it.
