My two boys and I discovered these flowers on a walk in our neighborhood the other day. My sweet toddler immediately thought to pick one “for mama”. Mama was very happy with her flower! I also took a photo of them and painted them on canvas. Cherry Blossoms Painting

Mural Enhancement in Leesburg, Virginia

mural restoration, mural enhancement

Recently I had the enjoyment of painting enhancements to a residential mural in Leesburg. This mural was originally painted around 17 years ago! The homeowner wanted me to  improve the appearance of the willow tree so that it resembled a willow tree more, and re-paint the cardinal bird up top. So the tricks were to keep the style of the original artist and mix the colors well enough to blend in with the original painting. Here is a ‘before’ photo:

Kiwi Color Burst Oil Painting

kiwi painting, fruit painting, fruit art, kiwi, kiwi art, fruit still life

Kiwi is so delicious. Every time I eat one, I wish they were 10x bigger, because I eat them in about 20 seconds and am always left wanting more!

For the past few weeks, we’ve been buying our groceries through the online grocery store Door to Door Organics, and part of the delivery is a box of fresh organic fruit. I highly recommend them for the convenience and quality of food. It’s been perfect every time! So much so, that the fruit has been inspiring my latest paintings, including this one. This is an oil painting on 9″ x 12″ linen paper. The original and prints are available for purchase here – https://www.saatchiart.com/art/Painting-Kiwi-Color-Burst/842088/3435915/view

Mural at Lost Rhino Retreat in Ashburn

This morning I started the prep work on a mural painting at the Lost Rhino Retreat Restaurant in Ashburn, Virginia. The interior of this restaurant is beautiful, as it is open and spacious with very high ceilings, locally milled wood installations, a fireplace, and natural light streaming through the tall windows. Perfect for illuminating a mural that I’ll be painting on an empty white wall, which will be a colorful outline of the Lost Rhino logo.

Here is a photo of the blank wall:

As part of the prep work, I cleaned the wall from scuffs and scratches:

and then added a fresh coat of white paint:

Next Thursday I’ll be going back to paint a colorful version of the rhino logo, and hope to finish up that day or on Friday!

Ashburn Artist Captures Moments on the W&OD

I’m famous now! OK, maybe not. But, I was part of a group interview for a feature article in Northern Virginia Magazine on the W&OD Art & Artifacts exhibit currently on display. Here is a link to the article. A big thank you to Joanna Estes, who provides PR for artists and arts organizations, and who coordinated this interview! I highly recommend her – joannakestes@gmail.com

It’s been a rush, but I finally finished the last portrait painting on my list for the holidays, just in time for it to be given as a Christmas gift. A student midwives at NOVA Natural Birth Center commissioned me for this painting, to be given as a gift to her older sister. It’s an oil painting on a 16″ x 20″ Belgian Linen gallery-wrapped canvas.
