These peonies were left from our backyard wedding and were the most spectacular I had ever seen. I photographed them for days hoping to have at least one image I could paint from. (I think I do). The chickadee is a collage from a series started last year. I picked it up again and have created a few more. Each time, I marvel at how much I learn when I work in a series. My santos doll doesn't have to have a purpose. She has an air of grace and beauty. I have great plans for her. The portrait of the little girl I just couldn't part with. Her intense gaze pulls you in.
Wow, I just realized this is my 400th post!
