Dear friends,

Many of you know I used to paint portraits and stopped a few years ago. I felt like they took too much out of me and I needed to step away. I chose to pour my energy into developing the other side of my work, gardens, flowers, amazing leaves.

Well, for a few months now, I've been thinking about portraits. Mulling over the idea, the feelings. Listening to clients. Thinking about the world, and life, and how important people are to me. Then, I was asked if I would do this one of Dani, and I took the opportunity to see how it worked out for me. And it was good!

So, I'll paint another one! After I do some flowers!

Here are some pictures of the process:

So, the secret is out. I'm looking forward to the changes that come my way from stepping out of my comfort zone and growing.

Thank you for your interest in my work, and happy May!
