Some background information on my life as it affects and has affected my painting...
I am an 86 year old housewife who restarted painting several months ago...I did some painting while living in Asia, but was busy raising five children, keeping up with my then husband's busy life, and doing volunteer work in the Asian communities in which we lived. Life in Hong Kong and Korea was interesting and informative, and I believe that some of the Buddhist and local philosophy of life has influenced my work - then and now.
I find a great deal of satisfaction, joy, and comfort in my current "full time" task of painting that which I know and enjoy. I don't write books but my stories are in my paintings, and for the past 25 years (since 1996), I have been living an interesting and now comfortable life in Las Vegas, Nevada. Other than painting, I enjoy reading detective stories, books about England's past, and playing poker online, occasionally at our local casino.
My paintings are usually created on three basic sizes:" 12x16, 16x20, and 18x24 (inches)...usually on stretched canvas
but may be on canvas board...determination is made based upon subject, where the paintings will be placed, and similar considerations.
A few paintings of my interests are shown below, and as this site is in its start-up phase,
look for more of my paintings which are expected to be added on a weekly basis...
