I started this piece by setting up a bunch of grayish pots and pans. Liking a bit of humor, I added the toy soldiers guarding or watching the pots and remembered the saying "Watched pots never boil". So they will never have to use their guns, not that they could. It's just the idea of them.--
I am a Professional artist with a Fine Art Degree and minoring in Education. Working for decades, I have done it all, teaching, wall murals, portraiture, plein air, commercial renderings, neon and plastic signs, floral design, fabric arts and jewelry. My experience in most mediums is extensive with oil, pastel and collage as favorites. I've received accolades and Gallery representation with sales to Hospitals, commercial projects and collectors throughout the States. I continue to paint, teach, and tenaciously study past masters. Now having fun is a priority, I am motivated to create a new body of work. These paintings will be a continuance of ideas developed back in college but with a more educated approach.
