Watercolor Bouquet

Well I had to return to reality sometime… Yes I am back in the studio from my amazing vacation. I feel refreshed and ready to jump right back into things. Good thing since I went right to work on Sara’s invites. This softer version of my original watercolor bouquet is just right for her late […]


My Western Adventure – Yosemite National Park, California

We just spent 4 glorious days in Yosemite. Even though I am a huge fan of red rock country this is by far my most favorite park. It is full of all the big attrations that would expect from a park this size but also brimming with hidden treasures. This first day I spent a […]


My Western Adventure – Zion National Park, Utah

I just love Utah….really that is an understatement. The land, the people and the sun – I just can’t get enough. I could be here for a lifetime and never be short on inspiration. We stayed in Zion National Park for 3 nights and hated to leave. It was quite warm but we were never […]


My Western Adventure – Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah

Next we were on to Bryce Canyon. I have been here once before but did not get the chance to spend much time. We drove to the end of the scenic drive where I then backtracked and painted Natural Bridge while the others hiked a short trail. This time my painting experience was not quite […]


My Western Adventure – Monument Valley, Utah

On Monday we visited Monument Valley in Utah. This land is now owned by the Navaho Nation and they offer tours throughout this stunning landscape. Many films and commercials have been fimed here and you can see why. I took little over an hour on the side of the path to paint just a portion […]


My Western Adventure – El Morro NM, New Mexico

Today we are traveling through New Mexico. We stopped at several National Monuments along the way. It was at el Murro that I finally was able to do some painting. I was so inspired by the jutting rocks far above my head. The varying shades of orange were a beautiful backdrop to the soft blue […]

My Western Adventure – Santa Fe, New Mexico

We spent Friday and Saturday in Santa Fe. I was so looking forward to being back in Santa Fe. It is such a lovely area full of color, life and sprit. I feel at home here. We finally visited The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum. It was small and quaint and housed some of her most beloved […]

My Western Adventure – Garden of the Gods, Colorado

Next we stopped at Garden of the Gods which is completely free to the public. You enter the park to be immediately greeted by a landscape much in contrast to the preceeding drive. Huge rock formations of vibrant orange and terracotta – some so thin you wonder how they atand strong. They do advise however […]

My Western Adventure – Great Sand Dunes, Colorado

This is me and my husband’s 5th trip out west. The first and third time we drove from PA to our destinations out west. The remainder of the time we would cheat – fly to Las Vegas or Denver and rent a car… I really can’t say which I prefer. Driving the entire way lends […]


My Western Adventure – Pikes Peak, Colorado

I am finally on vacation and our first stop was Pikes Peak in Colorado. Colorado has 52 fourteeners which mountains over 14,000 feet. Pikes Peak comes in at 14,110! We began our climb and I read the pamphlet. It spoke of hypoxia – which is altitude sickness. We drove and drove and all of us […]
