Places

I have many incredible memories of warm summers spent on the lakes of Upstate New York. We would watch as the storms progressed from the far side of the lake to our shore, taking cover on the porch or, if we were at the beach, sheltered in the car until it blew over.  In the evenings we would often take a boat out to the middle of the lake and stargaze. These paintings are some of my happy memories.

A superstorm blew into Park City, Utah on February 18th, 2016. The temperature dropped twenty degrees in five minutes when the storm overtook our town. I was so captivated by the drama happening in the sky, I pulled my car over to the side of the road and took pictures of the event. I have worked a whole series of paintings around that event, experimenting with the clouds, developing my techniques, exposing the reflective silver of the panels by scraping, buffing, and simply leaving it as negative space. My work is difficult to capture in a photograph as the reflective light quality is lost in the transition to a digital format.  The best way to experience my paintings is to visit the Summit Gallery or the gallery wall at Oohs and Aah's in Park City, Utah to see my original works.

      Wow! You ladies are very thoughtful! I am guessing you are both artists yourselves! Thank you for the lovely compliments. I have a really good time creating my paintings and love to share them with people who appreciate them. I would be happy to meet you anytime in the gallery and talk about my art with you!
