Title or Location: Her Charming Glade
Her charming Glade was created solely based on the image of this wonderful woman searching for love. The elements of this three dimensional piece, subject, background and floral foreground, all came from different sources. Each piece is hand, cut, and layered to create three-dimensional depth and realism. She is looking for magic, so I found an ethereal background that looked as if magic could be found.

Title or Location: Moroccan rugs and cushions.
This is a gouache painting on watercolour paper and measures 6x4ins. Our theme in art class was Moroccan markets and this particular scene offered colour, architecture and sunshine without the heaving masses. I shall attempt a crowded scene next time.

Fort Myers Art Group
Title or Location: And so, my love
I have had some luck with abstracts in the past, but got away from them when pet commissions and nature-oriented subjects filled my days. Recently, however, I found myself looking for something different, and I was inspired to get back to this very different way of painting. I'm having fun again! This is one of a series that is coming together, interpreting the emotions of love and longing. I hope you enjoy it, and will check out my web site, and perhaps join my mailing list!

Title or Location: Heartache
This is the third of my abstracts in what I'm hoping will be a series called "A Woman's Life". I'm trying to express emotions through the composition, colors and the attitude of the subject. This is a very challenging project but I'm seriously enjoying it and I hope that other people will enjoy viewing what I come up with.
