I decided to create a separate site, from Growing Self, for my artwork.  I want to honor the original purpose of Growing Self, while continuing to celebrate my passion for art.  If you are interested, feel free to check it out and follow my artistic adventures!

Radiance

As the gardens begin to wrap up for the season, I am finding more time to be creative, in a different way!  I am extremely excited to complete another piece in my sunflower series!  I am very critical about my work and thrive on constructive criticism.  Yet, I have to say, when I put my palette knife down and stepped back , I was very pleased with the final outcome of this painting.   I am not sure I am going to be able to let this one go!  Enjoy the creative process of “Radiance”.
