Roda’s Critter Connection

I truly believe that Mavis was a rock star in another life.  She just had to be!  She sure knows how to work that camera lens!  Mavis was born with confidence and attitude.  Each day, she holds her head up high and struts her stuff, even on her bad hair days!  We all can learn a tidbit from Ms. Mavis about loving ourselves, exactly as we are, at this very moment…

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”.
