This piece is created in a complicated process of beginning the painting with paint then using a resist, then painting more, then removing the resist, followed by more painting and building up of subject matter and details with a final finish of glossy varnish. The painting is vibrant and apt to bring the sunshine in for many moments of joyful viewing in your home.

My husband and I drove the Texas Bluebonnet Trail. We pulled the car over many times on the trail. Here in Ennis Texas, we walked through the fields next to the lake. It was a magical experience like nothing we'd ever done. This is my first soft pastel piece based on this inspirational place. The original was purchased immediately after sharing on Facebook. I have made reproductions available in my Fine Art America/Pixels shop.
We traveled from Puerto Rico to several Islands. This island is Antigua. The beaches were very beautiful. We went to 2 beaches of 365 of them on the island.
I created this work of art using the medium of soft pastel on paper. I imagined the island scents and sounds as I worked on this piece, immediately bringing me back to my experience there. We traveled as a group of family and friends here for one day. There were many fish swimming around us. The original is 18x24" and has been purchased by one of my art collectors. I have made reproductions available here

There were so many iguanas in Puerto Rico, friendly, hanging around the pool. Later in the trip in St. Maarten we saw one jump in the pool and swim across it!
Sampling the local food was a treat too.
This is mofongo (mashed plantains) with steak.
