My painting: Twighlight Still Life is on display




 Having some fun with my watercolors and colored pencils. I am creating abstracts using bright colors and repeating shapes.  This is different from my usual realism.  These pieces are very spontaneous and playful. Perhaps my spirits are lifting now that the cold weather has finally disappeared and spring has taken root!
