The Christ Window Commission

This is a commission of “The Christ Window” circa 1906. The window is currently housed at First Church, First United Methodist Church in Mission Valley, San Diego CA, and is a favorite of my client. He wanted his wife to be able to see it in their home everyday.  I reproduced it in acrylic paint on canvas. It’s 18″ x 24″

Here’s my latest painting. A 20″x 24″ Oil on canvas painting of my daughter exploring the sand dunes in Ocean Beach, San Diego. I completed this over the Summer of 2015 right after I discovered my grandmother has liver cancer. I tried to put all my emotions over the news into the sky, while thinking about the carefree qualities of youth and good health.

The Train Door

My last painting showed me that it IS possible for me to paint while my children are home. In fact, it’s a good thing- it keeps me from baking! This painting is #2 in a new series (I hope) of transportation paintings. This is my daughter Ivy, standing in the doorway of an antique train, which is now a museum in San Diego. I love the light in this painting and in the last. I also love the symbolism of these children looking out into the light from a train. It speaks to me of the promise of future, the wide openness of their lives. What does it say to you?Ivy brighter

I’ve finally carved out a little time to complete an oil painting. It’s been difficult over the past year, with 2 young children to make time to really get lost in a painting. It feels so good to be back! I’m hoping this will be the start of a train, or transportation series. I already have my next painting in mind, so stand by.
