This seascape with colorful boats, shows the view from the bridge that connects Ocean Springs to Biloxi, Mississippi on highway 90. This huge bridge was blown away during hurricane Katrina and took near a couple of years to re-open. One has to be very careful when crossing into Biloxi or the casinos will draw you in and suck all the money out of your pockets.

I simplified the figures in this painting, describing the figures with only a couple of values using orange and alizarin crimson (shadows). The figure in the background is the block in sketch which caught the gesture nicely. Paying attention to the negative spaces is extremely helpful when working with figures (or anything else for that matter).
I have been painting since the first grade when teacher made me draw the Santa Claus on the blackboard for Christmas. (Of course that was pre ACLU). I am from Holly Springs, Mississppi originally, a small town in Northeastern Mississippi, where I had my first real art lessons from the local artist. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Southern Mississippi. After college I lived, painted and studied in New Orleans.
Currently I live in beautiful Gulf Shores, Alabama with my husband Ed.
I love painting figures, still lifes, beach scenes, or just about anything else that gives me the opportunity to play with color and shapes.
My goal in painting is to have fun creating a visual feast for you to enjoy, all to the glory of God.
