My husband knows that he does not have to buy me super expensive gifts to make me happy. A handful of leaves or a flat rock to paint on will thrill me!

I press leaves in old phone books to dry them. Then I treat them with matt medium so that they are flexible and won't shatter as I paint them. Then Gesso is put down - wherever I am going to paint so that the acrylics will adhere to the leaves. Then they are sealed once again before they are mounted in a shadow box frame.

I seem to sell these unique little paintings almost as fast as I paint them.

We saw lots of gophers growing up on a prairie farm - and in fact had one as a pet for one summer. It mysteriously disappeared the first day we returned to school in the fall. I kind of suspect that our father had something to do with that ...... 

"Chee Chee" - never forgotten - depicted here on an oak leaf in acrylics.


Owls are fascinating. They look large and gentle, but as my mother once found out when she was getting too close to the tree with a nest, they can be aggressive when they need to be. 

And - ask any mouse ..... yup - they are aggressive. 

This owl painted on an grapevine leaf is SOLD. 

"The Dam Pelican" - SOLD

This little painting shows a pelican in flight using acrylic on an oak leaf. The reference photo used was one taken near Gardner Dam by artist Beth Campbell.
