This work was created by me in my TOUCH THE ART TODAY! studio. My art is textured and made for touching which brings an element of surprise and fun to the creation. This work is heavily textured. There is so much movement and texture in this sky/seascape… The sky is opening up and revealing the world behind it. I called it CROSSING OVER because it represents to me moving from one realm to another through a beautiful blue energy….

I truly enjoy creating skies with multiple shades of blues, greens, turquoise, white and on and on. The blending produces a visual that is delightful to my eye. I’d love to sit on the top of a mountain in this magical place I’ve painted.

This work has a mix of light to medium textures. The artist creates a painting, then gives it a name – hopefully a name that will invite you to use your imagination. Here is an island, off in the distance, bathed by the light of an early morning sky. But imagine, when day is done and the night floods the sky… all around you is black but for the light of billions of stars. Lie on the beach at Starlight Island and gaze up to the skies and be amazed….

This is the transition piece I created. Who knows what happens WHEN THE SILVER WIND BLOWS… but it’s sure to be memorable..

I have created a number of paintings in ‘The Sky Is Falling’ series. I love driving, swiping, racing, carving the colors across the canvas.

After weeks of rain and grey skies, I decided if I didn’t see some blue sky soon I would absolutely snap. So I painted my own instead. A thick, warm sun hangs in the sky and blue sky dominates the piece so that you are soothed by the expanse of blue. The gold in the mountains looks brilliant in the real sunshine.
