My paintings are full of traditions. Sterling silver and the memories held within each piece, old glass jars bring back memories of my Grandparents farm, cattle and their classic expressions, and deserts from our favorite bakery in town are just a few of my very favorite things to paint.

Three Baby Rattles in a Sterling Cup
I must admit, this painting is my favorite that I have done to date. As with all of my work, I love it because of the memories it recalls. I have three kids. They are older now, and happily, I am free of the "baby stuff" that used to clutter my home. Yet the memories of holding Holly, Reid and Ryan as babies are some of my most treasured thoughts. The kids played with their sterling rattles. They are dented and scratched by little cutting teeth. I love these rattles because of their dents! What good is a sterling baby rattle if a baby can't make it their own? This painting is 12 in x 12in. Not for Sale
