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.

This is a big one! 4 ft x 3 ft, oil on canvas. These two old Ball jars remind me of my grandparents farm. On the farm they had to keep things sealed...well sealed to keep the critters out! As a child, I was always frustrated and equally fascinated with Ball jars! They were so hard to open and close with my little fingers, but usually they were filled with something yummy, so the work was worth it!
