This acrylic painting on heavy watercolor paper captures the luminous glow of a morning glory at dawn. The painting appears in my recent book, Creating Exceptional Color in Acrylics. Available to purchase.
The pinks and lavenders of this softly luminous rose are accented with a hint of orange.
Simple Joy is exactly how I feel when I see these purple and white irises in my gardens. The marauding deer ignore these flowers so I thoroughly enjoy their radiant colors. Available for purchase.

The butterscotch yellows and golds of sunflowers speak of the glorious days of late summer, bringing a smile to the heart.
The boldness of this poppy painting lets it appeal to men while still having the delicate transparency of ever-so-thin poppy petals.
Orchid at Midnight received a Juror’s Choice award in Blossom: The Art of the Flower, an international competition sponsored by the Susan Kathleen Black Foundation.
