About Me

Guymon, Oklahoma, United States
I am blessed to live where my grandfather homesteaded, to have three beautiful daughters who are my best friends, to have six delightful grandchildren who live nearby, to be married to my sweetheart of 35 years and to thrill to the special magic of creating my own works of art. I'll never cease to thrill to witnessing new ideas and images come to life from the point of a pencil or splash of a brush. I am blessed.

"Fava Beans"

Most people have heard the famous movie line regarding fava beans but I don't know many people who have actually eaten them.  I found some at the farmer's market in Santa Fe and decided to add them to my OHMS series.  They are plump, green bean-like pods and the recipes I've found call for soaking or pureeing the seeds.

This is an 8" x 9" pastel on Canson Mi-Teintes paper.  Also, a "shout out" to an anonymous friend who left me a comment regarding my misspelling of Mi-Teintes on my posts.  Thank you for catching my mistake.  As an art teacher I really regret that error and am grateful to be set straight.  I'm also grateful to think that someone out there actually follows my posts and cares enough to comment.
