The 'Kindness of Strangers' collection is now available on my website. I'll also be in Pottery Barn Southpark here in Charlotte tomorrow from 12-4 with these pieces and a few other small pieces. Twenty percent of the proceeds will go to assist victims of this fall's hurricane season. Happy Holidays.
Around here everyone has a hurricane story. Here’s mine..
"The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceness as a beach - waiting for a gift from the sea." - Anne Morrow Lindbergh I'm 'flip-flopping' collections and releasing 'COASTAL HOLIDAY' on December 1 instead.

However, it's time to move on from painting palm trees. I'm not ready for pumpkin spice latte yet, … Continue reading What’s next?
The idea was to paint this series based on Palm Springs. I visited there years ago on a family vacation. Probably in a station wagon. Stopped at Hoover Dam, Hollywood, Disneyland and then couldn't wait to swim in the hotel pool in Palm Springs. Most likely a Holiday Inn if there was one. If we were lucky, a ' Holidome'. … Continue reading The thing about palm trees…
