― Francis A. Schaeffer, Art & the Bible
When I first started painting, I was a traditional watercolor artist. I wanted to master watercolors, so for quite a few years that was the only medium I worked in. Then moving into plein air, I started working with gouache. I have to insert here that I couldn't resist the beauty of seaglass and the allure of walking the beaches in search of it, so I learned how to wire wrap the glass.
Oh, what an office it is!
Lately, I've gotten into distressing picture frames and then experimenting with painting furniture. I don't believe I am there yet but here are a few of my latest projects.

I am going to branch out again and start working with a silversmith. She's my next door neighbor. As we produce our new jewelry line, we will also be blogging the adventures of our whacky pets and what happened, quite by accident (our Lord does not make mistakes, though) when our animals crossed the boundary lines into each others "space".
