I Fell In Love With The Rock Formations In Sedona, Arizona, And Did A Lot Of Experimenting While Painting Them On Site, En Plein Air. I Am Sort Of A Java Junkie, So I Got A Particular Delight From Painting Coffeepot Rocks. (Coffeepots Rock, Right?) I Was In A Parking Lot Of A Park Building, And Many Tourists Watched Me As I Painted This One.
About The Artist:
I Started Painting Eight Years Ago, When I Was 50. I'D Never Painted In My Life - Never Even Thought About It!

But My Mother'S Death, When I Had Just Turned 50, Had Unraveled Me. I Was Searching For Anything - Anything! - That Would Help Me Cope.

The Idea Came To Me To Make A Painting Of Our Dogs, To Give To My Husband For Christmas. I Did It, And I Loved It, And I Was Good At It. Insanely, Inexplicably Good.

Painting Continued To Sustain Me As, A Few Months After I Began To Paint, My Boss - Who Also Was A Dear Friend - Died Suddenly, At The Age Of 54. Painting Sustained Me When, Four Months After Mike'S Death, And 8 Months After My Mother'S Death, The Newspaper Job I'D Thought I Would Have Forever Was Eliminated.

I Did Get Another Job, Eventually. In Time, I Quit That Job To Paint. Insurance Costs Drove Me Back Into Regular Work, But When My Husband Hit Medicare Age, I Quit The Corporate World To Paint Full-Time. I'Ve Never Regretted It.

We Moved To The Eastern Shore Of Virginia, Where The Landscapes Are Beautiful And The Living Is Cheap. I Sell My Art In Juried Art Fairs And Galleries, And From My Studio.

The First 25 Years Of My Working Career Focused On News, On Disaster And Sadness And Loss. The Remainder Of My Working Career, Painting, Is Focusing On Joy And Light And Beauty. I Could Not Be Happier.
