6"x 6" oil on Raymar panel $110.

I have mixed feelings about not hosting

South America, Mexico and all areas of the US,
but I selfishly want to have more time for
my own development.
When I started fracturing 9 years ago,
very few oil painters were into
any form of the
"create, destroy, rebuild"
school and it took time for me to find
my own way of doing it.
It took me even longer to
show the public, and that was 8 years ago,
but, it became noticed
and I was asked to make a video
for Daily Paintworks!!
I still am gobsmacked at how successful
it has been.
Fast forward to the present time.
I see many, many more
- as my husband calls them -
and I am excited to be mainstream
where people are not asking me
why my lines are not smooth!!
I want to push myself further
and see what develops.
