During the winter months I create most of my larger paintings in my studios from photos that were taken throughout the year. While I look forward to the flower gardens and the beaches, I paint with the memories of those moments that my models and I created.
As I paint, I feel myself on the beach, I hear the ocean and I smell the salt in the air -- it brings me right back to the beach and then I can paint it! The feeling of serenity and love can be found with a mother holding her baby in her arms while being on the beach.
