"Turquoise Summer" is my 12"x12"x1.5" abstract acrylic painting.  I had so much fun painting this piece. It's dynamic, vibrant, textured, and painted on a wide-bordered canvas with the image on all sides.  No need to frame. If you're interested in this piece, or you'd like a larger similar version, I paint commissions.  My studio is located in Roswell, Ga.   You can purchase this piece by clicking on this link: CLICK HERE   Abstract Art in Atlant, GA.

Aspen, Colorado Inspiration

Several months ago, just before the first snow in Aspen, Tom and I were able to have a wonderful vacation just outside of Aspen, in Snowmass.  We visited the Great Divide, took breathtaking walks in the mountains, and allowed ourselves to be enveloped under the golden shrouds of the spellbinding aspen trees.   Sometimes it's easy to forget how important it is to be inspired by something or someone.  Nature is a powerful influencer and when we find what breathes life into our being, it's important to turn off all the noise in our lives and tune into the beauty of...
