"Phi Ratio" Or "Proof of God"

This is "Phi Ratio". 12" X 12" acrylic on canvas.
This was once explained to me by a fellow named Bert Janssen. cropcirclesandmore. He has a wonderful blog about crop circles. The sacred geometry is so amazing. In one of his essays he explains in great detail about squaring the circle and the exact relationship the earth has with the moon.

I'm entering this painting in the 12" square show at The Mortgage West building on South Pearlin Denver. It's to benefit feeding needy horses.

"Yellow Rose" 8" x 10" acrylic on canvas. I hung it at Stella's Coffee House. I have about twenty pieces showing there right now through Christmas.

This fall rose was in beautiful bloom when I captured it with my camera. I painted with a clear acrylic gel which is something I had not done before. It created depth and texture that this photo is not revealing.

Mauve Rose

This painting is going to The Mortgage West building on South Pearl in Denver. Susan Bell has a show for 1' x 1' pieces opening in December. Each piece is going for $200.00 each. The proceeds will be going for a fund that feeds horses. Pretty cool.

This is 12" x 12" acrylic on canvas. I used a high gloss gel medium to create depth and texture.

It has been some time since I last posted. I have a show at Stella's Coffee House on South Pearl in Denver that goes down in mid-November 2012.

This rose was a fall bloom I captured with my amazing digital camera. My rose!

Southwest road to Red Rocks.

Southwest Road. I guess I could have come up with a better title.
This is 16" X 20" oil on canvas. The Aurora Artist Guild invited me to do a demonstration for them. I was able to show my technique for painting the famous red rocks at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado. It is such a cool place. My humble brushstrokes cannot possibly define God's hand in this.
I will be taking this to Stella's Coffee House @ South Pearl in Denver on Tuesday, April 3.

Renye's Two Chairs

The painting below was painted by my friend who passed away 2 years ago. Renye Ress was very talented. About ten years ago, I was fortunate to acquire this painting. I don't know it's title so I call it "Renye's Chair."
She had a show at Common Grounds Coffee House on 32nd and Lowel. It was right before Christmas so I purchased this for my husband. We knew Renye from doing theatre in the Denver area. My memory serves me that when we were around her a lot of laughter transpired.

This is why I could feel her laughing with me when I composed this painting.

It is acrylic, 14" x 11" on canvas. "Renye's Two Chairs" has some elements I borrowed from Renye's painting. You can find it at Stella's Coffee House on February 15th.

Yes, that is a crop circle painting on the wall. The image makes me happy.
It appeared in Lockenridge, Wiltshire, UK in 2008. It looks simple but it is complex. Crop circles are fascinating. I plan to include them more in the future.

This is called "Up On The Roof"

It is 30" x 15" oil on canvas.

This is the view from Denver's wonderful museum next to the zoo and City Park.
From the roof of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, you can see very handsome beauty called Denver. This painting is hanging @ Stella's Coffee House in Denver. See you there!
"The Highway to Fairplay"

This was hung at Stella's Coffee House in Denver on March 30th.

THis is a 12" x 16" oil on canvas.

One of my favorite places to see is this stretch that starts at the Great Sand Dunes and then works its way North to South Park. I love the little home stead at the base of the mountains.
