Phase 4 of the "Little Italy Series". This is 10"h x 8"w, like the others and was done as a quick sketch. This was the breakfast room of the hotel we stayed at in Venice. SOLD.
Phase 3 of my "Little Italy Series". Like the others, this painting is little, on 10"h x 8"w canvas. It was painted quickly to represent the fleeting moment that inspired it. SOLD.

This is phase II of my "Little Italy Series". All of the paintings in this series are little 10"h x 8"w and were painted quickly to represent the fleeting moments they represent. Oil on Canvas. SOLD.

Venice I from my "Little Italy Series"

This is phase I of my "Little Italy Series". I have done four small paintings 10"h x 8" w. They were all quickly done and sketchy to capture the fleeting moments that I encountered. SOLD.

Self Portrait

This is my first attempt at a self portrait in oil. I don't paint portraits too often, mostly people are part of an overall scene but rarely "looking at the camera." It is 30" x 40" x 1 1/2". It's not really for sale because I don't know who would even be interested in buying it... who the heck wants a portrait of me? It was mostly for fun. It looks slightly better if you click on the image to see a close up, otherwise it is grainy due to my dysfunctional camera (not because of my picture taking.) And don't tell me I look angry... I tried to make myself look happier than I normally do in real life, so buzz off. Ok, I guess buzz off is a little harsh, so never mind that part.

Which dress will she choose? I kind of like the one on the headless mannequin; it represents the billowy style that seems to be popular right now. I don't know because after the age of 25, my knowledge of fashion trends has waned a little with each passing year. I spotted this scene while walking through little Italy in Manhattan one evening. Again, a through-the-window picture. This oil painting is on 20" x 24" x 1 1/2"canvas. SOLD.

Okay, I'll admit it... When I take walks at night I look in the windows of nicely decorated houses to see how the owners have decorated. I am not any kind of "people watcher", I merely like to appreciate the decor. I do have an interior design degree, after all. When my husband and I were in Charleston last year, we were walking some of the spooky streets at night between restaurant and bar, and I spotted this house that was for sale. This room was softly lighted and this cat sat on a chair that he was probably not supposed to sit on to prepare for bed. When compared the darkness of the streets, this scene provided a feeling of serenity and safety.

To the owner of this house if you are unhappy with me: If you don't want me to paint pictures of your living room, close your curtains at night!

This oil painting is on 10" h x 8" w canvas. SOLD.

This oil painting of a street in Bruges is 18" w x 24" h x 1" d. This will soon be for sale at Philly Street Cafe in Indiana, PA after it opens in a couple of weeks. A family friend is opening the new cafe and it should be pretty awesome. My mother and I will have some of our paintings on display for the next couple of months. SOLD.


This oil painting is on 30" x 40" x 2" canvas. This is for sale at Emphasis Interiors in Pittsburgh, PA. SOLD.
