New Visions

"Seeing" things a little differently

Artsy Smartsy

A creative person always has a dilemma.

It’s either “What shall I paint, write, make or do?”  Can I make my creation better?  Am I satisfied with the outcome?   How do we know we are actually finished with a project?  Especially if we keep going back to add something here and there.

My latest passion is painting.  I paint on canvas, wood, paper and glass.  Years ago I was a dance teacher,  I was always making up new dance steps and choreographing new routines.

I can only speak for myself here but in the midst of my creativeness I find myself living a chaotic lifestyle.  I work best among the mess and clutter.  If I could only find that certain brush I need.




People often wonder how I have the patience to complete a painting…I really can’t answer that.  I love to paint, so why wouldn’t I want to do it all day long?

As you can see, I paint mostly realism… that’s what I enjoy.




I love to paint animals,  I like to capture the personality in each.

I’ve painted a few homes as well, where people live their daily lives…There’s no place like home.

Sand Island Lighthouse


I paint what the mood strikes me.



The interesting thing is my paintings have depth to them…I can only see out of one eye and my eyesight is very poor in the other eye!   Just goes to show that you can do anything you want to do.


Lake house


This is one of my first paintings ever…




Is it a fairy-tale to think I could possibly make a living at this?
