I played with clay as a child. Then I began to paint in high school. Then I retired work and became a ceramicist. I retired from clay and now it's back to painting! No matter what you do if you get to create something life is good. You are a fine example of that! Thank you.

For Tiki Oasis San Diego 2022. Party in the Garden. Acrylic on Black Velvet.

Painted with regular paint and then again with UV light sensitive paint.

In 2009 I saw this broach on eBay. It was made in the 1940's. I saved a photo so I could one day paint it. close up!

Wendy, what did you do with all your ceramic supplies?

I sold every single thing to Robert E. Coleman. He is putting his studio together. It took months for him to take it all to Nevada.

The Black Velvet wish of Ron House is completed. Even though it wasn't requested some of the painting is UV light sensitive. Here is how it turned out. 9/5/22.
