Acrylic Florals Acrylic Florals
I consider myself an "eclectic painter, and I go through fits and starts.  A go-to favorite is painting florals.  As well, when I am teaching ,most students love painting florals, so I do demos and new pieces just to stay ahead of them, sometimes by only a week.

Acrylic Landscapes with a Kick Acrylic Landscapes with a Kick
One of my favorite things to paint are abstract, expressive landscapes, rather than painting those that one can capture equally as well with a camera.  I aim to show my feeling ans love for what I paint.  I am not necessarily a plein air painter, although I go out to sketch and to take lots of photos to capture the essence of how I feel when I am in the landscape.

Small Works ~ Dee's Demos Small Works ~ Dee's Demos
In my acrylics and watercolor classes, I do almost-weekly demos, in which I will do a small study to illustrate a particular process or design element.  Currently, I have so many of these little gems [usually 5" x 7," mounted in an 11" x 14" gallery mat and acetate envelope], I am selling them for $30 each or four for $100.  If you have any interest or questions about these, please contact me,
