Fine Arts Portfolio

These are some of my acrylic canvas paintings and pencil drawings. Some of them were painted as a joint effort with my husband... unusual in fine arts.

We exhibited our art in Washington DC and at orchid shows all over the US, we have dozens of trophies and ribbons for our paintings, airbrush and drawings. Most of our best canvases were sold at these shows. The subject matter are primarily orchids we grew in our hobby collection.

The images below are my paintings and drawings that currently hang in our home. The canvases are mostly acrylic brush, but some are a combo of acrylic brush and airbrush for depth (my husband is the airbrusher). They are not all signed, because if we haven't sold a painting, I have a habit of wanting to rework parts of paintings or adding to colored pencil drawings later that I don't consider completely 'done'.

The last image is a large wooden chest we made and painted together for our son (sitting on top) in acrylic on canvas gesso'd over wood, something he can keep, and hopefully value, for the rest of his life.

These are not graphics, but they show my grounding in fine arts.
