This painting was inspired through my observations of the seasonal change of colors in the Ozarks.  Seemed like this year it was slow to happen but turned out to be one of the most beautiful Falls I have ever seen. These colors plus so many more contrasted against a blue sky or a cloudy sky, darks of tree trunks, etc.,  Beauty truly surrounds us everywhere. Take some time to observe, soak it in and enjoy!

From "Colors on my Palette, Artist Interviews"

Question: What do you listen to when you paint?

Answer: Music is inspirational to me. I listen to all kinds, Jazz, Classical, Rock, Country, etc., I seem to enjoy instrumentals the most. I go through periods when I will listen to the same artist for weeks at a time. I will definitely stick with the same CD through the entirety of a painting, as it sets the mood. My husband plays guitar and enjoys picking out music for me to listen to. There are times when I will paint without music. Not many, but I seem to go through those times as well. More of the interview can be read: HERE

This painting inspired by an older CD by Sleeping At Last, Storyboard. Lyrics by Ryan O'Neal. 🎶

Question: Do you have a favorite piece that you have created? What makes it special to you?

Answer:  Yes, I have a painting that was a collaboration between myself and my grand-daughter, Penelope. We spend a lot of time together and at times it's in my home studio where she also has her own little studio. We were spending time there one day when I decided I could get an underpainting done while we were messing around. I pulled out a large square canvas, set it on the easel and put 70's Carpenter's music on. We both grabbed a large brush and I gave her the spray bottle. We had the best time dancing, dipping the brushes with color, swinging them on the canvas and spraying water. She titled the painting "Rainbow Water". Later that week I finished the painting. The next time I picked her up from school she told me the art teacher had taken her brush away.  I said "on no" and asked her "what happened?" She said, "well, I was painting and swinging my brush around, you know like you and I where doing to the music"___So, a little explaining between at home and classroom expectations was forthcoming!

From "Where Art Lives, Color My Palette Interview": 

Question: What is your first memory of art?

Answer:  There are two that come to my mind, both at around the age four. The first one is of standing by my mother's easel painting on a small canvas with oil paints. She still has that painting! It's your typical little house, with a tree next to it on grass. The colors are interesting as the whole sky area was painted orange rather than blue. The memory that stands out the most though, is probably because I got in trouble for it. My parents had friends over one night and they brought their kids over to play. I took the kids and showed them how to draw. The only problem was that I was drawing on my mother's oil paintings with crayons. I wasn't trying to be mean, nor did I mean any harm I just really thought that it was OK! Well, as you can imagine it wasn't!

I recently had the honored to be interviewed with "Where Art Lives Magazine"! I thought this was a really good question as it is oftened asked. 

Interview question: 
How do you know when a painting is finished? Answer:  How do you know when you are in love? You just know. It can't be measured in time. Sometimes it can happen just as you've begun a painting. Most of the time there is a beginning stage and then the struggle. This is the difficult time as you know it just isn't happening and yet you can't let go until it does. Lastly, comes THAT moment. It may be just as you've laid a stroke of color or line down and it clicks. You know it's good.  The rest of the question and answer interview can be read in "Where Art Lives Magazine": HERE
