My original oil paintings are found in The Trinidad Art Gallery, Trinidad, California. When they are not on display they are available to purchase online and shipped without frames.
Here is the page of oil paintings that are presently available online:
Some of my oil painting images are available as 5″ x 7″ cards (complete with envelope and plastic sleeve) online. Here is one example:
“Nepali Baby”. I was helping a Montessori teacher in Kathmandu design her new Montessori school and it was time for the first meal celebration of her 6-month-old son which they allowed me to photograph for a painting. The red outfit and the flower lei is the tradition, as was the offering a small spoon of rice pudding from a silver bowl by many, many people. It was quite lovely. But it is all clear in his expression that he has had enough.
Cards that are in continued production will be listed here soon.
In the meantime, here is the page of these cards that have been discontinued and are on sale half-price:
TRINIDAD ART GALLERY
If you find yourself in or near the beautiful seaside village of Trinidad, California (5 hours drive north from San Francisco, California, and 8 hours drive south from Portland, Oregon) stop in to see a unique art gallery.
Trinidad Art Gallery is made up of 24 local artists who express themselves through oil painting, photography, sculpture, pottery, jewelry, and more in a fine arts and crafts coop. This is the only place where one can always find my oil paintings, prints, cards, and Montessori books:

PRESENTLY ON EXHIBIT AT THE GALLERY
Camel Driver at Petra in Jordon
In 2009 I painted a picture of my husband Jim reading the New York Times while sprawled on the love seat in our solarium. Here are both the original photograph and the finished painting. If it reminds you of the style of Henri Matisse I wouldn’t mind :-). This is an example of how I “paint from photographs.” As you can see, the photographs, or sketches I make while traveling are only inspiration. I am not a fan of paintings that look like the photograph.
Study of Fumee d’Amber Gris by John Singer Sargent
In the traditional of art in Europe through the ages, I copy paintings when the project can help me learn. There is nothing like trying to reproduce a great painting to teach one about color mixing, brush work, and much more. It was bought by a local art collector, put in a beautiful frame in the style of the time of Singer, and graces a lovely home.
