This painting was inspired by art I viewed in Italy and by an Arabian horse that I loved.  I called her Lady Valentine, and I loved watching her run in the pasture even more than I enjoyed riding her.  This painting  of acrylic. iridescent paint, and ink
could be framed if desired, but it is painted on the sides and wall-ready.


16" x 20" Acrylic and Mixed Media on Canvas


In the center of the large feathers is a crest with the word "dupon", thus the title.The dupon paper
was acquired in Arrezzo, Italy on a shopping bag used to wrap a Christmas gift I purchased at a store there.  I suspect that dupon was the name of the store since no translation was readily available.   Mixed media found in this artwork includes acrylic, metallic paint, ink, paper, feathers, and pastels.The canvas is finished on the sides so while Dupon could be framed, it is not necessary

Tree of Life Collage

Ironically Tree of Life Collage was completed under the direction of  art professor, Dr. Andrew Zallar shortly before his sudden death in December, 2013...  "Andy" quickly became an inspiration and friend and I was highly honored when he nominated me to become a membt of Inspired Artists Society.  I looked forward to his continued encouragement, not knowing that our acquaintance would be so short. When Andy took his heavenly flight, he left a host of former student admirers who hope to make him proud
 of our continued endeavors in art.
