Oil on board

These orchids were  inspired by a book of botanical illustrations that I have by Alexandre Brun. A beautiful collection called The Forgotten Orchids.

Bananza Troop Trailer

Here is the latest game app we developed. Brilliant Charles Whitley did an amazing job with all the coding. My awesome nephew Jesse A. Lopez and I did all the graphics.  The magnificent Kristin Shand Turner wrote the original score, "Theme From Bananza Troop" which is what is playing in the trailer.  It is currently in review and should be available within a week or so.  Our website  has more info.  Getting this game out has taken me away from painting but it was worth it.  I think it is really fun to play and great to look at.

This is my second attempt at trying to incorporate what I learned from Goerschner's book. I am pretty happy with it.

Goerschner Landscape
Oil on canvas board
18 x 24

 I have been reading through Ted Goerschner's Oil Painting the Workshop Experience the past couple of weeks. I have been copying all of his paintings trying to learn how he achieved certain results. Needless, to say, I really like his paintings. Anyway, this is the final one I did. It is my favorite in the book. I think it turned out pretty darn good. Now I hope I can take what I learned and incorporate into my own images and paintings.

I have been gone from painting for a long time but I have been busy learning Adobe Illustrator. My husband and I have been developing Iphone/Ipad apps. This one is called Pop Dem Reps, and is our first. You choose to be a Democrat (donkey) or a Republican (elephant) and try to pop your opponent. Teapots come along and cause all sorts of trouble. It's a simple but fun game. Our nephew Jesse A. Lopez (a great graphic artist) did most of the game art. But I did the bottom two screens. If you want to see the game in action go to and click on the video.
