Hey y'all, I'm a southern lady who loves art and all it's forms for the most part. I love to garden, and paint the flowers that I grow. I have a website at where you can see what I do!

My book

A long time ago, I taught beginning watercolor through Auburn University's Outreach Program. In order to do it I had to take a portfolio to the Department Head of the Art Department, the regular curriculum one. I went the same day I found out I had to do that. I knew that if I didn't do it that day, I would talk myself out of it. I had barely gotten a few things out of the portfolio when he picked up the phone and called Continuing Education, (that's what they called it then)
and said "Let her teach! She can certainly do it!"

And so I did. The book started out just as handouts for each weekly lesson. The students were adults, coming from all walks of life, all the way from Deans to stay-at-home mommies. It was one of the most enriching experiences of my life. The students would stay with me all 8 weeks. Other classes did not have that kind of track record.

The first edition of the book was just typewritten pages, no pictures, no fancy anything.

But it was used by the students faithfully.

Then one day my son Kendall gave me Microsoft Publisher software as a gift. Suddenly the book took on more importance and had pictures in it. The first edition had some pictures of my students' work in it.

I bought a machine to punch holes and bind the book using the spiral or the comb method. And that's the way I publish it now.

At this time, it has grown to 43 pages. It is full of pictures and illustrations, and I have removed all the student pictures as I have lost track of those folks over time, and I wish to market it more, and I don't know how to get in touch with them to ask permission to use their work in a broader way.

The book is listed on my personal website at My Book.

More New Work

It's been awhile since I updated this site, I should be more vigilant! This one is called "Abstract Rhodies" and I really like it very much. I got to a certain point with this and thought, hey, this looks finished, I'm going to stop!

White Rhodies

Hello all, I'm so excited about this particular painting! I am making progress, after all! This is white rhododendrons, it's a half sheet, and I'm trying a new paper, Artistico Fabriano 140 lb. cold press.

I'm interested to know what you think about this one!

I would like to exhibit some other watercolor subjects with this post. There is a link to the page where you can really see them. I'm including some of them here. This first one is a full sheet done of Helen, GA. The gentleman is Charlie, my late husband.

This one is called "Road to Glory". It's not a full sheet, almost. This painting was selected by American Frame as their print of the month for March, 2007.

This is called Old Mill Stream. This painting was featured on the cover of a magazine called "Alabama Living". This is a scene I photographed near here down stream from a dam site where there had been a waterwheel type mill. The mill has since been restored.

Tubing Stream at Helen, GA. I photographed this scene standing on a bridge overlooking the tubing stream. I developed this painting from that photograph.
