This painting took a different turn about halfway through. I had included a coral/rust color that just wasn’t working. After it was covered over and I found the mint green I was very happy. The title comes from the effort to use 3 or 4 brushes at the same time and getting the actual strokes and paint colors to work together to represent music coming from the piano ….. Harmony!

A Dahlia For Emma


This is a triptych (artwork divided into 3 sections) painted for my 9th grandchild! The flower is one of her mother’s favorites. I did not really consider just how MANY petals were involved when I began. This painting gave me a lot of trouble because it seemed that every shadow was a different shade. However, with God’s help it turned out fine and I hope that when Emma is older she can find her name hidden in the painting!
