I was encouraged by fellow artists at the Brentwood Show to do some bigger paintings...yikes! I wasn't sure I could deliver but when I stopped in at Plaza art store and saw their display of large canvases on sale it seemed like a sign to get my courage up and give it a good try. I chose a subject I had painted before, the Abbey de Senanque in Provence where we visited a few years ago. This made composition decisions so much easier and let me play with a subject already familiar to me. I call it "Lavender Fields" and you can see it in person this weekend at the Lipscomb Art Show in Nashville!!

Hello! My name is Wendy and I am passionate about oil painting! Whether in the studio or out in Mother Nature, I get lost in the experience of capturing on canvas the moment and the feel of what I am painting. I pour my love and energy into every single piece of artwork and I hope it shows! This blog is a place where I can use words to talk about art, painting, life, faith, things that make me laugh, and things that inspire. I love every response, so don't be shy about leaving a comment...
