2015 Collector Event Sneak Preview


My 25TH Annual Collector Event in Santa Fe is Friday and Saturday, September 4th and 5th. Can you believe I’ve been exhibiting my art in Santa Fe for a quarter of a century? I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with LOTS OF FLOWERS. Here is a Sneak Preview of my silver anniversary one artist show. If any of these Original Oil Paintings grab your heart and beckon to be added to your collection just call Santa Fe Art Collector Gallery at 505.988.5545. They will cheerfully provide assistance. If a painting you’ve fallen in love with has already been spoken for I will be happy to do a commission based on that piece for you.

Please keep in mind as you go through the catalog you can click on the images to see the paintings larger.

Fragrant Retreat

Working on this painting brought wonderful memories of Santa Fe with the rounded adobe, Chili Peppers, Salvia and Sunflowers. I could almost smell the scent of Lilacs as I worked on this piece. Wouldn’t you love to escape to this Fragrant Retreat?

Bluebonnets, Red Barns and Windmills. What’s better than spring in Texas?

SH4015 Crimson Profusion 14x24Crimson Profusion

14″ x 24″   painted on sides of gallery wrap canvas   $890

As gardeners we have to plan our landscaping color schemes around the flowering times of plants. BUT….the joy of being an artist is we can make flowers bloom whenever we’d like. In Provence, along the Cote d’Azur, Lavender usually flowers in July and August, about 2 months after Poppies. However; I can make them all bloom at the same time in Crimson Profusion.

You can click on the image to view it larger. Each piece in the pair is 14″ x 14″ on a gallery wrap canvas with the painted image extending on to the sides. The special price for our collector event is $590 each.


Since it’s my 25th year in Santa Fe we came up with a painting size just for the occasion. The following four paintings are 14 inches tall by 11 inches wide. That adds up to 25! These pieces are painted to the edge and around the sides on gallery wrap canvas. Each is priced especially for our Collector Event at $490. Remember, I can paint a commission for you if one of the SOLD pieces has stolen your heart! Just contact the Gallery at 505.988.5545.

SH3615 Santa's Helper 14x11Santa’s Helper

Santa’s Helper is our own sweet rescue kitty, Sissie. She loves to sleep in the Santa Basket that was brought, filled with citrus, by a friend. Sissie immediately adopted the basket and I got a lucky shot of her peeking up over the side! Adding the Santa hat and presents makes her the purr-fect Christmas kitty.
