sunny day

I used so many different texture gels in this painting

while the sunsets

I was painting outside in the afternoon at my dads house and i saw what looked liked branches dripping. The light reflecting through the trees made it look like they were disappearing. I dramatized the dripping effect and the lighting.

It can't break me

My mother loved dragon flies. This painting interprets the transition from the cancer taking over and her breaking free. I used black tinted pumice gel and of course acrylic.


My great grandmother painted floral themed ideas. She didn't start painting until really late in her life. I decided to use black and purple rather than the usual floral colors. It has an unintended gothic spin to it that worked out.

Beauty Within

I absolutely love mirrors and the tricks you can do with them. I recently discovered how great texture gel is. In this painting I used crackle gel on the top left corner of the mirror. I have her leaning up on it with one hand while her body covers it, we connect the dots in our minds.

lost inside

I chose contrasting colors along with the bold black and white. looking at it after a while can become confusing (like an illusion). you cant tell if the white is the bone or the orange or the black. love these kinds!

sinking in

I've been experimenting with the look of organized drips. this painting protrudes the way i feel after i get of work...thats right i can't paint all day hahah. by the end of the day i feel worn out and mentally strained. the black is a sense of tired/ sleepiness and the white is my energy

Giving Up

I've been thinking more and more about how the hardships kept building up. I've been able to overcome and cope with them simply talking with my twin. She's the only one that can truly understand how i feel without becoming intrusive or overbearing. theres no end but it isn't as bad as it could be. I'm giving up on my past and am starting fresh. I want to be happy and make other people happy like I use to. This is a new start for me and my paintings.

We are the unwilling, Led by the unqualified, To do the unnecessary. For the ungrateful.

I wanted to play around with reflections in mirrors. For some reason I felt like having the glass crack. lo and behold the woman that i painted this for her husband had passed away from a concussion on his right side of the head (our left on mirror). This painting meant a lot more to me after I was told about that story. Love ya Renee!
