I live to paint. I can’t wait to get to my studio and get lost in the process, putting paint on canvas with a palette knife, brushes and other tools. As with every painting I love to sit and visualize what it could be and intuitively let it happen. Victorious was a little girl at first and then transformed into a warrior. Her wings were created using vintage fabric from my mom. I hope you like her!

Xoxo, Dawn


Inspired by the beautiful and elegant Grace Kelly- 

Layers of paint, stencil and charcoal- she first started out as flowers but the more I worked on the canvas a figure wanted to emerge.  I went with my instincts and so happy I did!

24″x36″… question is – Do I add wings? 


Happy Valentine’s Day… a 40″x 40 mixed media heart painted on canvas with the incredible Nat King Cole’s lyrics “LOVE” written in the heart.  A little confetti throughout the painting just brings me joy. ❤️ love to your valentine! 

“Glory is her name”

Glory is 24×36, mixed media angel, using my mother’s vintage fabric.  A limited color palette.  

God Bless

Little Owls

A little painting of mixed media owls. Day 12 of Leslie Saeta 30 paintings in 30 days!  Lots of great art work from very talented artist. 

Sunflowers Bloom

I love sunflowers, I planted some this year from seeds,  It made me so happy that they grew as tall as they did.  They moved towards the direction of the sun, such an amazing flower. 

Red Poppies 

Day 1 30/30 challenge…. Repurposed a canvas, with poppies on a clear day. The poem written in the sky is from the  “My Book House” collection we grew up reading, it was book 6 “Through Fairy  Halls”,  the poem is “Fairy Forests” by Alfred Noyes.  

30 paintings in 30 days 2016

As an artist we all look for inspiration, this year’s 30 in 30 painting  is inspired from my mom (Bertie) favorite things, birds, garden flowers, coffee and the Angels that are always with us.  We lost her this year and I want to honor her a special way. My way is through art… 

Thank you to Leslie Saeta for this wonderful challenge…

My mom…dad and her eight birds…love you and God Bless
