CANVAS Outdoor Museum
Winner of the CANVAS Local Showdown for 2016!
I was the only woman painter selected to participate, was chosen after a lengthy application and portfolio review process. The seven artists selected for the “Local Artist Showdown” were given a 20-foot shipping container to use as their canvas. My mural was 48-feet by 9-feet on three sides of the container. The theme of the event was “Connections,” and my art used the juxtaposition of white and black, plus a streak of rainbow colors, to illuminate this idea. The shipping containers were installed in the Northwood Village neighborhood of West Palm Beach, but are now on Flagler Blvd. in downtown West Palm Beach, Florida. The public voted for their favorite via the CANVAS app. As the winner, I will be given the opportunity to paint a permanent mural, during next year’s CANVAS Outdoor Museum event. CANVAS Local Showdown, is sponsored by West Palm Beach Art in Public Places (AiPP), the West Palm Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), and CANVAS Art Charities.

Private Residence in Jupiter
This mural was above a fireplace in a private residence in Jupiter, Florida. It measured about 4 1/2 feet x 8 1/2 feet and was completed in 2012. The owner had the molding up and wanted this particular painting reproduced. It was done in acrylic directly on the wall and took about 18 hours.
This was a reproduction of Grant Wood's famous "American Gothic". I wanted to give it a twist, so since I was to be performing in a coffee house type lounge, sponsored by Lexus, I added a coffee cup to the piece. It's a subtle change that many didn't even notice (of course there was a lot of wine being served, which may have had something to do with it). It was about 8' x 8' and took about 10 hours tom complete.
I have a personal connection with Grant Wood, in that my grandparents were close friends with him at the University of Iowa, and my grandmother actually dated him before she married my grandfather, Harry Stinson, a noted sculptor and painter.
