"What lies beneath..."

Currently on display at Varnish Gallery, SF thru Dec. 9th

"I paint mainly in oils. I have just begun using acrylics as well, but I love the feel of oil paints as you move them around the board. The work I have created for Varnish is for a show entitled "Life Aquatic". After sitting down to begin painting with this theme in mind, I knew I had to start off with a piece about how I hate the water. Why? Because a boyfriend once told me while we were splashing around in Lake Michigan that there was a body that hadn't been found from days earlier somewhere in the lake (he made this up) and if I felt anything touch me, it might be that.

Hence, it's years later and I still don't like the water.... "

we just had the pleasure of meeting Beth and seeing her work and fell in love with both her and her pieces! SHE ROCKS! If you have a chance to see any of her work, do it!

I think I am going to save up for one of her pieces...I need to have one.

Thanks for mentioning her on your blog!
