Hello -- it's getting close to Christmas and I decided to give my husband this painting as a gift; he's flying in today for the holidays from Costa Rica where he's been working this past month and he really misses our very special dog, Coco. People often confuse Coco with Cocoa or even Koko, but our dear, sweet-natured furry friend, a Siberian Husky with ice blue eyes that pierce your soul, has been named after the delicious insides of a coconut, which by nature is white, like her. We thought it apt as she was born in the tropics and does quite well despite the heat. Here she is keeping cool with Victor in our pool.

This is an acrylic on wraparound canvas measuring approx. 18 x 13 inches -- and obviously not for sale! Happy painting to all, and my best wishes for this holiday season and new year to come... Elfi.

A goodday to all -- this acrylic on canvas had been sitting patiently on an easel awaiting my attention for some time, abandoned for other projects. I decided to give it some attention and here's the result. This area is abundant in these types of palms and from the first moment I saw them I thought of them as "bearded ladies" with their dying foliage hanging down.

Bearded Ladies measures 15.5 x 20 inches with a wrap-around canvas approx. 1.5 inches deep on the stretcher bars. Anyone interested in purchase contact me here. $125.00 U.S + shipping.

It's December and the weather at this time of year is unpredictable. Sudden storm clouds loom on the horizon and either dissipate at sea or make their gloomy sojourne over our beaches to pour out their hearts and souls onto the sand.
That black and blue cloud rising off the horizon looks almost like a wave about to crash on the shore as it nears menacingly. The air at such a time is crisp as fresh linen and filled with the promise of a dramatic downpour. Very invigorating.
