Painting is an essential part of Peggy’s happiness and expresses her joy in God’s creation. Her landscapes are memories of family travel, and her still life paintings are usually flowers from her garden with family pots and vases. Peggy’s commissioned portraits are the children or grandchildren of neighbors, friends and new patrons. Interesting portraits emerge from her travels to Egypt and Morocco. To Peggy, a child’s face seems perfect, perhaps a result of many years teaching children.
Trying to capture the intricacies, colors or designs in nature I attempt to find new ways to catch the light or see into the shadows.
