Paintings

Welcome to my Gallery page! I have been painting acrylics on canvas since I was a teenager.  My subjects often consist of either landscapes or still lifes.  When I wrote my book Madonna:  Blonde Ambition in 1991, I painted a portrait of Madonna.  I was honored when the painting was featured in the 2004 book Madonna in Art.  I painted the portrait of Joni Mitchell in 2004, and it was featured in my book about the singer:  Joni Mitchell.  I continue to paint and sketch at home, and when I travel.  I have also done woodcuts and watercolors.
