Introduction Hi! I am Sunny, and I love to paint! I started painting at 12 years of age when I was bedfast with Typhoid Fever. Since that time I have painted off and on through the years of raising a family, home-schooling our youngest, and running a family home-business. I work in the medium of oil, and had had no actual training, until 2011 I was able to participate in a 12 week online class, instructed by Johannes Vloothuis. My paintings have been displayed publicly, and have won some awards. I have sold paintings in several different states. Since my husband passed in June of 2011, I am once again pursuing my painting on a regular basis. I enjoy expressing my thoughts, dreams and memories through my painting. It is my goal to render paintings that will move the heart and emotions, bringing pleasant memories, inspiration, and enjoyment to others through my efforts.

When your science teacher smashed a frozen rose with a hammer, did you warm the petals to bring them back to life?

No..... I got out my paintbox and painted it from memory :)
