Summer in my garden means the peegee hydrangeas are in bloom with their big heavy blossoms, and plums are at the local farmers market.  Sun and shadow dapples dance across the table in the back yard. Palette knife work gives a rich wonderful texture to the oil paint.

Getting to Know Roxanne

Some paintings have the power to draw a person from across the room. Those are the artworks that Roxanne Steed loves the most. For her, the two best things about a painting are color and texture. To add interesting edges to her paintings, she uses everything from a palette knife to a squeegee. She loves celebrating the beauty of life and enjoys gardening — including “therapeutic weeding” — and planning where to travel next. She has traveled to Ireland for many years to paint.
