Patina Paint



I am blessed to pursue beauty and creativity with a passion. Traveling to Italy and France is like studying with a master each time. A simple walk on a dusty road to discover an abandoned stone house makes a memory that lingers forever. I love the soft light at dusk on a crumbling old wall. It’s shadows and shades stay with me long after that walk.
