  1. Daphne these pieces are so intricate and realistic. You are obviously super talented and possess the ability to bring the paintings to life and capturing the beauty and essence of the area. It makes me feel like I’m there and creates the inner desire to visit the places you have painted.
    I really admire your passion for the Santa Eulalia Mission and Old Town Cordelia. I particularly love your painting of the Cordelia Rail Road Tunnel, it looks so simple and pure, yet it has a pensive and meditative atmosphere to it.
    Thank you for sharing your beautiful artwork online for all to see. Now I want to see some of the paintings in person. -Steve

    • Hi Steve,
      I just found your nice comment on my website. Thank you very much for the compliments! I liked painting the old Cordelia Railroad Tunnel too. I went to the same location for five days in a row at the same time to get the light the same. I was positioned next to an old rail road track in the spring time but the trains never passed at that time so it was a very quiet area. While painting, I started to notice some butterflies that kept fluttering around my painting. Then, for the next whole five days, a steady stream of thousands of monarch butterflies kept flying past me…I guess they were on their migration route up from Mexico or somewhere. The amazing butterflies were really beautiful and inspiring as they steadily flew by in silence. My doctor in California eventually bought that painting when it was on exhibit at the State Capital in Sacramento. If you ever want to see the paintings in person as you mentioned long ago, of course you can, just let me know. Have a great day! Daphne
