Today I’d like to share the work of artist Frank Covino, who specializes in oil paintings and portraitures. He is also an excellent teacher, teaching classical techniques that you can apply eventually on your own original work. His website is Some of my very favorite pieces of his original work are not on his website but you can check out what he’s done in case you want to take classes from him or commission or portrait.


Today I would like to share the art of a woman who has and continues to be an inspiration to me. She only started art once the kids were grown and out of the house. Once she began, she very quickly had her studio, where she created all kinds of beautiful works in many different genres, and was exhibiting, selling her work, and winning awards. Anything she touches, she turns to art. She makes jewelry, prints, paintings, and more. Even the way she decorates her home is pure art. She is a living, breathing example of how it’s never too late to follow your heart, to create joy in doing your life’s passion, and to thrive. You can see more of her work at

Today I am featuring a few of her paintings, and next year I will feature a couple mandalas from her gorgeous and intricate manadala series.

Artist’s note: “My paintings are inspired by my fascination with texture, color and composition. Originally trained in calligraphy, my explorations of media have included printmaking, watercolor, pastel, acrylic, and oil painting. My abstract paintings draw heavily upon my exploration of color and medium and are influenced by the organic world around me. My focus has been Asian-inspired art and I continue to draw upon that genre of art in my abstract work.  Harmony and balance are key elements in this series of artwork.”
