I have three more commissions to do and then I have to take a break from them and paint for lots of upcoming shows. My next show is in Knoxville, Tennessee March 4-6. The Webb school ArtXtravaganza. I love the Knoxville area because my husband has a lot of family close by and it is a beautiful area. The first show for me in Knoxville. I understand they like a lot of orange there.

Beginning in April I have five weekend shows in a row. From two in my hometown, then to Houston, Texas, and ending that run in Nashville. I do not need to have a lot of days that I do not feel like painting.

I took some photographs on my way to see my mom in law in Chattanooga the other day and this was one of my favorite shots. I could have titled it ' "fat cow on a skinny canvas". 12 x 36 x 2". I have recently realized how much I love the colors of winter. This cow was off by itself and stared at me the few minutes I was photographing her and her pasture mates. That make me SO happy!
Hope your week is a good one!

The reference photo for this painting was loosely based on a picture that an artist friend I have never met sent me. Martine Alison lives in France and she takes the time to visit my blog and comment on my work fairly regularly. She has a wonderful blog and a very creative and whimsical style of painting. Take a minute to check her out. She travels a lot and always has gorgeous photos to share. The blog is in French but you can switch the language once you get there.
"comfortable" is painted on a 36 x 48 x 2" canvas.

A friend commissioned me to paint Sonny for her daughter's Christmas present. This much loved dog was named after the owner's beloved grandfather. So fun to paint such a beautiful animal and make someone happy with the result. I would like to have a pet named after me one day. I don't think I have ever heard of a pet named Carol.?? This is painted on an 8 x 10 x 2" canvas.
