 I think this cow looks rather posh with her beautiful markings, colors and curly coif. This is one of the few black cows I have painted.  I struggle with getting the right temperature in the black.  Like this one. This is painted on a 12 x 12", clear primed , gallery wrapped canvas.sold

happy moo year

 These cows do not look very excited about 2013.  Just another day in paradise. My strange mind was just thinking yesterday about how cool it is as humans to have so many different facial expressions. ( I have been inside a gloomy apartment for far too many days now.)
I hope for these cows and all of you that 2013 is the best year ever.
This painting is painted on a 30 x 40" gallery wrapped canvas.

moe and curly revamped

 I found this painting in the back of the closet of my very unorganized and incredibly messy painting room.  Thought I had sold it.  I touched up Moe and Curly and they are ready to go.  This is painted on an 11 x 14" linen canvas.
I have been painting some but have enjoyed taking a bit of a break after painting so many commissions.  We are getting closer to moving into our home.  Still hoping for late January.  My studio is close to being finished and I will post some pictures of it in a few days.sold

 The last grand child commission for my friend.  He is the second oldest but somehow got saved for last.  I love the combination of primary colors in this piece. This is painted on an 8 x 10" gallery wrap.
I have been very busy finishing up commission pieces that are Christmas gifts.  Have a couple that will need to be posted after the big day.
How many days left until Christmas??  Plan to get started on my shopping and celebrating tomorrow.sold

 Fordham is a true beach boy.  He is the grandson of my friend and he is growing up having the beach as his play ground.  This is a commission piece and is painted on an 8 x 10" gallery wrap.  I really like the energy in this piece.
I had a good time in Nashville at the Brentwood art show.  It is always fun getting to see new and old artist and patron friends.  It is great to be home and now I get to have fun painting Christmas commissions.  It really is fun being a part of presents.  I love hearing stories of folks reactions and of how special the paintings are to them.sold
