Goldenrod was the state flower of Alabama for fifty or so years. It is now the camellia. I love seeing pastures of  cows when the goldenrod is blooming.
 I hope this sunny scene will help  brighten your New Year.   This is painted on a 3 x 3' canvas.
Thank you for taking the time to check out my art work.  Your comments and support mean a lot to me.  I hope the coming year brings you good things and happiness! Happy 2014!sold

 This was the year of painting labs for me.  Think I painted four or five this Christmas. Emma belongs to one of my friend's daughters.  The final painting is a bit different from this because we decided to unfold her right ear.  I did not get a chance to photograph it but we both liked it a little better.  This is painted on an 8 x 10"canvas.sold

war eagle

 These kumquats came from Auburn, Alabama.  I really did not think of the title until after I painted it but it works.  The Auburn Tiger's colors are orange and blue.  I have a son and alot of friends who went there so I am a fan. I am one of those crazy people who also cheers for Alabama.  Hoping Auburn wins the National  Football Championship Jan 6th. "war eagle" is painted on a 5 x 7" linen panel.sold

precious cargo

 And engineer!  This is a Christmas commission for a new friend.  I have a soft spot for Moms of twins so I worked very hard to make this painting work. I tried to abandon ship once but then tried another photo and it came together.  These darling twin girls do not have much hair now so my attempts kept making them look like little old men.  I wish you could see how beautiful these girls are in person.  They all three have huge, blue eyes.  This painting really makes me smile.  It is painted on an 8 x 10".sold

 Lucky is a camera shy dog so I made a little house call to try and capture his gorgeous face.  He is the companion to one of my friend's parents.  Her Dad recently passed so Lucky is even more special to her Mom now.  This is painted on an 8 x 10" canvas.

My internet has been on the fritz for a couple of weeks now.  I have been very busy painting but not able to post.  I am finishing up my last commission needed before Christmas and then I plan to take a wee break.

If you are in the Birmingham area, I am participating in the Mountain Brook Art Association Holiday show in the lower level of Brookwood Mall.  Lots of wonderful artists represented.  Hours are  the same as the mall hours.sold
