This calf looks a little scrappy to me.  This is painted on an 8 x 8 x 2" canvas.  I am painting a lot in preparation for many upcoming Spring shows.  The next show I have coming up is the Fairhope Arts and Craft Show March 14, 15 and 16.  After that I have three during the month of April and a couple in May.   Sold

pretentious poultry

My sister and brother in law had roosters and chickens for a couple of years.  It has been a few years since the birds all moved on to poultry paradise. I used to get so excited entering their long driveway and seeing them running around.  I was fortunate to get some nice pictures that I have painted over and over.  This bird is painted on a 12 x 24 x 2" canvas.sold

I have had so much fun painting these ladies that I photographed on Dorchester Bay in Boston.  I love the baggy suit, stick legs and round belly.  They always make me smile.  This one is painted on a 6 x 6 x 2" canvas.
I bet the folks in Boston are longing for the days when they can put on a swim suit .

I have never painted a schnauzer before but Milo was pretty fun.  He was commissioned by a friend, Dee, to give to her oldest son.  Dee and I go way back to high school.  We were in art classes together a couple of years. I remember talking and cutting up more than producing art.  I got my pay back a few years later when I went on to teach high school art.  Milo is painted on an 8 x 10 x 2" canvas.sold

I have pretty much been holed up in my studio taking advantage of some conflict free days.  I have a lot of images that I want to paint but not enough time to get to them.  This mother and calf spent a lot of time checking me out.  I was thankful they did! This is painted on a 22 x 28 x 2" canvas.sold

Happy Valentines day and have a good weekend!

new cow

So pleased to have sold most of my cow paintings. 
  Nothing makes me happier than to get to paint more.  This one is painted on a 24 x 36 x 2" canvas.  

Ruthie is showing the scale of this painting in relation to her feline form.  She turned a year old and has taken over our house.  I have turned into the crazy cat lady and have about two hundred pictures of her on my i pad.  She is irresistible.  And.... my furniture is irresistible to her claws.  The downside.sold

new babies

A friend and her sisters commissioned me to paint these young Westies for their Mom. They surprised her with the portrait during a fun get away to Mexico.  Boy, that sounds good right now.  This is painted on an 11 x 14 x 2" canavs.

I just returned from Nashville where I participated in the Lipscomb Academy Fine Arts Show.  Happy to report that I made some new friends and many of my paintings have new homes.  I love going to Nashville and it seems like I discover something new and wonderful about it each time.  Sunday morning I had a chance to walk around beautiful Radnor Lake.  I went early so there were only a  few humans.  It felt like it was just me and LOTS of deer.  So fun!
