a friend of mine


My husband said I have been on a cow painting jag. Sorry if you do not like cows.  I am weak.  Their sweet faces call out to me.  This one is painted on a 15 x 30 x 2" canvas.

I am preparing for the Bluff Park Art Show this Saturday in Birmingham.

Really big cow

This is painted on a 3 x 5 ft canvas.  I am terrible at photographing large paintings so my son Clint gave me a little assistance. It also gives you a little perspective of the size of the painting because he is right under 6' tall. I did not accessorize my front porch to go with the painting but it does.

This 30 x 30" piece was commissioned by a family from Asheville, North Carolina. One of my favorite places to visit.

My next show is the Bluff Park Art Show held right here in my home town of Birmingham.  The date is Saturday, October 1st  and the hours are 9 - 5.

sweet days of summer

I struggled through this 24 x 36 x 2" for the last couple of days.  I wanted to do something a little more colorful.

color my world

If you around my age( I will be 55 next week) you probably had "color my world" by the band Chicago as your prom theme song.  I turned on music as I sat down to write this and it was the first song to play and provided a nice title for this painting. It may be my least favorite song by Chicago.

This is painted on a 30 x 40 x 2" linen canvas.  I have a client who would like a background similar to this so this was a warm up/try out. I like it.sold

Does anybody really know what time it is?

The band Chicago gave me a great title for my latest cow painting.  Things cows think about #1.

Happy to be home from my latest show with a lot fewer paintings.  I hope the new owners are enjoying them as much as I did painting them.  One thing I hear a lot from folks at shows is that my booth makes them smile.  Could you ever ask for a nicer compliment?  We all need more things to smile about. This is painted on a 36 x 36 x 2" canvas.sold

My next shows are as follows:

Monte Sano Art Festival  Sept 17 and 18  Huntsville, AL

Bluff Park Art Show Oct 1   Birmingham, AL

Telfair Art festival Nov 11-13  Savannah, GA

big mad cow

This is a commissioned piece for a new patron from Michigan.  She saw a painting I did a couple of years back titled "mad cow".  The painting was sold and small and she needed a bigger one.  I painted this 24 x 24 x 2" for her.  Every state needs a little bit of Alabama color in it.

I am participating in Art in the Park in Marietta, Georgia this Saturday- Monday.  The hours are 10 -5 each day.  Come see me if you are in the area.

Hope you have a fun and restful Labor day weekend!
