clover hunt

This is a commissioned piece of a patron's grandchildren.  Who did not or does not still search for four leaf clover.  I am not sure if I ever found one but it was a fun to try.  I wonder if kids with their i phones take time to do things like this anymore?  I hope so!  This is painted on a 24 x  24 x 2" canvas.

I will be in beautiful Decatur, GA this weekend for the Decatur Festival of the Arts May 26 and 27.   My father got his masters of Divinity at Emory University that is right around the corner.  A special place for him and us.

an everlasting love

I need to take a gamsol bath.  I got oil paint all over me while painting this one.  That is what you call getting into your work.  I love my oil paints.  And hydrangeas.  This is painted on a 36 x 36 x 2" canvas.
I will be at the Decatur, GA Art Festival next Saturday and Sunday, May 26 & 27.  I will celebrate my 35th wedding anniversary to Dan on the 28th.  My everlasting love.

I needed to use a palette knife today.  It is very therapeutic to scrub the paint around and just let it happen.  I am constantly challenging myself to step outside the box.  I pinch myself every day that I get to do what I love and make others happy with what I do. This is painted on a 36 x 36 x 2" canvas.

This painting will be with me at the Decatur, Ga Art Festival this May 26 and 27 in the Atlanta area.  I have never been to Decatur, GA but all who have have told me what a great place it is.

balancing act

This title kind of describes my life lately.  I have been very busy with shows but most importantly celebrating my oldest twin son's wedding. So happy to have to have a daughter in law that adds such a special addition to our family.  It feels good.

I have one more show before my summer months hiatus.  I am participating in the Decatur, GA Arts Festival.  It is Saturday, May 26 10-6 and Sunday, May 27 11-5.  Come see me if you are in the Atlanta area. 

"balancing act" is painted on a 30 x 40' linen canvas.
