"need you"

My Mom gave me some of her Easter decorations after lunch yesterday.  I am painting some smaller pieces for my upcoming shows.  Hydrangeas might be my favorite flower.  I love all the variety in their color.  This is painted on an 8 x 8 x 2" canvas.
I would love to see you in Oxford, MS this Saturday, April 27 for the Double Decker Art Festival.  I will be in Mountain Brook, AL the following Saturday, May 4, for Art in the Village. It is the Mountain Brook Art Association's annual Spring show. It is the first art show I ever participated in and is still one of my favorites.

Easter parade

I have not posted a lot lately because of being so busy at shows.  My last two shows were great but very challenging weather wise.  My tent and work flew back 50 feet in Jackson, MS a few weeks ago due to straight line winds. My husband and I were there and were grateful not to be harmed or harm anyone else. I had to replace all my tent poles and one vinyl side.  I use a wonderful Trimline tent from Flourish.  I had it weighted down with sixty pounds on each corner.  It was very scary and a first for me.  I was fortunate to just lose two pieces.  So.... I only got in one day at that show.  The next weekend I had a show in Atlanta.  The Dogwood Show was great but 75% of the artists (including me)  took their work down after two days because of bad weather forecast for the third day.  No regrets.  This art biz is not always the easiest.

I will be in Oxford , MS next Saturday, April 27 for the Double Decker Art Festival.  The following Saturday, May 4 I will be in Birmingham for Art in the Village.  It is an annual show for the Mt Brook Art Association.  Two shows that I love dearly so I am hoping for clear to partly cloudy skies.

This Easter cow is painted on an 8 x 8" canvas.  Happy Easter!

a matter of time

More cotton.  I swiped this cotton from the fields next to my sister's home in north Alabama. It is so pretty when it is in bloom.  This piece is painted on a 12 x 24 x 2" canvas. sold

Come see me in Ridgeland, Mississippi at the Ridgeland Fine arts Festival this Saturday and Sunday, April 6 and 7, if you are in the area.  The following weekend, April 12-14, I will be in Atlanta at the Dogwood Arts Festival.  Come see!
