back off

This painting expresses my feelings of when people get too close to me when I am out walking. I do my part to keep a safe distance but it seems like others are too wrapped up in conversation to do like wise.  Do your part and stay home and when out exercising, keep your distance.

Hope this defiant chick brings a smile to your face. Stay safe.

day job

I am not sure what their night job is?  Laying eggs. I guess. This is painted on an 8 x 10" canvas.

I hope you are one of the lucky ones who is staying home. I am thinking and praying for all those who are having to work in the midst of this virus.  Prayers for our world.

these days

I have not painted a cow in a while.  That is pretty unusual for me because they are one of my favorite subjects.  Who could resist smiling at a face like this?  This is painted on a 24 x 24 x 2" canvas.  All of my shows for the Spring have been postponed or cancelled.  Email me for information on any of my art. I sell it. :)

Please stay safe and at home if you can.  I am saying prayers for all of our workers who can not.

socially distant

I hope you are all coping okay with being "cooped" up. Get it....? chicken painting, "cooped up".? Maybe I am going a little stir crazy from all that is going on and not knowing how long it will last.
I like this painting but it is a little darker than my usual. I built a lot of texture with acrylic paint underneath the rooster that is painted with oils.  I used palette knives to apply the paint.  Who knows what will come out of me this next couple of months.
Please stay safe and at home if you can!  "Socially distant!"  We are going to be so tired of that phrase.

chick break

I am working on a large commission that has a lot of pattern so I needed a little organic shape break.  I am not a detailed person so it is good to challenge myself.  Just not too often. :) Yeesh!  This little chick is painted on a 6 x 8".  It was one of my sister's chicks so I have painted it a few times.  I like the way it is standing tall.  Something we all need to try and do during these scary days. Stay in and stay safe.

rise above

Painting away the gloomies. This is painted on a 16 x 20" linen canvas.  It always makes me happy to paint an expressive rooster.  Try it!

I had a great show at ArtXtravaganza in Knoxville, TN.  It is always fun to visit with old friends and make new ones.  I like my job.

Wash your hands.

act out

Felt like painting something colorful on a very rainy day. First of all, I added texture with thick, acrylic paint . I let that get good and dry and then used oils with a palette knife to paint the rooster. It is painted on an 11 x14” canvas.
I will be in Knoxville, TN for ArtXtravaganza at the Webb School this Friday through Sunday. Come see me if you are in the area!
