6x6 Oil on Gessobord

My 5 year old granddaughter, Kaitlyn, loves clothes. She and her mom went to 5 different stores looking for the perfect birthday outfit for her to wear to her party. This is one of her purses.

6x6 Oil on Gessobord

Last November while walking along Ponte Vedra Beach I saw this Hobie just waiting for someone to take it out. It appeared as though it had been there for quite some time.

6x6 Oil on Gessobord

This is Cosmo. He is half Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and half Poodle.....a designer dog or what we used to call a mutt. Cosmo has a great personality, is sweet, and full of energy. He thinks he is a lap dog, but believe me he is way too big to sit on anyone's lap. If Cosmo were human, he would be labeled a social butterfly. The more the merrier with humans and animals. When Cosmo enters a room there is no quiet. He's a great dog!

6x6 Oil on Gessobord

This was painted from a photograph I took in Florida last November. I know summer is just around the corner, but after all the snow and cold weather it does seem like it is slow in coming. This painting was a good reminder that warm weather will be here before we know it!

Snow tastes s0-0-0-0 good!

Waiting for the gang.

They have arrived!

Here are just 3 of the many photographs I took while taking care of 3 of my grandchildren.:-) I had such a good time and the snow - we had a foot!! - was an added bonus. Thankfully we had power, but did not have satellite for a couple of days so no tv and no computer. Not a bad thing. Snow in Texas doesn't last long and today we have sun!

10x10 Oil on Canvas Board

First, I need to apologize for the bad photograph. This was a really fun painting. I painted this lady with a palette knife. The colors went on thick and juicy. Fun and a great learning experience. Isn't every painting a learning experience?

10x10 Oil on panel

This is a painting I did from a photograph I took last spring at the Paint Out at Prairie Fest in Fort Worth. There were some fantastic artists working that day. You can get some wonderful paintings and it is just fun to be in this beautiful prairie in the middle of Fort Worth.

I haven't been able to photograph any paintings in the last few days. I need to learn how to photograph inside without getting glare. It just continues to rain and rain so I am having a difficult time getting outside to photograph.

6x6 Oil on Gessobord

These women were having the best time soaking up the sun and chatting about who knows what - but, VERY interesting I am sure.

6x8 Oil on Ampersand Gessobord

I would rather have Kelley MacDonald's blue shoes and bag, but this lady seems to be happy with her fancy hat!

6x6 Oil on Gessobord

Every time I see birds all together in a tree, on wires or signs I imagine them having a meeting. These are only a few birds. Sometimes there are dozens and it feels like an Alfred Hitchcock movie!
