Yellow Bucket - SOLD

This is a little boy having fun on the beach. I love watching children play in the water - complete abandonment and lack of fear.  When do we lose that?  This painting was again a Daily Paintworks challenge to complete a painting using only 3 primary colors and mixing all other colors from those three; red, blue and yellow.

A Friendly Welcome -SOLD

  This is a 8" x 8" oil on artist panel from a photo provided by Ruth Archer.  The scene is in Greece.  Thank you Ruth!  I would love to go to Greece one day but for now enjoy the travels of Ruth.

Little Red Roof Cottage - SOLD

  This was a daily challenge from Daily Paintworks - it was so hard.  The challenge was to complete a painting to submit that was only on a canvas 2 1/2" x 3 1/2".  That's little!

Brave Love

Puppy Love - SOLD

One of the very special nurses who worked with me at Cullman Regional Medical Center posted a precious picture of her little girl holding her puppy.  I kept this in my file to paint one day and today was the day.  Isn't she the perfect example of someone who loves their puppy.

Mommy Love - NFS

I have been experimenting with some small canvas samples to see how paint displays on each.  I learned a very important lesson.  I have asked Audie in the past to critique some of my work.  I realized Audie is color blind........why would I ask him?
