My husband loves Auburn and the mascot for Auburn is the Tiger. He spends a lot of time watching football and during those games, I spend a lot of time painting. This is a 16 " x 20" gallery wrapped original oil painting. The reference photo I used came from Angeline Rijkeboer. I plan on painting an Elephant next - in honor of Alabama fans.

What a great rainy day for painting with the exception that I have moved outside to the deck - got rained on - moved back inside to my art "corner" then outside again.....but a great day --- it is the Cat's Meow of a day...This painting is a 8" x 10" on linen painted with oils using brushes and a palette knife..I am headed to the Art Colony in a week to paint non stop for a week with the artist in residence, Nancy Chaboun and many of my artists friends from all over whom I meet with every year. Can't wait - hope to have some new paintings completed.

Beautiful Labor Day on Lake Martin! I am so glad I have gotten a chance to be home long enough to paint. I have been working out of town a lot and I have been committed to completing a portrait of a friend's child. I finally finished that portrait today. I have carried this child around with everywhere trying to "get to know him" before I could actually paint his portrait. He has gone with me to California and he has kept me company while I have been on the treadmill and many airplanes. Today he said, "OK - enough" so I took the opportunity to go outside on my deck and paint plein air.
