Bama - SOLD

 To be fair to my Alabama friends, I painted this elephant in time for football season.  Those of you who know me know that my husband is a huge Auburn fan and he has even trained our children and grandchildren to follow in his footsteps.  No one around my house seemed impressed with an elephant only the tiger I painted earlier.

If you would like to give Bama a home you can email me at

The family I love goes crazy at football time...they even have the days counted down until the first game.   They are all Auburn fans.  Today I finished this tiger painting and asked my husband and son to name it.  Both of them simultaneously said, "Bo".  I told them that name made no sense to me at all but they assured me any good Auburn fan would understand.  Hope so!

6" x 6" on art board  $50  - you can email me at if interested in "Bo"

Three's Company - SOLD

This week the challenge was to paint cows.  I have wanted to try this for a long time but really do not feel very confident painting an animal that I have never tried before. I decided to try a little different technique with the background and I found that I really like painting cows.  I do admit I feel slightly guilty because we had hamburgers on the grill last night.

Courage - SOLD

Courage was a very special dog to someone.  His owner took him everywhere and even dressed him up on occasion.  I painted this commission for his owner as a gift from her niece.  I am thrilled when someone would ask me to take part in the creating of a special gift.  Thank you Jennifer!

Last Day of Summer

This is a little 5" x 7" on panel that is a submission for the Daily Paintworks Challenge, the Seaside Challenge.  The photo reference is one of my granddaughter and I love the muted tones.  I want to paint a larger version so this little panel was a good warm up.  This painting is $40.  You can email me at
