Little squirrel

Hi!  This little squirrel painting is oil in a 5" x 7" canvas panel.  Squirrels are so much fun and they eat most of the feed we put out for the birds and we don't mind,  well not too much, lol.  I'm offering this one with a buy now option, $50 and I'll pay the shipping anywhere within the continental US.

Little Still Life

Hi Friends!  Spring has sprung here and I'm loving it, soon I'll be outside painting.  This little oil painting is a 5" x 7" , painted from life. 

Busy as always, just entered a couple of shows.  In May I will be the featured artist at Gallery 42 so I'm starting to think about that too.  This coming Thursday is Open House at the Artist Lounge in Mason. Stop by if you are in the area, fun night with food wine music and demos. 

Great to see you

Brush & Palette show

Hello! I paint with a group of ladies every Tueday called the Brush & Palette Painters. The group formed over 50 years ago and I'm proud to be a member. Every March we hang a show of our paintings at the Cincinnati Women's Art club in Mariemont. Friday night was our opening, such a fun night and our opening was well attended.  Yesterday myself and two other ladies from our group went back down and painted while we chatted with people that came by to see our show. I find that the majority of people that come to see you demo are artists and I'm happy to share any pointers with them I can. Please visit our show if you live near Cincinnati or come to visit. 

Here I am painting and this is a photo of my finished painting. 8" x 10" oil

Reworked this one a bit

Hi there, this painting is oil on a 8" x 10" canvas. I painted this one from a set up, I love painting from life. I looked at it for a while and found it kind of boring so went back in and added color and softened things up. I'm liking it now. 

Thanks for visiting me on this cold winter day.

Small animal paintings

Hello hello! This little duck is painted in oils in a 4" x 4" stretched canvas and the cow is also oils on a 5" x 7" panel.  My husband says animals are your thing, I do enjoy painting them but as you can tell I love to paint just everything. 

More snow here last night, I'm so ready for spring. I have places to go and things to do! Hehe

I hope the snow isn't interfering in your life too much, assuming it's winter where you are. 

See you soon

Trying new things

Hi Friends, sorry I haven't been posting as often but I am busy painting.  I started this still life a few weeks ago, it's oil in a 11" x 14" canvas.  It was fine, just fine.  Sometimes I think it isn't enough to to just paint well you need to be a bit different.  Anyway I went back into this adding soft color over the whole painting and then going back and tweaking a few areas. 

I have several things coming up.  This Thursday I am in a show called " Tiny" , I painted three 4" x 4" paintings for the show and they all were accepted.  I just entered two other shows and the whole month of March my Tuesday group The Brush & Palette Painters will have a show at the Cincinnati Womens Art Club. 

Thank you for visiting

I enjoy painting animals and I find them easier to paint than some things with their definite blocks of color.  I say that but that doesn't mean it's easy. I find that people really enjoy viewing paintings of animals too.  This beautiful cat belongs to our co-op owner, actually this is one of two cats that live at the co-op.  The dog belongs to a man I attended school with, he posted it on Facebook and I loved the image and he gave me permission to paint it.  The cat is 8" x 8" and I'll be taking it along to sell at the Northminster Art Fair next Saturday.  The dog is wet but it's available if you're interested. It is 8" x 10" and both are oil. 

So good of you to come by
