Hi there! This is painted on a 11 x 14 canvas painted from a reference photo I took last summer. I loved the little girl with the tube. The sea gull wasn't there but I thought it added some humor to it.
Starting work on a painting for a show called "Red" in February. I like the theme it really leaves it open to so many possibilities.

Hi there, I haven't worked on this since Monday but I wanted to show you where it is. I painted this Monday with my group. We had a beautiful model named Ellen sit for us. I want to do a bit more work to it but I'm looking at it for now. May work on some of the skin tones, maybe lighten the eye in shadow? This is oil a 11 x 14 linen panel.

Hi! Well I painted geraniums once again, what can I say I love them. This was painted from a set up, oil on a 11 x 14 stretched canvas. The background started out a light shade of green and as you can see it evolved into this darker color.
We had a model at my Monday painting group this morning. Such fun, our model was such a lovely young gal and did a great job of sitting still. I'm still tweaking it a bit but will post it soon. Next Monday we are painting Christmas still lifes, hoping to get a painting I like for my Christmas cards this year.

Hi Everyone, Well I'm so bad, I bought yet another teapot. I was in a antique store near here and I fell in love with this brass teapot. I think part of the reason it appealed to me so much is because it is so much like one that C.W. Mundy paints in one of his dvds and I love his work. I enjoyed my first try at it and I'll give it another go before too long. This is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas.
Very excited about this Monday, we have a model coming in for my Monday painting group. She's a beautiful young gal and it is always such a treat to have a live model. Hopefully I'll get something I won't be embarrassed to show you, lol.

Hello there! I painted this recently from a reference photo I took while in Hillsboro Ohio. Our last camping trip of the year was in Hillsboro, a beautiful rolling county in Ohio with lots of farms. I took quite a few photos of this farm, they had donkeys, cows and as you can see sheep. It's great when you take a photo and you just know it's one you will paint, that's how I felt about this one. This is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas.

Hi Gang, Just a quick post to let you know my painting of a "Snow Day in Pine Hill" took 1st place the Holiday card contest. I am so thrilled and honored. Representative Beck will hang the painting in his office and the image will be used on all of his holiday cards. The photo is Representative Beck on the left and Meredith Raffel on the other side of me, she is the executive director of Mason Deerfield Arts Alliance, they sponsor the event. So I'm a happy girl tonight. Woo Hoo!

Hi there, These 3 little paintings were donated to Secret Artworks. The opening is the 18th so it's a secret until then. This is the third year I have entered paintings, this year it was by invitation only so I was honored they asked me to participate. These are all oil on 5x 7 panels. The way it works is people purchase tickets to attend the event for $125 each. You can attend the opening which include cocktails and appetizers and you get to take home one painting. We do not sign the front of the paintings and you do not know who the artist is until they take it off the wall. It's a fun event, people rush in looking for their favorite painting. They preview the art online and in the lobby of the Westin Hotel prior to the event. Not the best photo, I almost forgot to shoot them until the last minute but you can get the idea. This is the tacky box I carry some of my wet paintings around in, lol.

Hi there, Here are the other 2 paintings I am entering in the Warren County Holiday Card Show. I dropped them off today and the opening is this Saturday at Gallery 42 in Mason Ohio from 4-8. The awards ceremony is at 6 so stop by if you are in the area. Keeping my fingers crossed to win something but either way it's a nice opportunity. The show will hang for a month or so and there is the hope that they might sell during that time. Both of these are 11 x 14 and will be framed in 3" black frames. The snow scene is the park behind me and the train scene is in Lebanon, Ohio. The theme is Warren County, Ohio's playground.

Hi! For the 3rd year I am entering a Holiday card show here in Warren County. Representative Pete Beck chooses his favorite image to be his Holiday card for each year. The theme this year is Warren County "Ohio's Largest Playground". He purchases first place and 2nd and 3rd receive a cash prize and 2 honorable mentions. Last year one of my paintings took 2nd and it sold while hanging in Gallery 42 for the month of the show. I'll post the other 2 soon, I am calling this "A winter stroll in PIne Hill Park". I took this photo last winter, I loved this little gals pink and green coat. This is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas and of course will be framed for the show, I drop them off this Tuesday.
Tomorrow night is First Friday at the Middletown Pendleton Art Center from 5-9, stop by if you are in the area.
So nice of you to stop by. <3
