Day at the Beach

Hello and Happy New Year, Sorry I haven't posted for a bit, between the holiday and being sick this is the first thing I have painted in a while. I finally did a little painting last night and felt like a bird was the right thing to paint. The photo of the seagull came from a reference photo on Paint my Photo. This is acrylic on a 8 x 10 canvas. Have a wonderful safe holiday.

Teapot & Pear

Hello and Happy Holidays, Christmas is almost here and I think I am ready. Still sneaking in some painting time. I started this Monday and finished it today. This is acrylic on a 8 x 10 canvas. I painted the canvas black first and applied texture
. I have painted on black canvases before and I like it. Kind of nice to lay color on that black canvas, I tried to let some of it peek through the finished painting. If I don't see you before Christmas have a wonderful safe Merry Merry Christmas. Hugs to all of you

Hi there, This little painting is one of my granddogs Ginger, I gave it to my son in law yesterday for his birthday. This is acrylic on a 5 x 7 canvas. I am the chairperson for a group of artists, we meet weekly. I feel so blessed to hang with a group of people that share my love of art. We had our little Christmas party today and played the game where you can steal each others gifts. It was wild and crazy, lol. Sooo much stealing, lol. I hope you are enjoying the holidays. Please consider entering your email address in my "Google Group" box to receive my posts. Have a wonderful day
Just wanted to tell you about my good news. I was just notified I am a winner with North Light books. I entered a mixed-media competition. They chose my painting to be published in a book that is supposed to come out this next September. I'll keep you posted.

First Friday ~ Pendleton Art Center

Hello there I have been very busy working on a large painting for a competition but I wanted to post. Here is my display for the Middletown Pendleton Art Center. We will be open tomorrow night from 5-9 and on Saturday from 11-3. We normally only open on the first Friday of each month and the following day. This month we will also be open on Saturday the 15th from 11-5, we wanted to offer some additional hours with Christmas approaching. So if you live near Middletown Ohio please stop by. First Friday is such a fun night with music, food and all of the studios are open to browse. There are 4 Pendleton Art Centers and ours is the newest with 3 floors of studios. This month I have a good selection of smaller inexpensive paintings, just right for Christmas. I share my studio with 9 other very talented artists. I hope you are well on your way to be ready for Christmas, I'll be ready when I run out of time, lol. So great of you to visit me
