Spring Break!

11 x 14 oil on canvas
Green Mountain Stream

It has been a great Spring Break for me! I spent 2 entire days outside taking pictures and finding new things to paint and this is one of them. This is a little stream that flows down Green Mountain and I took at least a million pictures of it. I just loved how all the bright green moss was growing all down the banks and up the trunk of the tree. I definitely had fun with this one! I also took many pictures of cows and sheep this week so you know what will be coming next! E-mail me if you are interested in this painting.

Another Different Strokes Challenge

6 x 8 oil on linen panel
Beach Family

Here is yet another one of Karin Jurick's Different Strokes Challenge paintings. I really enjoyed this one, because I love the beach and I have never painted a beach scene before. I may try some others after I take my annual trip to Orange Beach this summer. Go to Karin's blog and check out all the other paintings!

Farm Landscape

11 x 14 Oil on Canvas
The Red Barn

Okay so now I am really back and I am on vacation so lots of painting time! I did this one yesterday from a photo I have had for a long time. I changed the background from mountains to trees and of course added the sheep because I love to have animals in my paintings. I hope you enjoy it! If you are interested in this painting please contact me.

Completed Landscape Painting

36 x 48 oil on canvas
In the Hollow

If you thought I fell off the face of the earth, well I almost did! Shortly after the workshop I came down with the creepy crawly crud and was sick for 2 whole weeks! I didn't get to paint at all because I felt so bad. But I am back!!! I decided to call this one done even though I could fool with it forever. But overall I am happy with it. Jim Richards was a fabulous teacher and I hope to be able to take another one of this workshops very soon. This one is going to hang in my Dining Room! Hope you enjoy it!

This is my next exciting adventure! My sweet friend Carole Foret and her twin sister Claire Keyser are having a painting workshop in Athens, AL that should be a blast! I always love Carole's events and am looking so forward to it. I would love for some of my friends to join in the fun!
