Painting the little Frenchie, Gwen and her chicken friends was challenging and a joy. This one was commissioned by a friend for her husband for Christmas. Gwen is such a special treasure to her owners. As I painted I wondered what Gwen must think of her new friends that have taken part ownership in her backyard. She seems to be telling them, "I still rule the roost", and even though she is sharing part of her place, she knows she is the favored one.
Hello Friends, been painting not posting this week. I did create this fat little bunny named "Bunchy" just in time for spring! So tired of the raw and bitter cold, I can't wait for warm evenings on the porch sipping my coffee in the morning.......oh take me away warm weather.
"Melody for Louise" was created especially for a little lady who lives in Clarkton. What a wonderful lady she is! I had the pleasure of working with Louise years ago when I worked at the bank. Her daughter called me and asked me to paint something special for her mother. Something that would tie in her love for bluebirds and one of her favorite songs "I Come to the Garden Alone". Look closely and you can see some of the words from that old hymn.
Here's to you Louise!
"Mosaic Sugar" is a sweet oil painting of a whimsical sassy heart surrounded by colorful mosaic-like shapes. Give your sweetheart an original oil painting for Valentine's Day....or better yet, ask your sweetheart to give me a call and I will take care of your request. It is gold framed, but can be taken out and displayed on an easel all by itself, or you can frame it yourself. This photo shows how it looks on my antique sideboard in my dining room, right near my easel where I'm painting bunny rabbits on this gloomy cold and rainy day.
"Mosaic Sugar" is a standard 5"x7" size. Happy Valentine's Day!
"Melody" is a sweet lady mermaid who plays the harp. She is the only mermaid that has musical skills, when you turn a conch shell up to your ear and listen...........shhh....you just might hear sweet symphonic music.
