Pam's Garden -Sold

Oil on Canvas
10" x 8"
It’s funny how the more you look at some paintings, the more fond you become of them.
I have said for a while I wanted to loosen up a bit to add more life to my paintings. This is one I did of my neighbor working in her yard, after participating in several of the DSFDF challenges. I have to thank Karin for her blog, because I would say this is pretty loose.

What fun this one was to paint!!

The Old Home Place -- Sold

"The Old Home Place"
36" x 18"
Oil On Canvas

Some paintings are just so much fun to paint that you hate to finish them. I really enjoy working on paintings that take me somewhere, ones that bring back fond childhood memories about people and places. Not just the house it’s self but the way the light falls through the tress and hit’s the side of the house, almost inviting you to step up on the porch and sit a while.

To Dance or not to Dance -- Sold

" The Depot"
48" x 24"
Oil on Canvas

Its funny how looking back can sometimes make you move forward. I have been so busy painting, learning, teaching and showing my art that sometimes you forget to breathe.

This is not one of my most recent paintings, it’s been on loan to a friend and I just got it back a few weeks ago. I had it with me at the show in Greenville; I was a bit surprised at the attention it received.

I painted this as an attempt to begin thinking outside the box. Something to push me to the next step as a painter. Well guess what, it worked. Having it in front of me again has reminded me to “Step it up”

So wish me luck, there is never any telling where this feeling can take you!

Watching Over You - Sold

“Watching Over You”
Oil on Canvas
11” x 14”

Well the last show for a bit is coming up this weekend! I am headed to Artisphere in Greenville, SC. I have been told it’s a great show but it’s my first time, so heres to crossing my fingers!!! If the quality of work is any indication it should be wonderful, I am really looking forward to checking out some of these artist. They have a link to most of them on their webpage and several are very impressive!

This is one of my latest paintings and I will say it was a blast to paint! I had already began it before I saw Karin’s Challenge on DSFDF but it makes me sorry I did not have time to participate in the last one!
