Things are getting exciting. It's Fall now, and Santa is peeking around the corner, trying to nudge the Thanksgiving turkey out of the way. This is one of my Santa portraits.

And here is a purple still life painting...I used to get daisies once a month, and painted them often. I think the flowers here look very much alive.

The Southwest is in My Blood

I have visited the Southwest about ten times, give or take a couple. When I am there, the time goes by quickly. When I am away from there, the rocks, hills, and mesas call to me. This painting is an imaginary landscape with a partially imaginary rock wall, accented by a tower. The old ruins are made of rock.

Still Life Paintings with Pears

Still life with fruit can be a beautiful form of expression. There is the shine, the texture, and the surroundings. In each of these pieces, there are golden pears. In one scene, an apple takes center stage.

Plein Air of Palo Duro Canyon, Near Amarillo Texas

Photography Prints

This painting is acrylic on stretched canvas. Clicking on the picture will take you to the prints. We were staying in the Lighthouse cabin at Palo Duro Canyon in the Texas Panhandle, and I wanted to paint on location! The wind was strong, but I was determined. I did manage to paint most of the scene en plein air, adding touch-ups later.

It was a great experience. On the first night, we heard thunder, rain, and wind. I opened the door and peered out. There was no rain, no thunder, and no lightning, but much wind, bounding down the canyon and whipping around the rock cabin. I went back to sleep, to the sound of pounding--wind!

On the second day, I found a small snake in the living area of the cabin. It had been hiding under my shoe. We managed to see him safely out of the building.

Finn Hotel of Pleasant Hill, Louisiana is Popular

Sell Art Online This old hotel once stood by the railroad tracks in Pleasant Hill, Louisiana. Those old enough remember it as an old building in disrepair. But it was once a beautiful hotel with livery stables, waiting to shelter weary travelers. I used an old photo as a reference, deliberately putting emphasis on the building itself.
