Crying Heart

You folks are seeing some strange things in these little paintings.  I get a kick out of your comments.

Caring Heart

I had two people tell me they saw a horse head in my last post (Joyful Heart) - hint: it's on the left side and his nose is facing down.  Once you see it, you'll always see it.

This one is also painted in fluid acrylic with some ink.  I wonder what hidden form you might see in this one.

Joyful Heart

I've started a new heart series of paintings.  Don't know what really motivated me to do this but once I got started I couldn't quit.

Water Lily II

This is a little 8x8 oil on canvas board.  I have a real soft spot in my heart for Water Lilies and every now and then feel compelled to paint another one.  So there you have it!

This is an 8x8 oil on board reflecting 'just another window' you might see while visiting France.  I never get tired of their wonderful planter boxes and decorated entrances.  It's especially refreshing for me since I have a major black gardening thumb.  My latest potted herb plants just croaked - again.

Molly's Spa Day

Molly had a big spa day and I thought she was so cute she needed to have her picture on the blog.  She received another excellent report card and a big bag of treats for being so good - not to mention she smells pretty good too!

French Door

This is an oil painting I did while at Dreama's workshop in Kentucky.  I'm trying to capture the essence of the scene without too much detail and keeping my colors clean.  Like I've said before, the French and Italians like a pretty entrance full of beautiful plants to welcome each person thru their door.  Funny, I rarely ever see anyone attending their plants, they just seem to magically be there in full bloom for the viewers enjoyment.

Rooster Proud

I happen to love roosters.  They are, well, sort of cocky.  I like the way they strut their stuff.  This guy just said 'I'm proud to be me' so I painted him.

Abstract Still Life II

This abstract was painted right after the one posted below.  I think I was in the same frame of mind and had our own little conversation going.

Abstract Still Life I

I've been playing with my watercolor abstracts again.  I've just completed 2 "still life" paintings (16x20) and this is the first of the two.  This one incorporates watercolor, oil pastel and watercolor pencils.  I really enjoy painting this type of work.  I paint and the painting talks back to me.  It's sort of like a conversation in color.
