SOLD - This is my first commission for a friend who had it painted as a Christmas gift for the Mayor of Round Rock. Apparently, this is his favorite longhorn on his ranch. It proved to be a fun challenge and I enjoyed the process very much.

Not Available - Since this is Valentines Day I thought it would be a perfect time to share my husband's favorite painting. I painted this about 1 1/2 years ago from a photo. It's one of my favorites because it captures my husband and our precious dogs on a Sunday morning. Brandy and my husband always shared hugs. She'd tuck her little head under his chin and he'd tell her he loved her. Little Max always gave him big kisses on the other cheek. Max had already given kisses, but Brandy was still hugging when I snapped this photo. We lost our little loves at the end of last year and it devastated us. We loved them both so much and they brought us so much fun, love and happiness - they will always be in our hearts. I'm so glad I painted them before we lost them. This little painting means so much to us.

Thanks Rebecca (at The Home Spa) for selling another one! You're the best.This is a recent painting I did from a road we traveled down every day in Provence. I loved this section because of the big trees and dappled light. There were many roads that looked like this and I never got tired of looking at them.

Available - This started out as a plein air painting on a rainy day in Salado. I hated my first attempt and wiped my painting off and started over. This is a compilation of the partial sun on a rainy day done in my studio. It's the little mermaid statue in the water at the river crossing. I had never noticed the statue before that day and decided she should be painted.

SOLD - Thank you Rebecca (at The Home Spa) for selling my painting. I waited for 20 minutes and many many photos later I got the pose I wanted of these two swans - I wanted that heart. Since they were in France - they are "french swans" (it's not a special new breed).

Not for Sale - This is an earlier painting I did of Georgia O'Keeffee's famous painting. I love her work and this one in particular. I was trying to get into her head as I carefully copied her image. I knew I could never market it, but wanted it just to enjoy myself.
