Laid Back

This original oil painting is done on linen and is a 5x7 inch portrait of a dog.  Not sure what kind this is, but he was just so relaxed with that laid back ear...had to paint him.  Met him on the way to Bald Head Island on vacation.  He just was so cute when the sun hit his flopped up ear.  If you are interested in this painting please just email me at

Carolinas Got Art! PIECE CHOSEN!

I am thrilled to announce my acceptance into Carolinas Got Art juried exhibition at Atherton Mill in Charlotte NC.  This is a large show that was first started in the 70's.  CAROLINAS GOT ART EXHIBITION

Artists who have entered this type event know the stress as you are judged on your artwork prior to entry and then those chosen are again judged for top prizes.  The exhibition will begin October 1 for the entire month and I am looking forward to seeing all the beautiful work.  There were approximately 1800 entries this year with 181 chosen so you can see why I am excited.

The chosen piece is Baby Time which is at the top of my blog.  It is a 16 x 20 inch still life of baby items including an antique toy duck.

Football Time!

This original oil painting is only 8 x 8 inches square.  With football season starting, it is time for all the cheerleaders to get into high gear.  This little cheerleader was just too cute in her red and white outfit.

This painting will be for sale at my web site for children's rooms.  The link is to the right.  It is still wet so will be ready for an easel or a frame in about a week to ten days.

Mud Puddle - A Painting with Texture - For Sale- Contact artist

This is an original oil painting on 9 x 12 inch linen canvas.  The painting is one that has textural strokes visible with the use of my palette knife.

The colors are Cinnabar Green, Ultramarine Blue, Yellow Ochre, Transparent Yellow, and a new one called Tuscan Red by Cennini.  The new one is a handmade paint I am trying out.  I think it may be a good choice for skin tones.

The subject is a toddler in a mud puddle.  What toddler can resist it?

Madame Tea Party - No longer available

There are likely those of you who know the famous dolls that are often collected.  I was no exception.  I bought these two collectable dolls for my daughter, Alison,  when she was very young and found these two in an old closet and decided to paint them.  They are small so the painting of their faces was a challenge.  The tea cup is an antique that I found in a store in Hendersonville, NC.

This painting is a 9 x 12 inch original oil on linen.

The style is my usual impressionist strokes with palette knife painting.

This painting is for sale at my ETSY.
