Our beloved Mabel (our beagle) was hit by a car last night. The injuries were so bad, we had to put her to sleep.

She was such a good girl. We were so blessed to have her. Mabel, you are going to be so missed. Thank you for the time we had with you.

Been A While!

Been very busy these days and really have not the time to create much these days. With the little time I do have, I decided not to spend it on the painting and all the clean up. Brought out the old colored pencils (from COLLEGE!) and thought it would be fun to try again. Really loved doing these with paint and thought Mr. Waddles would be fun to do again.

(Colored pencil on 8x10 Bristol Paper)

Sorry images are so fuzzy...

Amherst Junior Women's Club Auction Time!

Can't believe it's been a year since the last piece I painted for the auction! This time around I selected tables and had fun returning to my graphic style.

They like the pieces titled, so these are called Night and Day and are 20"L x 18"W x 16 1/2"H.

Periwinkle Blue table.

Happy Sunflower Yellow.

The brown in the center appears more blotchy than it really is, in real life. I believe it's because of the semi-gloss finish and the glare of the flash on the camera. Even the light and shadows on the flowers and leaves aren't captured well. AUCTIONED; SOLD!

Sour Bowl in Oils

In the photo repro, I can't seem to capture the painting's true colors well. The lemons are much more yellow and the whites brighter. Oh well.....

It was another fun painting which I originally created in acrylics and revisited in oils.

14x11 oil on professionally stretched canvas. (available as soon as a better photo is taken of painting.) - SOLD!

Grapes In Crystal Bowl

Such a popular acrylic painting it was only natural to try it again, in oils!
