Just a little sunshine for you - this painting was offered for sale yesterday at the annual bazaar held by St. John's Episcopal church here in Montgomery. I love sunflowers and the way the blooms follow the sun's light - bowing their heads as the sun goes down.

Here's another member of the family - my precious niece, Katherine. We call her Kat. I have such a large family that I could be busy forever painting their portraits! This one I did as a monochrome exercise. It was harder than I thought it would be, but a lot of fun and I like the way it turned out!

Well, it's been a long time since my first post! I hope to do better! I appreciate the comment on my first post and it is exciting to know that people have found it!
Today I am posting a portrait I worked on in the late summer. It's of my sister, BJ, and her daughter, Rebecca - two of the sweetest people in the world. In these days of gloom and doom news reports, I can always count on my sweet Rebecca to make me smile.

At last - I have set up a blog to post artwork! I would rather paint than just about anything and I can't wait to share paintings on my blog.
I admire so many artists who blog - Karen Jurick, Linda Blondheim, Carole Marine and Duane Keiser are some of my favorites. They are inspirations to me!
This painting is a recent one done of a couple of cows I saw. I loved the way the reflected light hit underneath their necks. The little one seems to say "What?", so that's what I named it!Thanks for looking at my posts!
