More Cowbell... *SOLD*

After many requests for paintings of cows lately, I decided to post my most recent which is now for sale at the Montgomery Museum Gift Shop.
Every time someone asks me about cow paintings, my husband and I laugh about the Will Ferrell skit on Saturday Night Live..."More cowbell!"....for those of you who have seen it! You can find it on YouTube if you want to take a look!
This one is titled "Oreo" and lives on Wallahatchee Road in Pike Road, Alabama.

Iron Bowl Day!! *SOLD*

This is a great big day around here!! My family is all about Bama - but I have to pull for my alma mater - Auburn! It makes it more fun to have a little football tension in the air, anyway!! This painting was done a few years ago - obviously after a victory on the Plains and Toomer's Corner was appropriately embellished!

Counting My Blessings *SOLD*

A summertime painting entitled "Curb Market Color", but I wanted to post it now because it embodies so much of what I'm thankful for! The beauty and bounty of the earth, food on our table, jobs, our country, the seasons. Our curb market is so full of memories for me, too - trips with my grandparents, my mother, my sisters - such happy times!

"Warm Glow" Takes a Trip! *SOLD*

Should've mentioned this on the blog earlier in the month, but I was excited that this painting ended up in Coastal Living magazine's Idea House in Sunset Harbor, NC! You can see it (with the aid of a magnifying glass!) on page 8 of the November issue! It's on the end table, behind a plant...even so, I'm happy about it!! The title is "Warm Glow". The house was decorated by Montgomerys' Phillip Sides. Check it out on line - it's beautiful!

Golden Time

At last - cool weather & sunshine! This backlit tree was painted last fall at Tannehill in North Alabama. I can't wait until we get some fall color in the trees....what a wonderful time of year!
While I love the bright yellows & oranges of the leaves, I equally love the purple shadows against those beautiful brights!
I have my cadmiums ready...come on, leaves - I'm ready for the show!

What will they do with TWO pugs?? I can't think about that today, I'll think about that tomorrow...

Many Mansions *SOLD*

"In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you."- John 14:2

Billowy clouds most often make me think of Heaven. I painted this shortly after the death of my dear Aunt Mim last month. She has a home in one of the many mansions and that gives me great comfort ... and comfort to know that a place is prepared for me, too!

"Get Real, My Boy" *SOLD*

I love Valentines Day! It's my birthday, but I think I would love it anyway even if it weren't! Remember the way Valentine candy boxes used to be - loaded with lace and flowers - the drugstore aisles were a sea of pink and red and white fluff? I loved even the tacky ones. Here's a little reminder of a sweet Valentine simplicity - conversation hearts. Painted a few years ago, the hearts I picked at random just happened to say "Get Real, My Boy".

Cicada's Song *SOLD*

Just a note to say that this painting, "Cicada's Song", is currently on exhibit at the Alabama State Council on the Arts Gallery! The gallery is located on the first floor of the RSA/Regions Tower in downtown Montgomery and the exhibit will be open until mid-March. I hope you can stop in if you are in the area!
The painting was done of a location near Marler Road/Highway 80 in East Montgomery County. I hope it captures the feel of the late summer evening that it was and maybe you can hear the cicadas even on this cold night in January!
