New Deliveries at Renaissance Gallery

This painting, "Keeping the Peas", is one of several just delivered to Renaissance Gallery in Northport, Alabama. The Renaissance Gallery is a lovely gallery in a very charming town just outside of Tuscaloosa. If you're in the area, please stop by as you do your Christmas shopping! The town will not disappoint - you'll find several great shops in addition to this gallery and great places to eat!
Okay - I talked my mother, my husband's aunt, and a friend of theirs into posing for me last summer. They shelled peas, drank tea, and ate watermelon while I got lots of painting reference photos! Thanks, ladies!! :)

Autumn in the Alabama

Is it my imagination or are we getting extra beautiful autumn color here in Alabama??! It's been perfect! On top of that, a cotton farming friend invited me to paint with her just before the cotton was harvested and it was wonderful! So - here's one that I painted after the plein air get-together. I absolutely love cotton...makes me think of that line from "Stars Fell On Alabama"..."we kissed in a field of white"...I sure do live in a great place!
