Wild Intent

14" x 10"
Oil on Canvas

This was one of the new paintings I finished up to take to the boat show with me. It’s always wonderful when someone happens along that has a story that they associate with one of my paintings. This woman had just seen her first bobcat in the wild and was thrilled to see the painting.
This was a blast to paint, I truly love painting wildlife!

The Strand Theater

40" x 30"

Oil on Canvas

On January 10th, I had the honor of attending the Grand Opening VIP Cocktail Party & Dinner at the Strand Theater in Marietta, Georgia where I was recognized for my donation of this painting to the Friends of the Strand. I have to say, the real honor is that my painting is now hanging in the main lobby of the theater.

Dinner Time

10 x 8"
Oil on Linen Panel

I just love Cows! They have some strange calming effect that makes them so much fun to paint!
My family went over to Berry College one evening and caught the light at that magic time of day! My Mom and I got quite a few wonderful shots of cows, deer and geese not to mention the unbelievable landscapes there.

This painting and several others are available at Frameworks Gallery

Janet Whitehead Portrait Challenge

This is my painting of Janet Whitehead done as part of the Different Strokes challenge. Wow! What a learning experience. Not only in the painting itself but there is nothing like the commitment of sending a photo of your work for someone else to post to make you scrutinize your editing of the shot. Only after sending the photo to Karin did I realize the color in the shot was off from the painting. One of many things I have learned by participating in the DSFDF blog.

Thank you Karin for the many lessons all of us will undoubtedly learn from your labors. The opportunity to compare the efforts of so many individuals is a privilege indeed.
