Winter's Magic

11" by 14" original oil on canvas


This piece was December's demonstration for my oil group.  It was a nice subject to paint for the holidays.   Last night, I watched White Christmas which has been my tradition since I was a child. Something so magical when they pulled back the stage doors and it was snowing!  I still hope for
   snow on Christmas!  Have a fabulous week!

Cabbage Leek And Turnips

14" by 18" original oil on canvas


This piece was a demonstration for my oil class.  It was a lot of fun but for some reason we all ended up with paint all over ourselves!  It can get intense when you are working on a larger size painting and trying to complete it all in one session.  Very exciting too!  Hope your holiday season has been fun and as stress free as possible!  Thanks so much for taking time out to visit!

I have wanted to paint this group of birds for quite some time.  Not sure what makes the time right but yesterday was it and I had so much fun with them.  I like their personalities and how the light brings attention to their grouping.  Hope you have a great weekend!

Barney Steps Out Of The Shadows!

11" by 14" original oil on canvas

I painted Barney in a class as a demo.  I think he has a bit of a Halloween thing going sneaking out of the shadows like he is.  He was fun to paint.  The class enjoyed painting pigs and like always. they each come out looking a little different and unique.  Hope your day is a great one!  Thanks for following me on my thirty day challenge.  I will still be painting often and will try to keep painting some new subjects like more people.  If you have any pictures you would like to see me paint, write to me at
