Irises 11x14

My very favorite painting place this year, has been my own back  yard.  This was painted a couple of weeks ago as the irises were beginning to bloom and the red bud tree had lost its red flowers.  I am painting for a big show at the state capitol right now.  It will feature favorite places in and around Oklahoma.  If you would like to bid on this painting or enter my ebay gallery, click here  If you would like to visit my blog, click here

Beautiful Iris 8x10 oil

I recently received notice that my proposal for a one woman show at the state capital was accepted and with that acceptance came a wonderful grant to help me prepare for the show.  I plan to do a series of Oklahoma landscapes and where better to start but my own back yard.  I have done several garden sketches and some finished paintings of some of the flowers growing there.  This is one of my favorites.  It is on auction ( sorry the price isn't reduced as much as I like to do on my ebay site but this one is scheduled for the capital show so I don't feel as free to reduce the price on it till after the show.... of course if it sells before the show.... well, it will be one less thing to haul to Oklahoma City :-)  To visit my auction on ebay click here  I have a lot of other paintings that have been greatly reduced for the auction.  Check back daily as new ones move out of the ebay gallery and on to the auction daily.

SOLD! Tornado 12 x12 oil on canvas

To bid on this piece and enter my ebay gallery click here

This painting is 12x12 oil on canvas.  There was a storm approaching as we left our favorite swimming hole and headed for Tulsa.  As we were driving we got more worried as we spotted an ominous wall cloud to our left.  Figuring we could outrun it we slowed down long enough for me to snap a photo or two and then we high tailed it outa' there.  I have this on auction for only 3 days as it is scheduled to go to the invitational gallery at Tulsa's Mayfest next week.  If it sells, I still have some time to paint for Mayfest :-)
