Oklahoma Tornado

This is an original oil painting on stretched 11x14 canvas. 

One of my favorite subjects is the ever changing, massive, Oklahoma Sky.  I have the best tornado dreams.  Maybe because I have been in spittin' distance from 3 of them and lived to tell the tale.  Well this one was a little further away but still.....
We saw this coming home from a day at the creek.  We pulled over just long enough to snap a couple of photos and then we hightailed it out of there.
This painting just came home from gracing the Governor's Gallery at the Oklahoma State Capital.
The full price for the painting is $300 and can be purchased in my ebay gallery for that price if there are no other bids.  There is no reserve on the auction :-)To Bid

SOLD! Pallet Knife Experiment

I love painting the Oklahoma skies.  On this painting I wanted to experiment with the use of a pallet knife, which was used on the sunlit wheat fields in the foreground.  I listed this on ebay this morning for a bid ( with no reserve ) for only $49.

SOLD! Cowgirls 16x20 oil on canvas

 Original  Oil Painting by Margaret Aycock.  

This is an original oil painting on stretched 16x20 canvas.  I live in Oklahoma and I have grown to love the west.  I decided to do a little still life that might center around a female for a change.  I imagined a young girl who loves the great outdoors, horses and the rodeo.... and perhaps a cowboy :-)  Just for a little whimsey, I included my husband's old cowboy and Indian plastic figures.

A walk in the Osage

Yesterday was magic.  The weather was as close to perfect as it could be and I felt a need to get out into nature.  Since my husband, Scott, is also a painter now, we both decided to take our painting supplies and head down the road to a parcel of land that we have access to.  As luck would have it, we brought most of the supplies but realized we left our brushes back at home.  As we walked for hours we talked about all the beauty we might have missed, had we plunked our selves down in front of one of these beautiful scenes.  Instead we got tons of exercise, explored new paths, saw 9 turkeys and countless deer, gathered wild, red berried branches from holly bushes to bring home to grace our table.  Who knows though... some of these photos will probably become paintings as we are kind of on a roll with Oklahoma landscape paintings.

Just for fun... between tenants

We usually have a renter in our basement apartment but our next renter isn't moving in until November.  A friend down the street has listings on air b&b.  I thought we would try it.  If you are in our neck of the woods, we have the welcome mat out.
