Ruby's Slippers

I don't claim to be a tango dancer but I have a lot of fun trying to become one.  This painting was inspired by the tango and by the receipt of the dancing shoes once owned by my husband's Grandma Ruby.... Thus the title, Ruby's Slippers... To bid on this painting click here

Vintage Green Vase

This fall I went to a garage sale and came across this great little green vase.  I have been wanting to paint it for a while and thought I would set up a still life with it and some of the porcelain dolls I picked up as well.  The dolls scared the students... ( not scared like Steven King scared, scared like " I can't do this... , " scared.  Anyways I took the great dolls out and painted out a tea cup that was in it for a while and all in all came up with a very pleasing study!    This painting is 20x16 on stretched canvas.

SOLD! Girl Wearing a Red Coat Walking in Snowy Field

We recently attempted to beat the storm out of Arkansas.  We set out on I 40 only to find that the roads were already icing over, the delta fields were covered in a thin layer of snow.  Fortunately when one is in a car that is driven very slowly, you can take non blurry photos out the window.  When I got home I used the photos to create some interesting new paintings.  This is one of the paintings I just completed.  It is on auction through ebay this week.

Prairie Walk 16x20 oil

It is Christmas vacation and I get to paint what I want to paint ( not that I don't already do that :-) but since I am not teaching, I like to play.  This painting is a combo of several photos and my imagination.  I really like how it turned out.  I put it on ebay for sale this morning.  If I leave it out over the holidays it may get some more work ( as often is the case ) but perhaps not.
If you would like to purchase or make an offer, see the other things I have been working on over the holiday, click here to visit my ebay gallery.
