A lot of people think that when they see a painting on the wall that the artist had a specific idea of how it should look in the end and that is how it turned out. For most of us, it is a journey. We have a very vague idea and we jump in and see where it leads. I did this painting last year as a class project. My class wanted to do a landscape and a portrait and so we combined the two. I really liked the landscape and I liked the pretty face on my portrait but wasn't pleased with the rest of her and didn't like the way the two fit together. It took me a year to give it a second look and so here is where we are today....
Welcome to my blog where I post recent photos of my work and journal about my life as an artist. I live and work in Tulsa Oklahoma. It is from my early life in the mountains that I developed a love of the natural world which now includes vast prairies and endless skies.

To Garden.... or To Paint.... or Both!
This week I am doing a lot of both. To start off with the harvest of lots of dandelion and redbud blossoms a few weeks ago is going to pay off in another few weeks ( my fingers are crossed) with some tasty dandelion wine. I tasted before I bottled it and it was pretty darned good so hopefully nothing goes wrong with the rest of the process.

a short painting demo
I had forgotten about this until someone commented on it today. A pretty good little demo if I do say so myself. It is me painting one little white cup. It takes about 5-7 minutes or so.

Portraits and Sky Oil Paintings
I thought I would revisit a few paintings that were used as an excuse to paint both a portrait and a wild and interesting sky. We have wonderful sunsets, dramatic storms and beautiful clouds out here in the flat lands and I like to include them when ever I can. The middle painting is open for bidding on Ebay today. The others have already been sold.

Playing in the Creek
This is a painting of my great nieces playing on Summer vacation at one of our favorite haunts.
