Covid 19 relief fund sale

Ok, so I am going to kill several birds with one stone here. I am going to post a painting a day as I make the brave attempt to clean my studio. I am going to slash the price well below retail. If you purchase the painting I am not requiring it, but any extra cash you want to donate will be appreciated. I am then going to split any sales with the Red Dirt Relief Fund and the Tulsa Restaurant Employee Relief Fund. This could be fun! If you need shipping please include $20 more, otherwise arrange with me for pick up or delivery. If anyone has a brilliant idea on how to work this better, let me know but I am thinking the first person to say, " I want to buy this painting," gets it. They can pay for it through pay pal ...sending money to friends and family so that Paypal doesn't take a cut. Some of these paintings will be sketches and some will be demos and some will be finished paintings. some were done years ago and some, last month. Help me clear the studio while helping Tulsans in need.. Please pass along to your pals.... unless you want to be the first to purchase ;-) I will be adding a couple of paintings each day.

Tornado 16x20 oil on stretched canvas.. $130
Nude 8x10 oil on stretched canvas.... $85
Sunflowers 8x10 oil on stretched canvas $125

SOLD! Pandemic 2020

This is how I am dealing with things.  The good news is that I actually like my tornado dreams.  They always involve a lot of drama of course, but always end with me finding a great hiding place to ride out the storm.  I am usually a heroine who saves others along with myself.  Let's hope this whole thing turns out the same.  Stay safe out there folks.

6x6 oil painting on canvas.  This was done earlier this year when the pear tree was covered with pears.  A great excuse to hang out in the back yard.  This painting is $150 and can be purchased directly from me.  To visit my artist blog :

Creek paintings

I think my favorite way to paint is small and quick and onsite.  These were all painted on 8x10 canvases en plein aire in Oklahoma.  The Flint River, Bird Creek, Chickasaw national Park and Spring Creek.  Actually it is often hard to let go of these as they are like someone taking your favorite photograph of your favorite day out of your photo album.  Fortunately the ones that are no longer with me have gone to good homes :-)

A day in the wild places

When it is too cold and yucky out, I sometimes take myself to the wild places by painting.  The top painting was really already finished but then I saw a few touches that could make it a better painting.  The following one is of my son, Jesse and his dog Scruff.  I took the photo at a nearby park but decided he would be better off hanging out by my favorite creek. Both of these paintings are for sale on my ebay site but you may always purchase through this site for a slight discount as we knock out the middle man.  .
