Spring Creek, oil and sunblock on canvas

I tried to get a group together to go to the creek with me and ended up with just my husband and me ( he is that cute figure at the edge of the water )  We had all the makings of a relaxing afternoon; books to read, a fresh canvas, paints and mineral spirits.  I ended up knocking the spirits over and found that sunblock lotion does a pretty dang good job as a medium and brush cleaner:-)  This is a little 8x10 sketch that I did that day.  I will have it in my ebay gallery.  I have a ton of paintings on auction this week.  Feel free to check them out.  click here to go to my ebay gallery

Summer's End

I just finished this painting with my adult class.  I was teaching glazing and layering techniques to them.  I put her in the osage prairie in Oklahoma where I live.  She looked like summer to me and so I decided to give her a background that matched her hair which around these parts is a nice mix of the last greens mixed with mature ochre/orange grasses.  If you would like to see this painting or

SOLD Avacado

I just finished teaching a workshop at the Gilcrease Museum and in the process, demonstrated techniques that I use to paint my little 6x6 daily kitchen series paintings. It was a great way to teach students the process of oil painting that they can use to create larger still lifes or use it to paint more one object studies. They all enjoyed the fact that they would be taking home at least one finished oil painting that day. Many completed 3 of them. Anyways I just put this on ebay with a very low starting bid of $29 with no reserve. In my ebay gallery I price these at a buy it now price of $99 ea.

Red Apple 6x6 oil on canvas

This is one of several paintings that i completed this weekend after a Saturday workshop at the Gilcrease Museum.  I taught a little class for beginning oil painters using only one or two objects.  That way they could learn the process with out being overwhelmed .  It was a beautiful spring day and we all had a lot of fun and several of the participants ended up with 2 and 3 paintings.  I am glad I brought extra stuff!  I put all of them on ebay today at a very low start price and no reserve.  Check this one out through the link below.

Osage Prairie 12x12 oil on canvas

I have never been to a casino, but I have snuck down the dirt road behind one to paint several beautiful landscapes featuring the Osage Prairie lands. This is one of them that I particularly like. In it are cedar trees that are the bane of Oklahoma farmers ( but I rather like them ) and sumac which was used by the native people for tea and flavoring. I make a great sumac lemonade. This and other paintings like it are featured in my ebay gallery. I have about 25 paintings that I have put on auction in the last couple of days.

Prairie Road

Casinos are popping up everywhere in Oklahoma. I have never been to one but I have traveled down the little dirt road right next to the casino that goes off into the wilds of Oklahoma prairie land. There are a lot of dirt roads out in the prairies that provide a way for oil companies to go check their oil pumps that are plentiful out here. I got lucky this particular day. The landscape still held on to the greens of summer but allowed the red of sumac to enter the scene and the bane of allergy sufferers, beautiful golden rod.

I am laid off from one of my very favorite jobs :-(

I got the phone call as I was walking in to go to work ( early ) . The person I answer to at the Arts and Humanities Council was very upset and very sorry but the hospital... Hillcrest ... has chosen to shut down the program due to $$ problems. I am sure they didn't give an ounce of thought to what they have and what they will miss out on. You can't buy this kind of marketing.... This is a program that costs next to nothing and yields huge benefits in patient satisfaction. It lowers depression, fear, speeds healing times and gives patients a general feeling of good will and warmth rather than cold poking, prodding, boredom, pain, worry etc that fills the rest of their days. I hear from sooooo many patients that this is the one thing they look forward to during their week at the hospital. It is one of the things that makes them inclined to recommend the hospital to others. I could go on but at least I got that off my chest. I guess I better get to my other love, painting :-)

A happy ending to this story.... I GOT MY JOB BACK! After a letter writing campaign from nurses, doctors, therapists and staff and of course, me.... I got called into the principal's office.... ok, not really the principal, the CEO's office.... just felt like going to the principals office. Anyways after a 20 minute conversation with him concerning the value of the program, I was reinstated!!! Cool huh?

SOLD! 6x6 Vineyard

My students asked me to demonstrate painting a landscape. Several wanted to know how I painted my Vineyard painting and so I demonstrated from that original, changed it up a bit and came up with this little 6x6. I stuck it on ebay today with a starting bid of $43 with no reserve. I have a ton of stuff on auction this week considering that I just got laid off from one of my very favorite jobs as facilitator for the Arts and Healing Program at Hillcrest Hospital.. Gotta ramp up painting sales to make up for the difference. Check out the auctions at
You will find a bunch of pretty little landscapes and a lot of one item kitchen paintings.

Bouguereau w an Oklahoma Twist

I teach oil painting to adults and every semester we pick a master to play around with.  Last semester it was a young girl painted by Bouguereau.  I teach demonstration style and so it is a great tool to have a photo of a beautiful face to work from when teaching the glazing process.  By trade, I paint more in the style of the post impressionists and you can probably see that influence in this painting as well.  I used the face as a jumping off point, added my new scarf, put her in an Oklahoma prairie and put a red ribbon in her hair.  I have several of these demonstration pieces in my ebay gallery and this piece is on auction this week ( soon to be over )  Check them out here...

My Shining City 8x10 oil $150

They tore out a lot of houses near my neighborhood in order to make way for the expansion of a near by university.  As luck would have it, that never happened and so we are left with beautiful grassy hills with lots of shade trees that is kept mowed by our city.  It provides me a wonderful place to paint with out having to go much further than my own back yard.  From there I once caught a beautiful glimpse of my city as billowing clouds filled the sky and the sun began to set.  This is the result.  I put it on my ebay auction this week along with a huge amount of my other paintings ( ebay had a great listing sale )  There are a lot of my daily paintings on the site along w larger works.  my ebay gallery is at  Just for kicks, I put 2 paintings in my gallery on auction for under $10 with no reserve.  find them and bid for a great bargain!

Notes for drawing the human head

Measuring the Human Head
Many artists use measuring of one form or another during the process of drawing or painting the human head.  We will begin with some of the basic measuring rules that exist in a majority of human heads.  Remember, each face is different and these rules need to be checked if you are trying to obtain a likeness
1.  The eyes are placed in the middle of the face (not to be confused with the middle of the head)
2.  The face can be divided into 3rds.  Chin to bottom of nose, nose to brow, brow to hairline.
3.  There is a distance of one eye between the eyes and enough room for almost a full eye on either side of the face from the outside edge of your eyes.
4.  If you dropped a line straight down from the inside corner of the eye, you would run into the outside edge of the nose.
5.  If you dropped a line straight down from the middle of the pupil, you would run into the outside edge of the lip.
6.  The hair on top and side of the face has bulk.  If you are drawing a portrait of a person with hair you will add at least the distance of one eye to the top and both sides of the face.
7.  You should draw the head life size or smaller as slightly larger than life may seem monstrous to the viewer.
8.  Life size of human face is aprox. The same size as the span of the human hand.

The Drawing Process

1.  Measure the span of your hand and put a mark at the top (forehead) and the bottom (chin)
2.  Divide the span into 3rds and mark the thirds
3.  Look at your model.  Are her brows at 1/3rd?  Is her nose at 1/3rd?  Adjust the mark to fit the model.
4.  Measure your model’s eye
5.  See how many times the model’s eye measurement fits into the space from the chin to the forehead. (Let’s say it is 6 times)
6.  Find a measurement that will go between your forehead and chin marks 6 times.  This is the size that the eye will be on your drawing.  Make a note of it on a straight piece of scrap paper.  You will use this measurement to measure everything on your drawing.  If your model is a photograph you will also mark on this paper the actual size of the eye from the photo.  (write the word photo next to one of the marks and drawing next to the other)  Working from life you will use the tip of your paintbrush and fingernail to mark the distance of the eye, always holding your arm straight without bending the elbow when measuring the actual model. 
7.  Using your eye measuring stick, mark the distance in eyes from the chin to the forehead.
8. Let’s say that you notice that your model’s eye is located 5 ½ eyes from the chin.  Count 5 ½ eyes up from the chin and place the mark for your first eye.  You know how big to make this eye as you have it on your measuring paper.  Now mark the other side of the first eye. 
9.  You are on your way.  You can now see where to put the 2nd eye by seeing how many eyes fit between your model’s two eyes.  You can see how far out from the eye does the side of the hair begin, how far out does the hair go?  How wide is the nose? How far up do I put the brow?
10.  You can also employ some of the tricks I talked about above such as checking to see if your model’s lips are directly under the pupil or a little less or more.  Does their nose span the distance between their eyes? 
11.  The trickiest thing is to not get the two marks on your measuring stick mixed up.  You will use “photo” measurement to only measure on the photo and “drawing” to only measure on the drawing.

Tips on Painting a Still Life from my Videos and Book

Notes for a Still Life Workshop

Setting up a Still Life.1. Put objects together that might normally be seen together (or not)
2. Keep it balanced
a. Remember that cast shadows and color intensity are part of the balancing act.
b. Use a variety of objects (large, small, short, tall etc)
c. Think about what colors might look good together. Opposites in the color wheel are an easy and sure bet. Opposites work well to form a uniform composition, for example, orange may be used to grey your blue objects when you want to create a shadow side and blue may be used to create shadow on orange.

Abstract Design
1. Begin with a viewfinder or create one with your hands.
a. Lightly sketch abstract shapes and lines. Use a little paint and lots of turp as you should expect to erase as you refine your composition. (Using a clean brush and turp)
2. Give a little thought to your focal point.
a. Decide what to leave in, move around or take out.
b. Avoid putting your focal point in the middle.
a. A focal point is a place where one or more of the following elements exist: 1. The most detailed or interesting object. 2. The lightest light next to the darkest dark 3. Side by side opposites. ( blue/orange red/green violet/yellow)
c. Allow objects to leave the painting area in at least 3 places. Make good use of the painting surface. (Don’t put all the stuff in the middle of your canvas with nothing on the edges)
Your beginning idea in abstract form may look something like this.

Firm up The Drawing
1. Make sure containers are symmetrical
2. Check the ellipse on containers. Top ellipse should be similar to bottom
3. Pay special attention to your focal point. Draw it really well.
4. No need to draw each pedal on flowers. Leave that area vacant.

Add Color1. Block in all local colors first (the main color you see when you look at the object. This is usually a medium value and painted as a solid mass like if you were coloring in a coloring book. The only thing not painted solidly are groupings of flowers and leaves. Lay those in transparently with soft edges. Firm them up in the last stage.

2. Add darks, then lights and then highlights (in this order) You have already painted in the medium values in the block in stage and they may or may not need further work. You may have to repaint the medium values when you are trying to create a transition area between the dark/meium or light/medium.
a. Ask yourself “ Where is the lightest light and darkest dark. Compare all other values to them.
b. Squint a lot when comparing but keep your eyes open when applying paint.
c. Use the biggest brush you can for the size of object you are painting.
d. Make your brush strokes interesting, going up, down across, diagonal using the sides of the brush rather then the point unless working on detailed areas.
3. Pay attention to where edges disappear (where one dark value meets another or medium value meets medium or light meets light.)

Applying thick paint is the last stage to be
used in the lightest areas only. Brush is
almost flat and parallel to the surface of the canvas

Cool Route 66 T Shirts designed by yours truely

Once upon a time my mom, then a spry 23 year old, traveled from NY to California along that great highway, Route 66. She stopped in the desert to take a picture of a cacti that looked like it was kicking up his leg. She had her pal take a shot of her being kicked. That is her, doing the hand stand. Very cute! I have sizes sm, med, lg in Black and extra large women's in Pink and and teens large in Pink.( that one would work as a women's small as well )

They all have, what I believe are called cap sleeves, kind of 1/2 sleeve except for the teens shirt. They are all a cotton,spandex mix with just the right amount of stretch and softness. They are also longer than your typical t shirt.

Please excuse my lousy picture taking. The caption on the T shirt reads I'm still gettin' my kicks! It is   quite readable in real life:-) If you would like to own one please click here to go to my etsy store.

Coffee Cup Series

I am so thankful for the daily painter group. Because of them I have been having such fun doing these small paintings. I have a series of irises, peaches, cakes, pears, coffee cups.... the list goes on. What fun! Anyways these little paintings can be purchased directly through me $80 ea or go to my etsy store, or my ebay store where you can also see some of my larger pieces and some really cool route 66 T shirts that I just designed.
