Every now and then I pull out an old painting that needs some freshening up. I took out a couple of other elements of this painting that were some papers underneath the book and just reworked and left one of the papers I added another layer of paint to the painting with the billowing clouds. I thought the landscape beneath them was a little bit too dull. This painting is all about the clouds above, for sure but I needed a little bit of sprucing up below as well. Both of these paintings are on auction on my eBay gallery but I would welcome any offers through this site.
This is a painting I did after looking for inspiration on the Internet. One of my favorite painters is the American artist, Dan Gearhart‘s. I first saw his work at the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa Oklahoma years ago and admired his use of color and his beautiful brushstrokes. Sometimes the best way to learned someone’s technique is to use a painting of theirs and closely observe their techniques. It may not be quite as easy for those who haven’t painted before but this keeps me from having to travel long distances and pay a lot of money for lessons with the masters. What I ended up with is my own version of this painting. Just a note of caution you should not sell these pieces if they are after a living artist andThey should always be marked with the words after, in this case, Dan Gerhertz, and then your own name, or copy of..,,..and then your name
This was a commissioned painting of my friend Larry's home. He asked me to include himself, his dog and if I could squeeze his cat into one of the flower pots he would be happy. This is what I ended up with... thanks to my husband who posed on the front steps for me.

My Covid gallery for this month is the YWCA in Tulsa Oklahoma. The new director at the Y asked me if I could fill his walls with color and I told him yes! It’s a perfect place to hang. Lots of great light and of course lots of walls. If you’re in Tulsa stop by. It’ll be up for the month of February and into March. When you get there just tell them you’re there To view the artwork as it is a members only and Covid precautions kind of place right now. It’s at 18th and Lewis in Tulsa
