I started this last Friday at the Lubbock Arts Festival, and worked on it all day Friday, Saturday and half a day Sunday.  It took me all morning to finish it up. I haven't done the sides or the varnish yet. I take the photo before varnishing. We are so ready for Spring flowers, and warm weather, I thought this was a good name! It is 18x24 and is available.  $400 + Tax and S&H

Emerging
22"x30" transparent watercolor
$1100

This was my favorite painting of 2013, finishing it in the early fall... I crossed my fingers it didn't sell at my opening because I wanted to live with it a while longer. And I just found out that it was one of the 121 paintings selected from over 1700 entries for North Light's SPLASH 16 book.. Being a south Louisiana girl, the alligator is one of those creatures that we are used to seeing around the bayous. I wanted this gator to be emerging from the pigment on the paper. Painting its detail was reminiscent of my 25 year as a highway and bridge designer... drawing little roadways around the hills and valleys of its hide. Limited edition prints are available.

I got a photo of this great cowboy in Wyoming. His name is John. He dresses in this 'old-timey' style. The Cowboys I saw there wear these wonderful scarves. I loved doing this. It was such fun. I think because western art is my favorite! It is torn paper collage.
I am available for workshops. have another coming up in May.

Buho de Oro
30"x22" transparent watercolor
SOLD

I used this image for the invitation of my solo exhibit held in November.  It sold at the opening, along with the Koi Pond painting I posted last week.  Owls are always a fascination, and for me, particularly the barn owl.  Its "heart shaped" face and beautiful golden, spotted feathers are a sight... but not to be fooled by the beauty of this cunning raptor. This model posed for me when I visited a falconer and his birds at a Renaissance Festival. Though the painting is sold, limted edition giclee prints are available.

For more information, send me a message.
This is one of those paintings from my imagination, the "Out of my Head" series. My mother always had a veggie garden, and I remember digging turnips out of the ground when I was a child. I had a lot of fun painting this in 2009. This painting has been stored in my archives and is as good as new, actually better than new since the paint has had time to cure and can now be varnished to add that high sheen, if desired.

Fashion Statement

This Painting 'Fashion Statement' is a couple of years old, but is one of my favorites.  It is 20x24 framed. I did a floral underpainting first, then placed the flamingos where I wanted them. Then I had to glaze some of it back. I did 3 of these. All different. The other two have never been framed.
Ken named this. When I showed it to him, and told him I thought the name should be tickled pink, and he said it looks like a fashion statement to me! so that is what I named it.
It is available. Right now I have it hanging in our living room with other animal paintings I have done.

Koi Pond 11
26"x40" watercolor
SOLD

I painted this oversized watercolor on 260lb paper and it quickly became one of my favorites.  The size alone was impressive... small by canvas painter's standards, but large for those of us who work on paper.  I began this with the loose background wash, painted quick with both transparent and opaque watercolor. Then I "lifted" out the shapes of the koi and goldfish... placing them where the painting seemed to want them. Though the original is sold, I do have limited edition giclee prints available.
