Pond Visits 2

This piece is one of my Pond Series Paintings. I had fun modeling the rocks and discovering the frog that is in there. These little guys add a lot of noise and action to my quiet peaceful place.

The Red Plate

This painting is done now. I added some more shapes and worked on modeling the fruit. I am happy with the abstract design and bright colors.

Dragonfly Dreams

My two dragonfly pieces are in Round Rock in a gallery called Artspace on Main Street. The reception is November 4, and I will be there. The art work is fabulous. Come on out and see. This show has been up for a few weeks, and will be coming down soon. Next I will be showing in Austin.


I must be thinking of flowers these days, as summer winds down. I will have to spend the coming winter months just dreaming of Spring plantings!

Glorious Colors

This painting is all about colors. I hope it makes you think of the soft breezes of Spring. This was a demonstration done in a class that I teach with Sue Gray, who is such an inspiration.

Not Done Yet

This is another painting that was a demonstration. Sue and I painted from the same still life. I have worked on this one since this photo was taken and it looks a little different, but the basic elements are the same. I will post the new image soon.

This painting is one that I started in a class as a demonstration. I wanted to show how to use watercolor on Bristol Board. It is very easy to work with once you get the hang of it. you can make changes and rework until you are happy. This one is not complete, but I like the mood and the attitude of the pose, so I am going to go slow as I continue to work so that I don't lose the important pieces.

ART NEWS: Ascent

ART NEWS: Ascent

Saturday, October 2, 2010

The good news today is that I won second place in the Georgetown Art Works Show, now up, around town, in Georgetown. My painting, Her Black Boots, won the second place award, which was quite a surprise because their were so many fine pieces in the show. Artists from surrounding towns and Austin are hearing about this great show and entering the competition. The works are varied and of quality. It is definitely worth a look...and also is a great way to purchase a piece of wonderful art.
The art is showing in The Georgetown Public Library, Abbey's, Franklin and Company Fine Jewelers, Cianfrani Coffee Company, and Quenan's Jeweler's. Georgetown could use an Art Center to showcase all the great art that is available in this community.
