1865….

mosaic house numbersEvery year, I never know what to get my Dad for Christmas.  On a visit last May, I noticed that he had taken down his house numbers when he replaced his vinyl siding the year before.  I asked him if he was going to put his numbers back up.  He thought probably he wouldn’t, since they weren’t very pretty and he didn’t want to punch a bunch of holes in his brand new siding.  I made a mental note of it and came up with  a mosaic house number plaque for him.  He might still have to drill a hole or two, but at least it’s pretty enough to warrant doing so.

I was going through some of my older pieces and found this one.  I remember that I didn’t care for it when I finished it in 2010, but I must have liked it well enough to keep it.  More often than not, I’ll pitch a ‘reject’ if it didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to.   I’m glad I didn’t.   It deserves a frame!

This piece has been on my easel for awhile.  It’s one of those pieces that I could paint on every day….all day…..if I’d let myself.   It’s finally finished!  Yay!

Alright.  I’ve been neglecting my blog.  For some reason, posting images is more difficult than it should be.  Not sure if I can blame my age, memory or lack of practice.  Most likely it is a combination of all three. … Continue reading

Puzzzled

The ‘word of the month’ for our critique group’s ongoing character studies is ‘Puzzled.’  This poor cow is having a bad day.  First she spilled her milk, now she’s missing more than a few puzzled pieces!  Hope she doesn’t have another tantrum.

What should her name be?

Tantrum, Part 2

Tantrum....'Having a Cow'

Tantrum….’Having a Cow’

Sometimes I get a better idea after I’ve already finished of a piece of artwork!  This was the case for ‘Tantrum.’   The little girl pulling her hair out (Posted Nov 20, 2012 ) was most likely how I felt on that particular day.  But, a better visual would be a cow having a tantrum, thus:

‘Tantrum, part 2…Having a Cow.’
