A Dry Spell

I've had this painting, of just the background, hanging in my studio since the Calvin deRuyter workshop 5 years ago.  always intended to add some buildings or something to it.  The Rural show is coming up at the Red Door Gallery so Wah La!... used white gouache to help out the watercolors i took directly from the tube..  what fun to remodel stuff o mine....originally it was posted on Sept 2, 2013
   i don't believe anyone lives there anymore, a scenario seen more and more in the rural areas..   

Glass Art Surprise

I painted this weird one about 8 years ago..  it had the large blown glass thingy that i had taken a photo of in Oregon @ a glass blowing studio...  Since it is Acrylic, i can do about anything to it .. it took me 2 days to change it.. i added the street scene, glass flowers and the Toad.. drawn from one of my glass frogs, that i collected, after i got tired of collecting shoes and nuns..
  i adore the couple, for some reason..  didn't change them..  nothing like painting a blonde perm... 
Painting, before i messes around with it, was posted Nov 29, 2013.

"Tweet over here, Tweet over there"

Oh goodness, call me a bird brain...  i had fun doing this.. the only true color is on the cardinal, i think..  also love the Tweeting aspect of it..   painted in acrylic which gave me the option to smear color all over the place..

Bike Ride for Two

Going along with the Free Stuff..  i painted this image over another painting that had a lot of texture.. so it was a bumpy ride,  get it??? bumpy ride...  it is acrylic.. love the floating window idea.

Really? Flowers? Butterfly?

Spent a whole day on this image using photos i had taken back when we had flowers in our garden and yard, in other words, when my husband was here..  It looks better in this photo than it does in reality .. What more can i say?????

We Are Sitting Ducks

Painted this yesterday using a photo i took sometime on one of our trips..  Not that enthused about painting birds, but liked their stances..  i googled ducks to see what kind they were and WOW there are some colorful ducks out there.. these are wood ducks..so:
" what would a wood duck do if a wood duck would duck?"

Retired? From What?

Once again, i enjoyed sketching these folks from a photo of mine..  yes, that is us, Carl and Judi.. at a gathering at the lake probably 20 years ago..  Can't remember who the standing guy was but he fills the space nicely..
