mystery moon


 March's theme at Gallery4 is going to be "mystery" .. i immediately thought of my infamous barn painting.  So I added eyes to the original moon, (not good)  i made them winking  (not good), i added a patch over one eye (not good), so i just kept making moon larger and larger and added a couple of ghosts and spooked  up the windows a little..  I so love this painting.

Spool Samples.... Sold by Matt..




 Found these old wooden spools o thread in Mom's sewing machine.  Piled them up on my painting table and painted what i saw..  It was cool but quite pale so added the blue drape and it helped.   kinda fun.  

Title is probably inappropriate.   tee hee..
   
Son, Matt, posted a photo of my Gallery4 display and has sold 2 and had 2 more inquires about my art.  He seems to be my agent.. whee..

Come and Sit #1 and Kitchen Art..



 These paintings came home to roost.. ha.  I Painted this "Come and Sit" in 1993. ( I covered the date with white acrylic paint and that makes it a recent painting) Right??..  ha.  

I love how much color I used even in the 90's..   Was it trenting then, i wonder??  

Beaching


 This painting was a result of a workshop i took a long time ago and i really loved.  My daughter-in-law regifted back to me.  They moved to a new home here in ND and have limited wall space.   so there ya go.

Carrie Bradshaw & Mr. Big


 A friend clued me in on an upcoming show to be held at Bonanzaville in West Fargo, this summer.  They provided the 11"x14"canvas  and hinted at a farm-ish theme ..  so here ya' go.  It was really fun to paint. 

 I have painted these goats b/4, kinda, and am always afraid they will look like dogs.  I painted the canvas red then used limited palette (again).

I changed the title..  i can do that..   at the show it will be titled..  "Goats and the City"  maybe.

The Sunday Paper




 My cousin, Marla Rose, sent a photo of her grandfather, in a very 40's setting.  I absolutely loved the tea kettle, the phone, the dog dish, the tie and "jumper" he is wearing.  What's not to draw and paint ... This photo is a little pale . ..   People Matter.
