Just Ducky


Just Ducky
7"x11" acrylics on gessoed paper

You can learn a lot from ducks. Look at him! So cool, calm and collected looking. But, if you look below the surface his little webbed feet are paddling like crazy. A great example of the saying, "Never let them see you sweat."

Loving Brothers


Loving Brothers
Acrylics on 8"x6"x1 1/2" wood cradle

I painted this for a "Twitter" friend. We are doing a little barter. In exchange for this painting of her grandsons, she is knitting an outfit for my grandson who is due mid April. I so enjoyed doing this!

Below is what my friend knitted for my grandson. She is so talented!

Creek Study


Creek Study
Acrylics on 5"x7" Gessoed Paper

Just a quick study done of a creek I happened on during a walk. Landscapes are my favorite subjects to paint. You can be loose and free with strokes and coloring.
