"And What are You Having?"

24x36 - oil on canvas SOLD

This is a commission I did for a girl friend. She challenged me to do some wine bottles, something I've never painted. And of course she wanted it large. It took me some time, but I've finally have completed it and it's now hanging in her home. I think I'll be doing more wine related items.

"Family 4-ever"

15"x30" oil on canvas - nfs

This is a painting I did for my daughter, Megan. She loves elephants!! This painting came so quick for me. A true pleasure to paint. My signiture was different for this one because it was for her. She calls me Marmee, from a favorite movie of mine, "Little Women". They called their mother Marmee. I watch this movie mostly during the Christmas season...her memory, like elephants, didn't fail her. I hope to paint more elephants!

"Owl Be Up All Night"

11x14 oil on canvas

I painted yet another wonderful species in the owl family. Across the street from where I live is the Cleveland National Forest, so at night when I have my window open in my studio I hear the wonderful calls of these magnificent owls. The Great Horned Owl is the most commonly known owl call. I have a few more owls I'm currently working on and will post those soon. I also have many more other paintings that I'm currently working on. Yes, I love to multi-task. ALL good!!
