8x10 Acrylics on Sintra Panel


What attracted me to this set up was the light patterns coming through the crocheted curtain, through the leaves, through the window. So many people have left comments on my FB page that it makes them happy, too.

Cheeseburgers: So Bad, So Good

So Bad, So Good
5x7 Acrylic on Panel

When I'm on a diet, I am compelled to paint food. Doesn't taste as good, but better for me.

Red-Headed Flower Girls

Red-Headed Flower Girls
6x6 Acrylic on Panel

This is a reference photo from that I have always loved. 
Rosalind Amorin is the the photographer who captured such a sweet moment. 
The girls in the photo are blond, but I'm partial to red-heads.

Ruefus, the Wire Haired Dachsund

Ruefus, Head Shot
6x6 Acrylic on Panel, Commission

Ruefus, Dreaming of Oregon
9x12 Acrylic on Canvas, Commission

Ruefus was a commission for a woman who is from Oregon, now lives in Arizona and misses Oregon.  I love Doxies so this was big fun to paint. I had a smooth haired Doxie when I was growing up and painting this brought back memories of when she'd run away and we'd have to chase her all over the neighborhood, coaxing her home with hot dogs.

Roses a la Mollica

Roses a la Mollica
6x8 Acrylic on Canvas Panel

I bought a painting instruction course by Patti Mollica as I love love love her paintings and want to do more in that looser style. This was my first attempt not to pat, pat pat the paint onto the canvas but to do few strokes and leave them alone. It has a freshness, don't you think?

Summer's Over - SOLD

Summer's Over
12x12 Acrylic on Sintra Panel

When I saw this reference photo it brought up such nostalgia, even though I've never been to a place exactly like this. Art can do that sometimes. I find it peaceful to let my eyes rest on the horizon and relax, as though I'm swaying on the tire swing.

A Moment in Time - SOLD

A Moment in Time
12x12 Acrylic on Panel

Steve Lyddon is a photographer on that captures the most beautiful shots! I just fell in love with this photo and it went into my "must paint" file. I live in the country and love the drive to work because I see the cows and horses out in the beautiful Maryland countryside. But I'm too lazy to go plein air thanks to Steven Lyddon!

Pancakes for Dinner

8x8 Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped Canvas

My mom used to make pancakes for dinner sometimes. I don't know why they taste better at night. But they do.
