About Me

My photo
Guymon, Oklahoma, United States
I am blessed to live where my grandfather homesteaded, to have three beautiful daughters who are my best friends, to have six delightful grandchildren who live nearby, to be married to my sweetheart of 35 years and to thrill to the special magic of creating my own works of art. I'll never cease to thrill to witnessing new ideas and images come to life from the point of a pencil or splash of a brush. I am blessed.

Finally Finished

"Sunflowers on Red"

This is the last piece being created for the Sunflower Festival this Saturday. I had a very detailed painting of my great grandfather's homestead outside of El Reno, Oklahoma started but decided I needed to work on something a little less time consuming to finish out my frames. This one went quickly since it comes from a study I did for the main street banner. I just used a different palette for the bright red background. It is larger than most of the other pieces so the scan isn't as sharp and I didn't want to spend oodles of time puzzling multiple scans together.

There are other pieces I haven't posted and I think the scans don't look as vivid as the finished work so I hope folks who view all of this newwork up - close and personal - will be pleased enough to want to take something home.
