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.

"Red Grapes in a Clear Bowl"

Michael is on the road at the District Tournament which is the doorway for his speech students to get to the National Forensic Speech Tournament so I have a rare, quiet evening to finish this pastel painting.  I took a bunch of red grapes, draped them in a clear, glass bowl and went to work.

There were a few challenges here and I couldn't resist using a wide variety of colors.  I also had problems resisting eating my subject.  I think this will be a nice addition to the OHMS collection.

This is another piece on Canson MiTienes paper and measures 9.5" x 8.5"
