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.

2010 SUNFLOWER ART & WINE FESTIVAL BANNER


THE FIRST DAY

The Wild Horse Gallery is once again inviting local artists to create streetlight banners for mainstreet to promote the upcoming Sunflower Festival.  This year's banners are about 2/3 the size of last years.  Here is my first day of working on my banner.  I started by painting the area brown and then arranged some yellow cone flowers around a butterfly.  I am thinking of creating a black butterfly which is the official, Oklahoma state butterfly.  It's been a long time since I've had time to work on my easel and it feels so good to back at it.

I was wondering when you were going to post something new! I can't wait to see how it turns out! ps: I didn't know we had a state butterfly... ha.
