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 GLASS BOWL

"Red Grapes in a Glass Bowl"
11" x 8.5"
Soft Pastel on Canson Mi-Teintes Paper

I rarely like to revisit a subject but I really enjoyed painting red grapes a years ago and I loved trying to capture a clear, glass container.  My first painting of red grapes is no longer in my inventory so I decided to create a new one for my May 1st show.

This is the next-to-last painting for that show.  I am away from home for the weekend at the state speech and debate tournament so no painting until next week.  All of my new frames have arrived so I'm nearly ready to pack and go.

It's been a wonderful art week for me.  My students did incredibly well at their last high school competition, I've sold three paintings - one right after the other and I've had two commissions for personalized watercolors.
