Quick post

Just wanted to post one of my newest little painting!
We came across this old house last week
while on vacation in South East PA.
She was sitting back in the woods and
would have made a great candidate for
a haunted house.
I just had to paint her, of course I took
an artist liberty and changed her fading soft gray
stucco to green.

Little Blue Bird

~Another  little painting~
"Turning a Corner" Oil on Gesso Board

Just a quick update!
Life has been so busy with work and kids!
Madison just turned 18 and I just can't believe that
Zac turns 21 on Saturday.
Where does the time go?
My job turned full time at the beginning of the year
and I still get to paint in the studio once a week!
Wayne also built me a small studio 
here in the house and I try to 
get in there when I can.

Same little Bird- Take 2

I found an old copy of Black Beauty
at the Thrift Store a few months back.
Three books for a dime provided
me with the perfect back drop
for a second attempt at the
little bird I painted for my 3 color challenge.

"South for the Winter"- Acrylic on Board
7" x 3 1/2"

I decoupaged a page from the book onto the piece of board
then lightly painted over it with a thin coat of wall paint. 
My last bird was done in oil, however I wanted
the wording to show in the background,
so I opted to keep this one tighter and use
