Polka Dot Piggy Bank - SOLD

Read below to see the beginning of this happening:  So NOW the person who has this on hold was sent the link so she can buy the same EXACT piggy bank to give to her sweet Grand Baby for Christmas.  Starting her, no doubt, on a wonderful path of learning how to save!  I just know she's going to be filling that up fast...  Isn't that just the cutest thing!

This little cutey pie would look so sweet with a 4" wide frame in that luscious green (garden tea?) color in a new baby or child's room.  Plus green is non-gender which I just now realized.  Didn't do that on purpose, but a good point to make when one doesn't know ahead of time.  Great shower gift!  And maybe add a real bank with it.  Bet no one else at the shower has a gift like this one...

$59.00 + shipping/handling fee of $8.00, 6 x 6, oil on panel.

Open Studio 2010 - A few shots of event

Melissa.  Friend, assistant, awesome nurse.  I'm one of her biggest fans.  She's the best!!!  It was a great day.  Looking forward to more of the same tomorrow...  ps- honest, we both wore jeans and black shirt, but it wasn't planned.  Great minds think alike.

Having a good time with friends...  Leslie's in the middle, a great person if ever there was, but I am prejudiced.  Another Barbara to the left, I finally met another Barbara and then, no kidding, two more as well.

Serious contemplation...  aren't they cute! And yes, they did decide on a favorite painting.

 My husband Tim made Melissa and I lunch and wow, was it ever amazing, tasty, full of flavor and wine as well...  oh yeah, this is good stuff.

Susan, dear Susan (in red).  A friend and art collector.  A docent for the Petroglyph tours via our local museum, an owner of horses and other four legged creatures.  Blessed to know her.


This is Julie, she's been trying to hide, but it's a no go...  She brought the homemade from-scratch Grandma apple spice cake made from her own pears (great substitute) to surprise me.  This picture is a bit red and bleached out, but don't care.  I think I ate the whole thing! Not really, people were pushing me out of the way to get to it!  Yipes and double yipes!!!

French Confections - SOLD

This delicate scene of French Confections is rendered on a linen panel.  The sweet ecru box with the colorful candies were brought back as a small souvenir from the Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris, France.  A barely visible roman numeral V painted on the front of the tiny box as a sweet reminder of fond memories.

Red Soles - SOLD

Shoes, ya gotta love 'em...  I've painted shoes before, sets of heels, sandals, slippers, etc, but I do love the simple black classic pump.

$79.00 + shipping/handling fee of $8.00, 6 x 6, oil on linen panel.

Low Tide - SOLD

This is the painting on exhibit for our local Open Studio Tour.  The attendance last night at the reception was really great...  "Low Tide", an 8 x 8 x 1.5, oil on canvas with painted sides sold last night for $275.00.  Artwork commissions/sales at the exhibit/tour is another way for artists to get communities involved, maybe teach a child a bit or at the least expose them to some art and how much fun it is to go to the right side of the brain.  Not to mention enjoying all of the wonderful people checking out the artist's studios and work.

Lots of art purchases were made, visits with friends and other artists were long overdue.  All in all 'a great evening'.  The tour itself is on the 23rd and 24th so I will be trying to snag pictures to post like I did last year.  All I have to do is remember, lol...

Market Place

A woman in a market place selling her fare...  Gently gathering and tying off leaves to sell with other items leaning on the wall.  I love the colors and the quiet, peaceful feel of this piece.

$79.00 + shipping/handling fee of $9.00, 6 x 6, oil on linen panel.  Buy it on Etsy!

Skybear - Commission

This is Skybear!  It's her Dad's bike of course, but who knows, maybe someday she'll have a bike of her own.  I feel certain that she's always going to  ride her own ride'...

On Hold!
