ORIGINAL PAINTING LANDSCAPE RIVER EDGE WITH COWS AND REDBUDS

 
Hey Friends,  This was painted from photos and sketches I took last summer while watching my
GranBabes play along the bank of the Roanoke River in Greenhill Park. 
There is a small herd of cows, I see from time to time, across the way.  I"ve always wanted to cross the river and get closer photos.
I can't seem to spot a place on the other bank to get out of the water.  It all looks too overgrown and snakey.
 
This is painted on gessoed mat board so it should be matted and under glass.
 
Hope you are having a great weekend.
Thanks for stopping by.

ORIGINAL ACRYLIC PAINTING - "WOOD STORKS'

 
Hey Friends,  Again the weather here is sunny and nice.  A bit chillier than yesterday.
 
This painting of nesting wood storks was done a couple years ago from photos taken while in Florida visiting my uncle.
This nest was really big and messy and a bit stinky.  But what the heck you can't be picturesque and smell like a gardenia every day.
 
This is for auction in EBAY but the link doesn't engage until tonight, about 9pm.
 
Thanks for stopping by

ORIGINAL PAINTING-COLLAGE "FUZZY PINK MEMORIES"

 
Hey Dear Friends,  I'm a happy girl !  The earth is waking up !!  Here in the mountains of SW Virginia there are signs of spring everywhere.   I thought winter had become a permanent condition.  But now we can go outside without layers and layers of warm clothe, etc.  The Va. Blue Bells are about an inch out of the ground.  That's the first thing I look for.  You can't count on daffodils because they will bloom in the middle of a snowstorm.
 
So I'm posting this warm, sunny tropical painting of a Flamingo, just to help brighten your mood too.
 
She is available in my Etsy Store - CLICK HERE.
 
Get out there and wander !

ORIGINAL PAINTING STILL LIFE CONTEMPORARY FLORAL

 
Hey Friends,  When I find work that's been packed away or maybe it comes back from gallery, it doesn't always look like something I would typically do.  I enjoy experimenting and trying new techniques so some doesn't fit my NORMAL mode.
 
I always return to my place of contentment.  Mostly Mother Nature.
 
This is for auction on Ebay now.  CLICK HERE.  Could add that spark of color excitement to your room or office.
 
More coming soon.

ORIGINAL PAINTING ALONG RT. 311, the BLUE JAY HOTEL

 
Hey Friends,  New one on Ebay - CLICK HERE.  This hotel, the Blue Jay has been right where it is for as long as I can remember.  In fact, if I remember correctly, not long after we moved up here to Virginia, my Mom worked there for a short bit.   I don't think she liked it much and did not stay long.
 
And I have a photo of that Donut Cloud !  It was there, for real !
 
Thanks for stopping in.
