Watering cans - an ongoing series of paintings. I'll probably be painting a water can as I draw my last breath. I never tire of painting them. This can has a coat of brick red paint, starting to peel in a few spots. The rudbeckia's are from my sister's yard. Seems like I've heard them called antique sunflowers. I'll be at my sister's all day tomorrow, watching her two sons while she takes her daughter to UVA hospital in the Charlottesville area. Her daughter must visit her doctor at UVA 2-3 times a year to stay on top of her condition. Maybe my sister will let me talk about this some day on my blog. For now if you want to own this little piece (4 1/2"x 4 1/2") or give it to your best friend, then CLICK HERE for purchase information. Thanks for stopping to read.

This is a chunky little painting. It measures 4" x 5" x 1-1/2", so it will stand up all by itself. It's gallery wrapped. I started with goldleaf on the canvas and used a comb type thing to make the swirls so the goldleaf would show through. The closeup shows the dragonfly. If you want to make this yours or need a special gift for someone on your list, just CLICK HERE for ebay! Hope you having a beautiful evening.

Here is a happy, summer painting for you. Remember the last time you were at the ocean's edge? That wonderful breeze and all the seaside sounds! The feel of the sand and the sound of the waves? It's been way too long since I saw and heard the ocean. Hoping I get to visit the ocean in Florida sometime in Dec. this year. If you want to own this little reminder (it's 10"x8")just CLICK HERE for info on Ebay. Thanks for stopping in.

Well - Hello World! It feels like I've been gone a really long time but it's only been a little over a week. My computer bit the dust again! The hard drive had to be replaced. Anyway, a bit about this little 5"x7" painting. I liked the vintage looking coats hanging on the knobs. The light or the ambieance (sp?) or the coziness of all the antique furniture is what made me want to paint it. It feels like home to me. CLICK HERE and you will be sent to ebay if you would like to purchase. Thanks for stopping in.
