Silly Little painting


At least I feel it is silly now. I hope I don't when it is finished. When your not used to it, these little paintings can be tricky. This is a 5" x 5" painting I'm doing for the Cinco de Mayo Contest at the Artist Guild Gallery in Vero Beach. I'm going to keep it veiled until the contest. Can you figure out what it is? Better yet, who it is???

Growing up Brandi - my little sweety

A Million Paintings


There are so many paintings I want to do. This is the one I worked on tonight. My little sweety, Brandi. I'll post it again when I finish it. I'll see if I can download her video of her little 2 1/2 yr old life. She is so precious. When I'm finished with this painting she will sit beside "My little Hailey" Which I can't wait to bring home from the Indian River Couty Courthouse Walls. What a pleasure painting your grandchildren.

I did it. I did it!!! Frist winning. This judged show was for the Sebastian river Art Club Show participants. Although some of the winners may not be able to attend the show for various reasons I'll be there though. This is my first art show ever and I have been ready for at least two weeks.

I would like to do this kitty soon

New facebook friends


I met a person from Italy who does very nice art work and has several thousand other friends on facebook who also do art work. I met a women thru his friend list who does nice but unusuall paintings of children and friends. I'm going to do a 10" x 10" portrait of her because she has a very interesting face. She is Actually from Turkey.
I would like to do lots of little portraits (just for me) Send me a photo and I might paint it. It's not a job I'm looking for, unless you want to buy it when I'm done. I'm just looking for experience and wonderful faces to paint. Especially children. Got any? Send them to me.

Things I'm working on





I have a million things I want to paint but I can't do them all. Here are some I'm working on.

Been busy




I've been very busy getting ready for my first time ever art show next Saturday in The Sebastian River View Park with the Sebastian River Art Club. Lots of little details like extra business cards and wonderful little cards with my paintings on the front and the details of how to contact me and see my other work on the back. I made a couple of great signs for the tent. I'm co-sharing a space with Donna, a fellow club artist. She and I are looking forward to the show and want good enough weather to sit outside and paint while the show is going on. I'll have photos for sure. Let me see if I can get a couple now of my signs and cards.

Elephant Ears & Kitty


I was successful with my business cards tonight. I got a lot done. Tomorrow I'll photograph some of what I did so it can be seen how special they are.
I'm getting ready for my first time ever art show. All I ask is that the weather is good so I can paint while I show.
Attached is one of my latest paintings. it's a 16" x 20" acrylic on gallery wrap canvas. I sure did enjoy doing it. $ 700.00

A lot of painting

I'm still doing a lot of painting but don't have anything ready for the camera. Tomorrow I will though. March

New business card

I just made this new business card. I'm working on some other cards that have a picture on the glossy front and written information on the back. Only your not supposed to put anything on the back. It's a one sided card. Can't tell me that though. I just won't leave well enough alone. They are in the kitchen now with wet ink that won't dry. I'm hoping it will dry eventually. I can wait - even a few days. I sure would hate like heck to have to thro them out. Meanwhile, here is a photo of the good ones that I can use because they are printed only on one side. March 1st, 2010 Now I can't get the photo posted correctly
