Sylvie the "Got Milk" Cat

This tuxedo cat has been our companion for about 9 years. Her mustache is the first thing that catches most people's eye. Although it looks like milk, she never drinks it. She just lays by the pool and sleeps away the day - and night - and the next day....what a life!

Silver Bowl - Yellow Apples

I like painting metallic objects, like this silver bowl. They reflect colors and light from many directions and are a challenge to paint convincingly. These yellow apples were sitting on my kitchen counter just begging to be painted in the summer sunshine.

Apples of Gold in Silver Bowl

Sold (on eBay March 2011)
Golden apples in a silver bowl reminds me of the Scripture: "A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver (Prov. 25:11). I need to always be mindful of the words Ispeak and make sure they bring blessing and not curses.

White Cup & Rose

I like white things in paintings. They take on colors from their surroundings. Sort of like people, huh? We get "colored" by things and people around us - hopefully the colors we take on are beautiful.

Girl in a Red Dress

This is a quick study I did yesterday. I like the loose sketchy feel of it - I want my work to become more painterly. Tell me what you think.

Ready For Spring

Here is lovely Nicole again, ready for Spring. With an inch of snow on the ground this morning, I'm ready too! I can't wait to open the windows again. She did a great job modeling for this. I spent far more time on this painting than I planned, but I didn't want to paint her poorly. What do you think? How did I do? 

Red Onion & Green Pot

Red onions are among the favorite things artists love to paint. This one contrast well with the green of the pot.
