"Left Out to Graze"

I was able to paint this old truck courtesy of photographer Bill Wilson. The truck reminds me of "Mater" from the "Cars" movie. I tried to see if I could paint it start to finish in 2 hours -- I couldn't, but I did finish it in one day. I'm picking up speed though.

"Tidepools in the Mist"

I started this last February and when I finished it, I put it in a silver frame with linen liner. I just wasn't satisfied with it until my husband suggested putting it in a darker frame. What a difference a frame makes!

"LLL Ranch, Franklin, TN"

I painted this scene along with some friends on a very hot summer day at a ranch near Franklin, TN. There were actually some cattle wading in the water to cool off, but they kept moving so I left them out. I might add them later from some of my photos. It was 97°F when I finally quit painting on the picture.

"Swapping the News"

After a recent painting trip to Courtland, AL, I finally got around to painting this scene on the town square that I photographed on a previous trip.

"Little Red Caboose Chug Chug"

The last time I painted this caboose from Courtland, AL it quickly sold, so I decided to paint it again. It also quickly sold. Maybe I should paint more trains!
