I think this old rooster has been locked out of the hen house! I went to the Foley Feed Store where the owner Wyman Franks aka Festus Muleskinner, raises all kinds of exotic chickens, birds and other farm animals. I had been meaning to stop there for quiet some time as they have fresh eggs and sell baby chicks too. It was fun visiting and I will be back for more eggs and more photos. They are practically in downtown Foley, Alabama on 65 a block from highway 98.
This impressionistic oil painting of a little ballerina was done a while back, but I don't think it was ever posted on my blog. I went to a ballet dress rehearsal and took tons of photos of adorable little dancers.
This is one of the type commissions I like painting. loose and colorful.
I have been painting since the first grade when teacher made me draw the Santa Claus on the blackboard for Christmas. (Of course that was pre ACLU). I am from Holly Springs, Mississppi originally, a small town in Northeastern Mississippi, where I had my first real art lessons from the local artist. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Southern Mississippi. After college I lived, painted and studied in New Orleans.
Currently I live in beautiful Gulf Shores, Alabama with my husband Ed.
I love painting figures, still lifes, beach scenes, or just about anything else that gives me the opportunity to play with color and shapes.
My goal in painting is to have fun creating a visual feast for you to enjoy, all to the glory of God.
If you see a painting you would like to buy you can purchase the painting directly from me.
