I loved painting the green glass of the olive oil bottle with the shiny strips on the label. Painting the colorful peppers is always fun. Would like to say that the veggies are from my organic garden put the pepper harvest was slim here this year
I have been on organic foods all year and I find the food much tastier. Also lost 35 pounds eating all I wanted. I think preservatives must make you fat (and of course all the sugar they put in processed foods).
This little painted bunting was visiting Lazy Lake RV Park in Gulf Shores, AL. last winter,
One of our guests, Carolyn, took the excellent photo that I painted this from.
It feels good to be painting again. I am warming up for the workshop I will be teaching here in Gulf Shores, September 18 and 19. This class is limited to 15 students, so don't wait to long to sign up.
The beach front condos are half the normal price in September and it is warm enough to sun and swim.
For more information about the workshop call the Gulf Coast Art Alliance at
The birds are stirring around already getting ready for the spring season. Really glad to see them as I had a couple of months where there were no birds at my feeders. An eagle was soaring around the pond today and the Canadian geese are honking a morning greeting.
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.
