30" x 48" oil on canvas
This painting was taken from a sunset photo I snapped at the Grand Canyon a couple of years ago. Added a little interest with the "Happy Trees" as my husband called it, using a secret technique I learned from a Savannah painter. Let me know what you think.

A few weeks ago we celebrated our daughter's college graduation with a tea in our back yard given by our sweet friends/relatives, Sandra, Camilla, Whitney, Jennifer, Robye and Bree. Thanks so much for the wonderful memories! I just had to share!

From A Distance......36" x 48" Oil on Canvas
Here's a couple of new things off my easel. Couldn't stop singing "From A Distance" while I was painting this. Started out experimenting with Pointillism and sort of ended up with Impressionism. This is not exactly what I meant to do but then it never ends up being what I start out to do. Does everybody know the words to "From A Distance"? My favorite part is
"From a distance we all have enough and no one is in need. There are no guns, no wars, and no disease, no hungry mouths to feed. From a distance we are instruments marching in a common band. Singing songs of hope, singing songs of peace, they're the songs of every man. God is watching us, God is watching us, God is watching us from a distance"
....I love the Bette Midler version. Beautiful song. Says so much.
Don't ask how I came up with this next one...it's a strange bird that sort of "happened" when I was experimenting with painting tears. I was just letting things flow (melancholy week) and they developed sort of wing like things and then I decided to add the blue...I was really just trying to do an abstract for Kacey's new apartment using the colors she wanted. Does one of the "things" seem to have a face? Strange, don't know how that happened. It's called "Nature Cries" or "New Life"...can't decide. What do you think? The photo doesn't exactly capture it ...it's 24" x 48" acrylic on canvas.
Back to the drawing board....
