Paint Out in Medina

This is from a paint out with the Texas Paint Slingers last fall. It was on a ranch near Medina, Texas. Much thanks to Susan Tracy for allowing us to come out and paint her corner of heaven. 6"x8", original, oil on panel SOLD

Big Stuff

This painting will also be in the upcoming ASBA show being held at Cactus Jack's in Gruene, Texas. If there is a more elegant breed of cattle than the Brahman, I don't know what it is! I love these gorgeous animals!

Plein Air at Warbler Woods


This was painted at Warbler Woods, just outside of San Antonio. What a peaceful and beautiful wild bird sanctuary! I must confess that I have now been bitten by the bird watching bug. So many interests, so little time!!!

Plein Air at Live Oak City Park Lake

Several of the Texas Paint Slingers went to Live Oak City Park last week. There was a threat of rain but it did not keep us away. We've been needing rain so badly I think we would have happily painted while dancing in it!
It was overcast, making the light flat but, the air was cool. It was so nice getting back outside after our long, hot summer!

Oil Portrait

I painted this portrait of my husband in pastels in April. Here it is again in oils. This painting looks much more like him. He is very pleased so that makes me even happier. He was so patient when I asked him to pose for a photo shoot. This was my favorite of the day.

Fundraiser for Carol Marine

As you all probably know by now, Texas is in the worst drought since the 50's and is experiencing the worst fires ever on record. I wanted to wait until Carol Marine posted an update herself, as rumors have a way if running rampant. Sadly, her post today verified that she and David lost their home in the Bastrop fire, which is still zero percent contained. I am posting a link that further explains what all has happened, a video is included.
Please click here, Fundraiser for Carol and David Marine, if you would like to help them get back on their feet.
