Happy Halloweenie

I painted this handsome guy today for friends, in memory of their longtime Dachshund baby, Duke. Hope it brings back many happy memories for them. Happy Halloweenie, Duke!

I’ve been awed the last few weeks watching this rogue little squash plant persistently trying to make fruit. I go out early most mornings just to catch a glimpse of the beautiful yellow flowers that are at their peak before the sun’s rays cause them to wilt and shrivel. This is not a plant that …

Christmas Ornaments

I know it seems a little early, but I’m trying to get a head start on holiday painting. I cut these 3″ x 5″ ornaments from 1/8″ plywood and painted simple little Christmas trees on them. A short piece of jute twine, for hanging, finished them off. Pretty sure I’ll be painting lots of these …
