Well. . . . . Hello Spring!
Here's my oil painting in 1 week ( actually not a whole week )
It's 8 x 10 unframed. As usual, I'll look at it for a while till I decide if it's finished! I do see one thing to do differently. I'll try to post that "fix" later.

Have a great weekend. . . . . . .

Next week I'll have a new one, but after that I'll be gone for a while to see my sweet grandkids in TX!

Weekly Paintings

I'm going to post a painting a week starting with "Geranium Dance"

Next week I'll have a start to finish oil painting! Wow, what have I gotten myself into this time?

Our West Coast FL beaches are just the best in the state! Bright white sand with lots and lots of shells. I just have to go everyday - no really it's somekind of law they have here! Can't go around breakin the law, and besides I don't look good in orange stripes!
This is our screened porch that's just outside our master bedroom. It's a great place to sit and enjoy the Florida winter!
My home is in a Historic neighborhood in St Petersburg FL. Besides being an artist, I love decorating my old home. So between fighting hurricanes and termites I'm searching for the perfect stuff to fill up my old house.

Starting next week I'll be doing a painting/drawing per week. I hope I can keep this up until my next art show, plus I'm squeezing in a few trips to TX to see my grandbabies. We'll just have to see how this goes!

Popcorn anyone?

Yes, we really do put circus tents on houses in Florida! I think I see a giraffe behind that tree - no really I do!

I took this picture yesterday and I'm pretty sure it's going to be my next painting. Now all I have to do is decide on watercolor or oil. What do you think?

Lisa Marie

I am standing on the seashore
A sailboat slowly spreads her white sails
In the morning breeze
And glides across a blue ocean.

She is laughter and strength
And I stand and watch until
All I see is a speck
Like a cloud
Just where the sea and sky
Meet and touch

Someone at my side cries, "There she goes."
Gone from my sight, that's all
For she is still the same voice
She was before this journey began.

Now there are other eyes
Watching her coming
And other voices shout, "Here she comes."
