Studying for the Bar Series......Liquor Paintings.....oil paintings

 Studying for the Bar I...........24x24
Studying for the Bar........12x24
It is my opinion that there are conflicts in many homes re: the subject of the MAN CAVE.  He wants it to reflect his interests....she wants it to still be a tasteful reflection of the rest of their home.  How do you elevate the man cave/bar area from frat house to adult retreat?  An oil painting of course!!!!

Check Please!.....black and white check series....Oil paintings




These are from my new series "Check Please!".  They are each 12x12 on gallery wrap thick canvas. They are done in oil paints with a collage technique that creates the checked motif and cool extra texture.  They can be purchased separately or as a set.   I absolutely LOVE the direction that this series is headed!  More to come after grandbaby is here and spring festival (Double Decker) in Oxford is over.

Moon Shadows Series.....Oil Painting

Moon with Tree Silhouette...12x12....oil on canvas(sold)
(I do have more paint, so if you like this contact me about doing something similar, but different, made just for you!)
The second in my Moon Shadow series.  I took a little poetic license with this one.  But I love the effect and since I am an artist I can do strange things.  Just ask my kids.

Moon Shadows Series....Oil Paintings

24x24......Moon Over the Lake....Oil On Canvas

This painting is part of a series called Moon Shadows that was inspired by a full moon that I had the pleasure to view on a couple of different evenings recently.  I have always enjoyed sunsets, but I am finding that a full moon rising is just a beautiful and possibly a little mysterious.  This painting has lots of yummy texture and colors that show up in different sorts of light.  Though it does not hold a candle to God's version, I am pretty proud of my humble efforts.

Retro Shasta Camper......Oil Painting

...Sold  (I do have more paint, so if you like this, contact me about doing something similar, but different, made just for you!)
This is a large (30x30) painting of a vintage Shasta camper.  My sister-in-law's family has one of these in a kitsch-y color of pink.  But I loved so many things about this view that I did the orange one for my painting.  I love the canopy and lights, I love the old-timey metal lawn chairs, and the orange against the blue sky.  I chose to add the vintage aluminum colorful tumblers on the table.  It just called for them!

New Home for this Landscape!.......Oil Painting

I love it when I get to see my work in it's forever home.  I even got to see this one in person.  It looks like it was made to go there.  But then, that's what a commission is, isn't it?  It was, indeed, actually MADE to go right there!

St. Louis Cathedral...................Oil Painting

sold  
(I do have more paint, so if you like this contact me about doing something similar, but different, made just for you!)
Ok.  I am getting there.  This is so much closer to how I really want to paint than the first painting I did of the cathedral in New Orleans.  I am going to humble myself and post a small photo of the first painting.  I think you will see the difference.

Ok, I guess in all honesty this one isn't as bad as I remembered, but I still like the mood of the more recent one.  The top one is for sale, but the bottom one is long gone to a forever home

Snappy Snapper......................Red Snapper oil painting

I based this painting on a photo I took of some red snapper that we caught the second year we rented a house on Dauphin Island.  Our fish didn't look exactly like this but this guy is much "snappier"!

Tree at Houmas House.......oil painting

sold
(I do have more paint, so if you like this contact me about doing something similar, but different, made just for you!)
A dear friend's daughter (one of the best people!) got married at Houmas House in Louisiana a couple of years ago. I took this photo that day.  In light of the flooding that is happening in the Baton Rouge area right now, I post this in hopes that Houmas House is safe and dry and that all those adversely affected by the tragedy will have a speedy recovery process.
