Lucky, a wonderful Wheaton Terrier belonging to an author Friend of mine. Lucky visits schools and churches giving Lucky Lessons on good touching and kind and thought words. Teaching respect to young people. Lucky Lessons are the books and his owner took a photo of Him with glasses, too cute for me not to paint and give to his owner. Enjoy

Bathtub with an Attitude

Bathtub with an Attitude  oil on panel 8x10
An overnight stay at a Friends home, dinner and a walk in the  lakeside yard all got me to this delightful feast for the eye, what a great re-purposing of an old bathtub.... gives it a whole new attitude.

Lovely reflections on a  morning walk just down the block. My favorite time of day. Used some fun colors in this.

Wild Cucumbers

Wild Cucumbers 8 x 10 oil on panel
Haven't posted for awhile busy playing with paint and teaching. I felt a desire to paint in a classical style and do some still life with the focus on the drama of light.
