Gloria Perkins class in Sharpsburg, GA on November 4th!

This painting has gold leaf where the light color is. (Looks better in person than in this picture!)
 Plus it is HUGE!  It is 18 X 24!!!  After it is framed it will be beautiful in someones living room!

Animal Coaster Set that I have started. I'll show you each one of them as I finish them.

This is a West Highland Terrier laying on a pillow.  Isn't he so cute?

This clipboard is one I will use to hold my picture up so I can see how to paint.

Don't know if you can see it  but it is dedicated "In memory of Dottie Ree Chestnut" ,my mother.  Because she has never seen my paintings.  She would have been so proud of every one of them.  Plus she loved yellow roses.  Love you Mama!

I GOT IT! I got this Kodak stuff to my blog at last! LILY OF THE VALLEY

I started this picture about 5 or 6 weeks ago.  But I could not get this Kodak Gallery to copy it to my blog for some reason.  So ........FINALLY... ti works!  This small picture took me about 4 weeks to complete.  But it is so beautiful!  Hope you like it as much ass I do?

Heart of Georgia Painters

Last Saturday September 12, 2009 the Heart of Georgia Painters met at the Salvation Army building in Warner Robins, Ga.  Everyone painted cards except me and Paulette Marshal.  Paulette painted beautiful Santa ornaments.  Wish you could have seen them!  They were gorgeous!!!
And I painted a wooden lap desk inspired by Sandy McTier.  I will be working on the basket some more.  But I plan to keep this one for my painting supplies.  Check it out!

We have a new edition to our family! Chi-Chi!!!! Our new Chihuahua!

This is Jerry's 6 week old chihuahua that he bought on Sept. 12, 2009.  But Alice gets to take care of it.  I don't know yet if this is going to work out.  She is name after enchilades( I think that's how you spell it.)  But the name on the chi-chi's bottle confirmed the name.
Enjoy the pictures anyway.  Have a blessed day!

Tuesday Night Painting-- and look what happened!

This is a Crafty Wave project of Donna Dewberry's! All I done was read the directions and POOF! It's done! Her projects are easy and anyone can do them. Just give it a try.
This is a tray like Donna's but I added some roses to the scene! You know I can't live without my ROSES! Wouldn't it be lovely to have some tea served on this tray?

Busy! Busy! Busy! But I had a wonderful time painting!

This was my first time to try watercolor painting! We painted the Koi fish on Saturday and the butterfly on Sunday. It was a challenge to say the least! So what do you think?

The Blue Tit is a samll bird! But is a beautiful bird when painted!

I painted tis little fellow on Saturday with the Georgia Peach Painters.

The Blue Tit is a widespread European Chickadee, one of the most common and best-loved garden birds of England. They are noted for their confident and fearless nature, and willingly use nest boxes and come to feeders. Highly intelligent, the Blue Tits have been used in scientific studies, demonstrating that they can complete a precise and complex sequence of more than 25 tasks to get the reward--a sunflower seed--at the end!

Begonia paint project for June 24th.

Yesterday I painted this begonia on canvas as a learning piece. I went to a class at Hobby Lobby and met with Pennie Sunderman for her to teach me about oil painting. I didn't finish it in class but I came home and stayed up til 12 midnight to finish this little cutie! It's on a thick 11 X 14 canvas with a beige background of Linen. Will Sell. $55.00 or best offer.

This is a mural on the wall over my work area in my painting room.

I just had to have the clock to remind me to take a break from work.

Look! Look! Look! See Alice. See what Alice made!

This was my clay project for Tuesday, June 24th. I just love it! It now hangs in my new sewing room. The walls in my new sewing room is a butter-color. So this will go perfect.

Nola Brantley Library Demo 6-17-09

This is the Nola Brantley Library Meeting Room in Warner Robins, GA. I taught the students the One Stroke method of painting. I also showed some of the projects with Studio clay.
The students were very attentive. They ranged in age from 5 to 14.

My sister, Grace helped me with loading and unloading the artwork. She also took the pictures for me. It's good to have a sister that believes in what you are doing.

This is me teaching the students to paint.

This last picture was taken before class. Everyone seem to enjoy the week of "Be Creative" at the library.
Thank you to all who participated.
