Titmouse with Holly and Berries Cigar Box

This reminds me of an old mans cigar box.  The base is stained with maple with a burgundy trim.  Then the bird and holly with berries was added for a vintage touch.  All it needs now is the varnish to preserve it.

More painting Projects!

Check out this little bird!

Almost a new Year and I haven't been blogging!

Monday night art class got me going on this picture!

So I stayed up til 2am Tuesday morning and finished this!

Everything is coming up ROSES!

This past weekend I painted this rose.  Maybe one day I will frame it.

Getting ready for Christmas!

This is a clothespin that I painted to hold my Christmas cards.  One side of the clothespin is for birthdays too.  It's 12 inches long or tall.  Because you can lay it down or stand it up.  How neat is that?

Georgia National Fair 2010!!!

100_1845This is the picture I entered at the Georgia National Fair in Perry, GA.  It will be displayed throughout the entire fair at the Miller-Murphy building with all the other paintings.  Some of the painters from my painting classes have also entered their artwork.  It will be nice to see all the other paintings along with mine.
This painting is a one that was taught by Clemmie Allen, president of Georgia Peach Painters.  It is an orignal painting by Sherry C. Nelson.
Hope all of you come out and enjoy the fair!

Vermont here we come!!!

My husband and I have been wanting to go to Vermont for years to see the leaves change and some of those beautiful old covered bridges.  So here we come!  We are leaving tomorrow morning!  I can hardly wait!

Saturday afternoon goofing off!

I was just goofing off and painted this Saturday afternoon.  My inspiration for this painting came from my dear teacher, Sandy McTier. But I could never perfect it like her.

This is a clock I bought  making it look like a sunflower for my art studio.  The petals are all hand made of clay by me.  My teacher, Sandy McTier had inspired me to make this from one she had made.Another peep at the valance in my art studio.  I got only part of the room done with the valances.  I went rushing back to the store where I bought them about 4 or 5 weeks ago to get 5 more(because they didn't look full enough) but they didn't have anymore.  One of the girls was kind enough to take my number and is suppose to get someone to check at the warehouse for more.  I'm praying til I hear from her!!!!

Boy, Am I tired! Been working on my studio today!

This is the valance that I chose to go to the top of the window.

At last!!! Blinds for the windows!
