About Me

My photo
Guymon, Oklahoma, United States
I am blessed to live where my grandfather homesteaded, to have three beautiful daughters who are my best friends, to have six delightful grandchildren who live nearby, to be married to my sweetheart of 35 years and to thrill to the special magic of creating my own works of art. I'll never cease to thrill to witnessing new ideas and images come to life from the point of a pencil or splash of a brush. I am blessed.

NOW THAT'S MORE LIKE IT

I found a bunch of crisp, red radishes and knew they needed to be captured on a turquoise background.  It's been a wonderful day painting up these little guys.  I especially love their long tails.
The mix of complimentary colors help to make this piece pop.

I wish my computer and camera could better capture the true, rich colors I combined.  I've played a lot with Photoshop to try to fix them but it just doesn't compare to seeing them in real life.
Theses babies are done and ready to mat and frame for The Trading Post Cafe.  I already have some purple plums drawn out and plan to paint them on a hot pink background next.  There are some fabulous blackberries waiting behind them if I don't eat them first.
