Spring Posies

"Spring Posies" 6 x 6

I have been painting lots of larger works for home shows and fundraisers.  Now that the paintings have been delivered I am back to figuring out painting on a small canvas all over again.  Inspired by a spring that is slowly unfolding here in southern Idaho I decided I needed to paint a cheery pink painting.  I hope you enjoy it!

Call Me

"Call Me"  6 x 6

I've been really busy the last few months but since most of my paintings were commissions or work for specific projects I have not posted many pictures.  Today my deadlines have been met, the artwork has been shipped and I am back to creating whatever I feel like doing.  Today it is old phones.  I'm not even sure my kids know how to work one of these. Isn't it amazing how fast technology has changed in the last 30 years?

More Busses!

"Combi Parade - Aqua Combi"  24 x 24 & "Combi Parade - Grey Combi" 24 x 24

Here are the second and third VW bus paintings that make up the triptych.  This grouping is part of a group of my paintings that were recently selected to be part of the staging for the Weathervane home show in April in Twin Falls.  Since we haven't had a sunny day in awhile it took these photos outside and the light was so blue.  Even using photoshop the images still don't quite have the same warmth as the Red Combi.  In reality they all look the same.

"Combi Parade - Red Combi" 24 x 24

While I have been painting a lot lately I have not posted much. Here is the first painting in a series of VW busses in various colors. I tried something different with my background making it lighter and more transparent. The series will be going to the Full Moon Gallery in Twin Falls at the end of the month. Super fun to do.

Terry's Bus

8 x 10 oil on canvas

I recently had my artwork displayed the Full Moon Gallery in Twin Falls, Idaho.  During that time I met Terry.  She has a 1970 VW bus that she bought new and is still in all original condition.  My husband and son recently restored a 1974 VW bus so we chatted about all things VW and she asked me to paint a picture of her bus for her.  Here it is, a bit bright on my screen but less so in real life.  If you see her tooling around Twin Falls, honk and wave!

Well Loved

12 x 12 oil on gessoboard

The holiday season is upon us and it seems like everyday just gets more busy than the last.  I have been diligently working on my commission and have finished the first painting of two.  I have titled it "Well Loved."  it makes me smile that someone likes their Converse as much as I do.

Saturday December 3rd 11-3pm is The Art of the Gift at Elevation 486 in Twin Falls. I will have a table set up with my small daily paintings, cards, desk calendars and gift bags for sale so come on out and give or get some local art for Christmas.

This week is Operation Christmas Child shoebox collection week so I have been busy at church packing up the boxes that have come in.  The last day for collection is Monday November 21st from 8:30 to 10am at First Christian Praise Chapel in Rupert.  If you have packed boxes make sure to get them to me by then!

24 x 24 oil on 7/8" cotton canvas

I was challenged to take a small painting and transition it to a larger canvas. Once again I chose my favorite shoes, the red converse. I painted it during the election which inspired the red white and blue color scheme.
