"Live from Johnny Mac's" 24"x24" Acrylic

I was able to enjoy a recent afternoon at this magnificent car show where they allowed me to set up my easel and paint. What a treat to paint this old, old Ford with a sleek Corvette right behind it.

"Pixelated" (In a Fog) 8"x8" acrylic

As a challenge for "Girls Just Wanna Paint" for July, we had to use "Fog" as our subject. I considered painting natural fog, but it didn't interest me so much, then I thought of the Washington, D.C. neighborhood of Foggy Bottom, but still not so much. Then, I decided to take it more to the figurative level.

Catching Some Rays

My entry to Girls Just Wanna Paint challenge for June, "Catching Some Rays" for this month's theme, "Bathing Beauties." I love seeing all the people at the beach, and all the gear we bring.

Beauty and The Beasts 9"x12"

There were 4 legged guests in attendance at my nephew's wedding to his bride on 12/13/14. I thought they'd be a good subject for this month's "Girls Just Wanna Paint" challenge which is "Bride."

A Place To Call Home 8"x8"

"Favorite Object" was this month's "Girls Just Wanna Paint" challenge, and I was so stumped. At a time in life when I am trying to rid myself of objects and lead a simpler life, it occurred to me that perhaps I should paint the object of my deep appreciation, the place I call "home."

Flowers and Elphie

I recently received some beautiful flowers at work and Elphie decided to make them more beautiful by sitting next to them.

"Window Seat" Acrylic 8"x10"


I often sit in traffic at the red light on this corner on Massachusetts Avenue and I see the white cat sitting in the window above Estelle's restaurant. Since our theme for the "Girls Just Wanna Paint" challenge for this month was "Comfort," I thought that this cat is the picture of comfort, in her window seat, queen of all she surveys.
