Square Books Painting - Stages Mississippi

Mom and Dad's Oxford Condo was featured this month in Stages Mississippi (p41).  There is special mention of Square Books.  Maybe I can make it big so I can quit my day job (wouldn't that be DANDY)!

Meet Charlotte

Not only is my niece stinkin cute but she is going to be my subject matter as I learn Photoshop.  How's this for inspiration? She was born August 22nd at 7 lb 2 oz and was 20 inches long.  I am in love!

Charlotte's Nursery

My sister is having a baby, Charlotte Marie!  Before this, I never attempted to recreate a painting. I loved the lambs I did before so I tried them again.  This was also the first time I remember painting on a flat canvas so small (8x10).  It has its challenges but can be done so quickly without using many materials.  I think I could get used to this.  The frame Carol purchased in Jackson.  I think the painting and frame compliment each other so well and it will look WONDERFUL in the nursery (send pictures, Carol)!

Photoshop: Here I Come!

This is my first ever silhouette.  It's taken me a year to dig into Photoshop but I am now determined.  As you can guess, this is Brody!

One sheep, two sheep

I made some finishing touches on the painting tonight and I really think I will leave it as is.  It has to be shipped within the month, after all.  Gosh, I have missed this!  I keep trying to find my niche (and ones I enjoy).  These type of paintings may be it!

New Painting: One sheep, two sheep

I started a new painting this weekend.  Cara, one of my post college friends who now lives in Nashville, asked if I would paint something for her American Cancer Society silent Auction on April 15th.  (She is president of the Junior Board. I am so very proud!) I am so flattered she thought of me.  I needed a little motivation lately to get back to my art room.

The background on this painting goes back to last fall when I visited Virginia Tech.  They have several fields of sheep associated with the agricultural school.  They were around the corner from my hotel.  I can still hear the lambs.  It was amazing.  Have you ever seen a flock of baby lambs run?  You need to.

Stay tuned for updates! I need to finish this week so it can get to drying!
