Let's Eat

Another Leland painting. My daughter took one great picture that had so much going on, that I'm getting several paintings from it by cropping. It's fun! This is 8x10 oil on gessoboard, $60.00 on dailypaintworks. Thanks for looking and for your comments!

Birmingham Community House Fun

Wow, it's been a fun 2 weeks at the Birmingham Community House! Art camp for kids, and Canvas and Corks last night......."Downtown Winedown". The scene was inspired by one of my paintings, "At Rest Two". These are awesome! They did a great job, especially since it was a fairly complex pattern and we had limited time. Very fun! Thank you, Patty, Nevan, and Meg for help and contributing to a great night. And the kids? I think they learned a few things and had some fun. I know I did.   
The Community House is a nonprofit that helps communities by providing educational, cultural and wellness programs, and also scholarships to improve people’s personal and professional lives. I appreciate my association with them!

A New Spin

8x10  oil on board  starting bid on dailypaintworks is $50.00

Karen's Butterflies

I was asked by my cousin to paint this as a surprise for his wife's birthday. Her father had passed away in this house and the next day, she sat on this chair and watched 3 white butterflies circling. She believes, as many people do, that white butterflies symbolize a departed loved one's visit. I didn't know if I could do it justice (he had sent me a photo). I found out that she cried when she saw it. I think it was a good cry!
