Fayette, Ohio

I had a booth at the Fayette Fall Fest this year and sold some coach prints. I painted this street scene while I sat there. it was a beautiful day- low 70's and sunny with a s light breeze. Everyone was buzzing about the economy and not too many people were spending money so I guess i was fortunate to sell anything. The mayor was going to buy this when she saw it in her early stages but then she backed out at the end of the day, admitting she probably needed to save some money for an upcoming wedding. I am pretty sure I can sell it for more than she was going to spend.

Princess the Wolf

My fourth attempt at painting a decent wolf and I have finally succeeded. This painting won the Judges Choice award in the professional division in a recent exhibit at the Fulton County Fair. She will be hard to part with but she is up for sale as they all are.

When in doubt paint food-- junk food

I have been so bad about keeping this blog up to date. The weather has been beautiful and I have spent lots of time outdoors enjoying it. School is back in session and I seem to have a bit more time to paint. Here is today's effort. The last Krispy Kreme donut in the box. My husband and my child both wanted it but I said NO!!! It was going to be a painting. I painted this after dark so I used a warm spotlight. When I was finished I ate the darn thing.
