Yes, I'm still around

I have become terrible at keeping up this blog! I will try to do better ;) Here are a couple of paintings I finished recently...

Every morning the Chuckars come down off the mountain to eat and drink. I've always wanted to paint one, they are so sweet. 💕 In the spring they bring their babies down to our yard, this is one of the Mommas. 

5 x 7 oil on canvas

This is my beloved Mini Schnauzer, Katie. She passed away 4 months ago at 13 years old. I don't think my heart will ever be the same. I miss her and think of her every day. Painting her portrait was very healing and it was as if she and I were connecting. 

9 x 14 oil on linen

Trip to Atlanta & New Work

In October I had the opportunity to travel to Atlanta, Georgia and plein air paint with my friend Amanda Lovett - I had the time of my life! Here are a few that I painted from the MANY references I came home with. I've got several others in the works and will post them as soon as they're completed. 
"Chesnok Red"

"Georgia On My Mind"
