This last one I did for a pear project for a group I belong to. It is called "Pears and Grapes". I composed and photographed the reference photo from some fruit I had. I think it came out somewhat muddy looking.
I am getting ready for a trip to Detroit in a couple of weeks to visit my family. I have 5 brothers and sisters and we will be together for the first  in a long time. I am so looking forward to it and hope I dont miss all the fall colors.
The painting above I did from a photo from a friend I met on webshots. She gave  me permission to paint it. It was taken in New England somewhere and is a pen and ink.  I called it "The Old and the Beautiful"

Hi and I apologize for not being here for awhile. My on line friend Cia died of cancer and it has been hard trying to concentrate. She was such a fantastic artist and a true southern belle. I will miss her so much.

I have gotton behind on adding my paintings which I have no excuse for. This one called "Looking for Seashells". These are 2 of my grandsons, Ryan and Kyle. I had to combine 2 different photos for the painting so had some problems with body sizes but think it came out ok.

Hi all,
Had a tiring but very fun weekend with 5 of my grandkids while their parents went to Vegas. I was exhausted when they left, but we did a lot of crafts and painting which was a lot of fun. I am finishing up a painting for a group I belong to on the internet and will upload it after I add the finishing touches.
