Tropical Cottage

I worked off and on for a few months on this painting, but started getting frustrated when I felt my style was getting a little "tight'.  I got a little help from above and now I can't stop painting!  :o)

Porch Time

I painted this yesterday afternoon after finishing another piece~ I wanted to just keep painting!!!  This will be heading to the Cary Gallery of Artists when I change out my work tomorrow.

Buoys "re-do"

I actually painted this 2 years ago, but it's always bothered me because it seemed too dark...  Well, I was inspired to do something about it today!  I lightened up the background and brightened the buoys.  I don't even have the original photo anymore, so I was just "winging it".  I am MUCH happier with it now!  (scroll down to see the original)

Gannon and Colton II

This past weekend we headed home for a surprise 40th birthday party for my sister-in-law.  (Today's her actual birthday!)  She was sooo surprised!  It was a quick trip, but well worth it- her Mom and best friend from High School did an AMAZING job with the party and keeping it a secret.  

I decided a few weeks ago to paint this for her of her 2 boys from a couple of summers ago.  I'd had it in my "to paint" file for a while, and the time seemed just right~  ;o)

Happy Birthday Nancy Pillow Moore!!!
