"Butterflies for Mom"

"The Tea Room"
An original taken from a photo that I took while I was in Springfield, TN. I had just finished my first art show, Strolling Thru the Arts when I noticed the front of Burdett's Tea Room. I really liked the way all the lights were reflected in the window. If your ever in Springfield, stop in for a visit. It's a great little shop and the food is delicious.
I painted "Childhood Dreams" to be displayed in an art show. I used a photo of my daughter, Amanda, to be on stage with the ballerina. Here's the question that came to mind after I finished it. Is the child thinking about the future or the ballerina thinking about her childhood?
My granddaughter, Kaitlin saw a note card laying on my desk and ask me to paint it for her. She is now 15 and still talks about this painting.
"Morning in Bidderford Pool"
This is my very first original painting. Ricky and I were visiting friends in Bidderford Pool, ME. We had walked up to the local shops so I could look around. Ricky and Ells decided to read the paper while they waited for me. I could not resist taking the photo as I came out and saw them. It was a beautiful morning and a great trip.
"K and R Wines" SOLD
This is another original that I set up. Ricky and I used to make wine so I used our bottles, some grapes, my lace shawl, a piece of kitchen backsplash and a special wine glass. My friend Jana brought me a set of glasses all the way from Australia.
