Sometimes I just like to play with paint. When I finish a painting I will use the leftover paint to experiment until a composition settles in and shows itself. This one took a while, so it has lots of layers and textures. (see below) Kinda fun!

50 years!! This adorable couple recently celebrated 50 years of joy in their relationship. This was painted from a small snapshot taken while they were dating and has so much charm! The bow, the flip of hair, the coke bottle, the Munsingwear polo. And the smiles on their faces! This was a delight to paint. Sweet gift from their daughter.
My mother-in-law grew up in this home in Malakoff, Texas. It was built in the 1880's and added onto in 1920 when she was 2 years old by Uncle Ireanus. I painted it as a commission for my husband's cousin who still lives there so he could give it to his daughter. The pecan tree in the front still produces loads of tiny, sweet East Texas pecans.
