I love trains! I see these trains rolling through town almost every day. There are others I plan to paint, also. I love to hear them--the rumble and the horns. Even if I'm miles away, on a quiet night I can hear them.
These three paintings just returned from an exhibition at Angelina College.

Oil on canvas on panel, 9"x12". This began as a plein air painting, but I completed it in the studio. Evening is such a beautiful time of day! This place is at my dad's farm in Leon County, Texas. It's a beautiful place any time of day, any season, in any weather.

...Lufkin parks, that is. Here are my 3 latest Lufkin Parks plein air paintings. My friend, Barb, and I plan to paint all the Lufkin parks. We started in April, and so far, we've painted 4. All of these are 8x10 oil on panel.

NFS 10x8 oil on panel. This is a portrait of my Uncle Wilton. I started this portrait from a photo I took of him about 2 years ago, but I got busy and had to put it aside. I decided I was going to finish it this week, and I did! I hope you can see what a kind and wonderful man he is.

SOLD Cows Grazing--watercolor & ink sketch, 5x8. These cows aren't really purple; they're black, but in the evening light, they looked purple. There has been a lot of rain this summer, and the grass is tall and plentiful.

Oil on 6"x6" gallery wrapped canvas. This is another of the little bird paintings in the Museum of East Texas exhibition (for more information, call 936-639-4434). This little Eastern Phoebe is holding a grasshopper in its beak. I loved painting these birds! It was fun and challenging painting the 1 1/2" deep sides of these canvases.

Oil on 6"x6" gallery wrapped canvas. This is another of my birds in the four person exhibition at the Museum of East Texas (for more information, call 936-639-4434). I watched this little Eastern Phoebe (a type of flycatcher) dart around near the ground catching bugs at our farm in Central Texas.
