My Back Yard is an 8"x10" plein air oil painting on canvas that took me 3 or 4 sessions on my porch to complete. Light changes so fast early in the morning that I only had about an hour each morning to work on it. My back yard is a peaceful retreat from daily stress. The colored stone walkway leads from the garage to my studio door.

SOLD The Firefly, oil on canvas, 10 x 20 x 1 1/2 inches. The Firefly was a passenger train with the Frisco Lines from 1935 to 1960. It served the Kansas City, Tulsa, Oklahoma City route. This is a commission that I just completed. It was a lot of fun to paint.

SOLD Oil on canvas, 12 x 12 x 1 1/2 inch gallery wrapped canvas. (The painting continues around onto the sides of the canvas.) We have lots of ruby throated hummingbirds right now. I think it's migration season. I took pictures of many of them and of my hanging baskets and put pictures together for this painting. I am donating it to the auction at the Museum of East Texas fundraiser, Dinner and Dancing, which is this weekend.

The Path, plein air, palette knife painting, oil on panel, 5 x 7 inches. I was so mesmerized by the beauty of the morning that I painted a second scene in Herty Park. There was no one else around except for one man who walked on that path while we painted. It was such a pleasant place.
Herty Park, plein air, oil on canvas on panel, 12 x 16 inches. The weather was perfect this morning as we painted another park in Lufkin. Herty Park is hidden in a neighborhood. You would never find it if you weren't looking for it. It's a beautiful, quiet place. I loved the 8:00 am shadows and had to work quickly to establish the shadow pattern before it changed.

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.
