Art Sale! Paintings Reduced!

I am having an art sale at my home this weekend. If you are in the Brandon area feel free to come by. I am calling it the "Out with the old---In with the new" sale. I will have some of my paintings, such as those shown here, drastically reduced.
If you see something that you love and are not in the area, feel free to email me (info in the sidebar to the right) for prices, sizes and shipping/delivery possibilites.

I have long since decided that there is no rhyme or reason to what makes a good or "sellable" painting. It just takes the right person seeing the right painting at the right time. So even though the paintings have been with me for a while and have not sold yet, they are still awesome original oil paintings. They are just looking for the right home.
(To those of you that subscribe to my blog, I apologize for the earlier post of just the title. I don't know what happened.)

Tomatoes and Tabasco....

(these paintings are sold)
These are paintings that I did for the Gumtree Festival. I have painted many tomatoes and Tabascos before, but I have sold every one of them. So "if it ain't broke don't fix it" is what I say. The tomatoes are 12 x12 on 1.5" gallery wrap canvas. The Tobasco is 12x24 on 1.5" gallery wrap. I think they even look good as a group of four.

When I return from Tupelo next week I have some commissions that I have to get right to work on, but once those are done I will have the luxury of going through my photo file and picking out what grabs me that day. I won't have to paint what I'm told or what I think will sell well. I just get to paint what I feel like painting. Now that's fun!

3 months old today!



McKinley and Kayleigh

Well, I have just returned from keeping the grandtwins so that their mom and dad could go to the Kentucky Derby. Let's just suffice it to say that Granzie loved every minute of it. I am totally exhausted and would go back tomorrow in a heartbeat.

They are in the stage now where they smile at you. NO, it is not "gas" anymore, they are definitely smiling at you. Their little personalities are developing and they are so much more social.

They will just melt you. They are a little ornery when it comes to that frustrating as all hell. But they are SO good otherwise. They ar sleeping all night most nights, they do not fuss between feeding times, they sleep well and boy are they strong when it comes to body control. They have impressed their Dr. by how well they can hold their heads up and how well they can support themselves on their legs. The Drs. still expect them to be "behind" since they were born early, but they are catching up fast in every arena.
I painted a little between DoubleDecker and leaving for Kentucky, and I will try to post those tomorrow. I leave Friday for Tupelo where I will participate in the Gumtree Festival. I did well there two years ago, so I hope it will be a good one this time, too.
