Art for Darfur

Art for Darfur was so great. I hope more people can join us next year. The painting was purchased that I donated by a wonderful young man who spends a lot of his time and energies to help these troubled countries by designing and building schools for them in his spare time( which I am sure he does not have much of )but he really gives back.
Truly- I am so pleased to have him own this piece of art. So wonderful.

Easter Sunday

Great day this Easter Sunday. Nice, cool and rainy.

The girls were here for brunch. We cooked together and had laughs and shared .

Its Lacey's last year before A&M so I wanted it special and it was.

I am about to head into my art room to paint.

By the way- I just received a letter from the 24th Texas & Neighbors art Exhibition and I have been selected as one of 14 award winners out of the 81 Juried into the show. This competition was I think between 5 states and almost 400 artist. I feel very very grateful and super happy to have been chosen.

We get the awards on Sunday the 26th. I will up date you later.

I am attaching a new painting I did over lent.

Happy Easter:

Childrens short stories

I started a few paintings last week- one of a cow and another of a pony. I was working with a new medium, which I had never used before. Its ink and then some overlays of acrylic and then some oil. Very interesting. They both turned out very child like so I am going to use them with my children's short stories. Let me know what you think?
Have a wonderfully creative day.
