Frio River in October

8x10 oil on cotton canvas panel
$250 (email me if interested)

I am still painting from photos I took when Jim and I went camping in October. It was such a beautiful place, every where I turned I envisioned another painting. Thank heaven for digital cameras. I can take as many photos as I want without worrying about the cost. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year!

I am still trying to paint everyday, but with the holidays here and all the extra projects I like to do has kept me pretty busy.

Artist Christmas card

I decided to put my little angel on some blank cards. If anyone is interested I am selling 5 to a pack with envelopes for $12.50 plus $1.95 shipping and handling. I can mail them the same day. They will be shipped in a padded envelope and themselves in a clear sealed protective bag. I have started making cards using a lot of my paintings so again if anyone is interested I can ship single or any combination. They all come in clear sealed protective bags. Christmas is almost here!

Ortega carved angel

5x7 oil on stretched cotton canvas
$75 (email me if interested)

I had this little carved angel hanging in my studio. I bought it in Santa Fe last time I was there. It is signed on the back Louise Ortega. The sales lady told me the whole family carves, so each one will be a little different. I thought she(the angel) would look sweet on a Christmas card. I used a palette knife to get the texture of the carved wood.

salsa bowl #2

6x6 oil on cotton canvas panel
$75 (email me if interested)

I mentioned in my last post that I had painted these bowls twice. Well here is the second one. This is a odd shaped little bowl with three legs. So in the painting it gives off the illusion that it is painted wrong. Because of that I believe I like the first one better. I have several more of these bowls in different shapes so I think I will paint them again and again. They sure would make a nice series hanging in a kitchen. Does anyone know where I can get 6"x6" frames without spending an arm and a leg?

salsa bowls with cross

6x6 oil on cotton canvas panel
$100 (email me if interested)

I haven't worked on a still life in quite awhile, so I went searching through the house for something interesting to paint. I love the colors in these clay bowls. I wanted to see how it was to paint something that was painted on itself. Does that make any sense? I ended up painting two that weekend.
