The iris is one of my favorite flowers to paint.....a sure sign of spring!

The trees sometimes grow very tall in the Texas woods. The morning sun is shining through them. A special time of day!
I saw this view in Michigan at a Farmer's Market. Painted it later back in Texas and won a blue ribbon!
This was painted after I spent some time on the Galveston Coast. The view is still there, but the porch and much more was destroyed by the hurricane.
Take a drive a mile from me and this is what you'll see today. This was a technique in which I wet and crinkled the paper before painting on it.
I saw this vase of tulips while visiting in Michigan. I loved the lighting....and so later back home I painted it and won Best Floral in the Brazos Valley Juried Art Show.

I think that I have seen this same view in Minnesota, Montana, Michigan, and Texas. Love a fresh water stream!
Sometimes I like to paint some of my antiques. Who did the little vase belong to? Painting gets me thinking.
Living in Montana brought the wonderful experience of hiking in the mountains. You can imagine where my thoughts were as I painted this scene.
I did this painting after driving down this Texas Country road. I loved the way the shadows fell across the road.
