A Peaceful Place


This is my first oil painting after a lot of years away. It is a just a small 9x13 on canvas board and was painted from another artist's work in an instructional book. Bev Damme was my instructor and it was accepted into the 2008 Colorado State Fair. It took many hours to get completed and right. I am fairly happy with it.

Dogwood Flowers


This is a small oil painting of Dogwood flowers on a piece of wood that my Dad finished for his and my Mom's friend Wessie.

American Eagle 1


This is oil on a wooden box that I did for Bev. She sold it in one of her art & crafts shows.

Mail Pouch


Here is an acrylic done on a saw blade, in the spring of 08, while on vacation in Ohio. It was done from another artists work (I've got to quit cheating). It was done with some really cheap acrylics because they would not let me take my oils on the plane (they are flammable). It was a gift to my dear Aunt Suellen. She likes the Mail Pouch barns because that is what her dad used to chew.

Aunt Suellen - Charcoal


This is a black and white charcoal pencil drawing I did of my Aunt Suellen (my Mom's sis) when I was in high school (probably '78-'80). I was told she looks like me, but I think I made the drawing look a little like me, ha.

Bethany - Pencil Drawing


This is a pencil drawing of my cute little cousin Bethany (Aunt Suellen's only daughter after 3 boys), done '78-'80. She was probably about 7 years old. I may have aged her, but I don't know where the photo is so I'm not sure.
