Redhead Duck Painting

WooHooo!!!! We're back from Sacramento attending the California Duck Stamp contest judging! I took 3rd place Nation wide and the only Calif. artist to get into the top 3. The competition was tough and I'm so proud to get a ribbon at all!!! I had my wonderful husband Rich holding my hand and my great friends there too. ...Thank you so much for caring and being there with me. ♥

Canada Goose

(includes custom framing)

"Canada Goose"
Small Painting Series

4" X 5" original

I recently went on a houseboat trip with my family to Shasta Lake in Northern California. Though this was strictly a fishing trip, a happy goose couple made their presence be known and followed us around from time to time looking for a handout. We didn’t feed them, but I did take advantage of this great photo opportunity and decided to make one of them my newest painting.

Comanche's passing

Comanche was a majestic ambassador. I will miss seeing him greatly. I'd like to share my pastel painting of him... his eyes were so gentle and spoke of his soul.

Hello there! First let me wish a Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderful mothers out there!! It's been awhile since I have posted because I have been busy working on my entry for the California Duck Stamp Contest. I completed and delivered it to Sacramento and I am waiting for a date for the live judging which I hear will be sometime before the end of this month. I can't wait to post the image for all of you to see when the judging is complete! My next project will be another small painting with a youtube video. With the time it has taken to complete the duck stamp entry and with the start of the art and craft show season, I haven't been able to work on my small painting series. I am so excited to get going again!!! I'm in the process of choosing what I will be painting (I'm bouncing around a couple of ideas) and I will post it when it's done!!
