American Flower Pot

We had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend here.  Warm weather has finally arrived!  The trees  just about have all of their leaves and the world is glorious.  Our little town of Antioch, IL (pop. 8500 or so) has put up American flags on all the light posts downtown.  It’s a little slice of midwest Americana.  That’s probably what inspired this  piece.  Flowers and flags put a smile on my face!

Valentine Gifts

I love anything with hearts so I’ve painted a few.   You are probably aware that Valentine’s Day is coming up fast.  If you are looking for a unique gift, have you considered a little piece of original art?   These (and more) are all available right now in my Etsy shop.  But don’t wait too long as these are one of a kind pieces.   Any of these would surely say ” I Love You” in just the right way.Image

Day 15 A Pocket Full of Posies

Ring around the rosie, a pocket full of posies…..  I’ve had this image in my head for a while and thought I would paint my own “pocket” of flowers.  It just seemed to need a bunny also.  He’s looking for his Valentine.  Will he find her before it’s too late?

Snowman with Red Birds

I did a little painting yesterday while I was waiting for the Trick or Treaters.  Now that Halloween is over, I can start thinking about winter–the fun stuff only!  This snowman will never be lonely with a the companionship of his birdie friends.
