That Aubie!


This is the second painting I completed today during my Iron Bowl weekend at the Auburn Art Gallery. Our awesome mascot "Aubie" is up to his old shenanigans again. I love when he pokes fun at all the sports photographers during the game by bringing his own "big gun" lens to shoot with. It's made from a 5-gallon bucket as well as others. This will be made into prints available at auburnart.com in the coming days. This original is for sale at Auburn Art . Com Gallery in Auburn right now.

Painting in Auburn

This weekend I was at Auburn University for the Iron Bowl weekend at the new Auburn Art Gallery right in the middle of all the action. They had me in a window painting all day on Saturday and for a while today on Sunday. It was so much fun, and we sold so many prints, and I even sold this original painting as well. The Momma Goldberg prints debuted, and the original oil painting is on view at the gallery. This painting sold for $900.

Coffee Mugs


At Under the Christmas Tree last weekend--a Christmas Marketplace where I set up a booth to sell my work, I painted on site these 2 small paintings of cups. Well, actually, a friend came by and saw the one on the right and wanted it and asked if I could paint another one similar to be picked up the next day. I said, "Sure!" The story is cool: The wife of this man, Mrs. Fossett, is going to Holland to visit with some American friends who live there still--the Fossetts lived there too some time ago. She is taking these as gifts to her friends since they all loved to share coffee together. I thought that was really sweet! I love the stories that go along with my paintings...I also painted one of my Eiffel Towers which sold as well over the weekend. I didn't get a photo of it....These 2 are 6x10 on wood panels from the awesome Dick Blick. sold
