I got to paint alot yesterday--yay!  A large one I finished is going to the Commissary in Birmingham AL.  But the other thing I've been working on are some charcoal drawings for my Dad's latest book.  This is the last one, and it's off to the publisher.

My Dad approving it...the messy desk of an author :)

I love chair paintings so much--my sister Claire does some great ones!  I added a purse to this one, making it a little more colorful.

This small board was a great shape to paint one of my favorite subjects--a Tabasco bottle.  Unlike most of my others, this one isn't as crooked, but very textural with lots of golden-greenish color in the background.  It would make a perfect piece of art for any Cajun's kitchen!  Or anyone who loves Tabasco like I do!

A common subject for me--Gustav's most awesome creativity--the Eiffel Tower. It was so powerfully beautiful to me when I saw it many years ago--saw it, photographed it, went to the top of it and photographed Paris from there--really experienced the glory of it. Do you have a story from when you saw it?

I began this painting as a demo for an interview that a young girl was doing about me for her class. She had chosen me as a hero--imagine that! ha! I painted this while she filmed, didn't finish it, and finally finished it last week.

Bottle Parade


This painting is a study I did of glass with a line-up of some of my favorite bottles. My husband had enjoyed the beer in the green beer bottle the night before, and I told him, "I'm going to paint that tomorrow!" So, I did--plus a bunch of other bottles. I love the colors in this. The labels were fun too. My class was inspired and decided to paint this too earlier this week.

Wine & Olives

This past week in my Creative Spirit class, we painted still lifes with bottles of all kinds. I added some olives and salt & pepper to the collection of glass (our study) and made this subject--one of my favorites. Look for another painting coming of bottles--the girls enjoyed painting them and did a fantastic job on their paintings. Forgive me for not posting so often, I am teaching alot and also working on some commissions that really need to be done. I'll post those when I finish them!
