Green Frog Oil Painting

This is an 11 x 14 inch oil painting of a green frog on a tree stump.  I painted this one for my husband.  I wanted to give him something just because I love him and I like to paint him pictures.  He always appreciates them.  He loved it and is taking it to the office.  My husband named this painting “Slick Rick”.


Owl Oil Painting, Wise Old Owl, Blue Owl


Blue Owl Painting (Who?), Original Owl Oil Painting, Home Decor, Art, Bird of Prey

This is a 16×20″ oil painting of a blue owl.

I love owls. They are beautiful creatures. However, I worry about owls as well because I raise back yard chickens. When I think about owls in the real world,  I think of nocturnal creatures that inhabit ruins with huge red eyes. I think of hunters. People describe red eyes peering out of the darkness and think of monsters…but in my painting world, the owl is is cute, fluffy bird with great hair.

Raven Oil Painting, He’s a Sassy Bird

This is a 14 X 18 painting done on commission of a raven.  He’s quite sassy and his eyes seem to be smiling.  It reminds me of when my dogs get into something they shouldn’t and look at me like…what?  I didn’t do it.

I don’t know who lost their beads, but Mr. Sassy has them now and he broke them!





Rooster in Pajamas Oil Pianting

This is a 12 X 12 rooster wearing pajamas that I painted for an elephant gift.  I have a thing for roosters.  I think they are lovely…but they get mean and crowing bugs neighbors for some reason.  I personally love to hear roosters crow…all day long!  I needed two gifts but uh…I sold one of them the night before my Christmas party.  I decided to keep the rooster for myself and painted a few owls in acrylic because I needed something dry by the time the party started.  This little guy is in my kitchen hanging with an old farm truck I painted with the Art Sherpa.

Crow Oil Painting, “Decisions”

This is an 11×14 inch painting of a crow I titled “Decisions”.  Most of this painting is done in varying shades of black and white on top of an orange under painting to bring out the color of the trinket in the crows mouth and the little red marble or bead…observers choice.  I picture him looking around and guarding his marble.  He can’t decide which he wants, the trinket or the marble.  His beak can only hold one.  Maybe he is waiting for a buddy to come get the marble?

Ted the Rooster Oil Painting

This is a 16 X 20 inch oil painting of a rooster named Ted.  I painted him as a favor for a friend of my husband.  My husband has a few paintings of mine in his office at work.  One of those paintings is a rooster that we used to own named Moose.  She has a rooster named Ted and she asked if I would paint him.  Ted is black, but I thought he should be blue.  She loves her painting of Ted!

Swamp Flamingo Oil Painting

This is an 11×14 inch oil painting of a flamingo hanging out in the swamp.  I painted this for the heck of it, but my mom took it for my dad.  She framed it and hung it next to her crazy peacocks.  I like the fuzzy back ground set against the perfect flamingo in this painting.
