This is an 18 X 18 inch oil painting of Payam’s cabin.  It is a gift.


Tulip Oil Painting

This is a 14 x 18 oil painting of a tulip called Frank.  This is the 4th in a series that my family and I jokingly call looking for Marvin.  I think this tulip looks like he is calling someone, in this case, his buddy Marvin.  “Hey Marvin….Maaaaarvin!”.  He always seems to be calling Marvin.  In this painting, he is at Conchas Lake.  My sister asked for another “Looking for Marvin” painting to match the one she has of Frank in the desert but she wanted a brown sky and blue ground and this is what I ended up painting.

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.

3/4″ solid wood frame, natural cotton duck canvas

This is a 16 X 20 inch oil painting of a haboob.  I absolutely hate those things.  They leave nothing but a horrible mess in my back yard and they are scary.  I like the colors in this painting despite the subject.

Candle Light II

This is a 14 x18 inch oil painting titled “Candle Light II”.  This painting is not textured like the first painting of Candle Light.  My candles always burn in such a way that wax ends up all over the tables and sometimes the floor.  I need to learn that candles and ceiling fans don’t do well together.
