"Vikings Get Cold, Too," watercolor on paper,  unframed, 15" x  10"    (I painted this picture of the Viking Festival in Waco, TX. People were dressed in hats with horns and furs; it was a cold morning, and this barefoot "Viking" wrapped a blanket around her, drank coffee, and moved around a lot to stay                                                     warm. )

These two 11" x 14" oil paintings depict dancers at the Cherokee Pow-Wow held in Clinton AR; the boy is titled "Feather Dancer" (on left) and the girl is called "Jingle Dancer" (below) for the musical sounds made by the metal cylinders attached to her dress. They competed for dance awards. Each one is painted on canvas, unframed.

"Old Cowboy", Watercolor on paper, 11" x 15";  this man was sitting on a chuckwagon exercising his horses for the National Chuckwagon Races held in Clinton AR. It was a hot day but his hat and his beard kept him from getting sunburned.

 


"Reflecting", watercolor on 300-lb. paper, 15" x 22"; her face reflectsthe sun
 as her mind reflects her day. 


"Kitchen Madonna," acrylic on canvas board, 12" x 24"; as my grandson's wife stood, lost in thought and washing lettuce for dinner, I was captivated by the light on her face and her beautiful long hair. I didn't strive for a portrait, just the feeling of peace and the beauty of the moment, in the simple things of life.

 


"Running Shoes", watercolor on paper, 11" x 15"; although no one back then had Nikes, even the first settlers of the New World had to protect their feet! I imagined this scene, just as this hunter is probably imagining the "shopping" he is going to do out among the critters. Undoubtedly,
he'll bring home some kind of bacon! 


"Santa's Workout", watercolor on paper, 11" x 15"; don't you think Santa has to work out and stay in shape to do all he does? Of course he loves those cookies...Cartoons are so much fun!

 
SOLD; "Padre Island Angler", watercolor, 8" x 12"; this painting is from a photo I took of a very tired fisherman on the Gulf Coast after he pulled this big redfish in.

 
SOLD; "The Recital", watercolor on 300-lb. paper, 15" x 22"; both this pianist painting and the other one above are from the same photo I took of one of my daughter's piano students as she played a beautiful Steinway grand piano in a recital. She had beautiful posture, and played well, too. 

 

These two paintings are separate studies of the same model.  Again, the painting was not meant to be a portrait, but to show her intense concentration as she listened to the speaker.
