Lilies for Jeanette

It's Christmas night 2009 and I am enjoying being snowed in at home with my family. Out on our lawn is one tree decorated with red and white lights in memory of my beautiful sister-in-law. This bouquet of lilies is also dedicated to her and our special memories of times spent together.

Blue Plums

Small works are an exercise for many artists to work alla prima with fresh and immediate results. I did these blue plums in such a mood. They remind me of summers at my grandmother's.  Sold!

Too Old to Care

Girlfriend reunions are a once-a-year highlight.  Last time we visited Mona in beautiful Cheyenne, WY.  We took a road trip to the  Chugwater Chili Festival.  These women were enjoying the rock and roll band and I enjoyed watching them dance!  We all had fun in the sun.

Cimarron River

The pink sky over the prairie just appeals to me every time I look at it.
