Singing Lesson

I'm not sure whether this painting is finished. I've been working on it most evenings for the past two weeks and need to step away from it for awhile. I've just been too close to it.

This figurine is one of a pair of Hummels that sit in our china cabinet. I've also been working on the other piece, which is a little girl feeding chickens, "Feeding Time." My husband looked them up on the internet and found their names.  He bought these in Oberammergau in 1966, three years before we were married. We've had them a very, very long time. We're showing our age, but these Hummels don't look a day over six!

This is my little Rocky guy. He's a love.

Summer Rose

The roses have been spectacular this year. I don't know the name of this rose - it was in the garden at the Hopewell B&B.

Just Ducky


I like this little toy - it waddles when you pull it. My grandson kindly lent it to me to paint. When I asked what the duck's name was, he said, "He doesn't really have a name...he's just 'Ducky'."

Little Red Truck

This little red truck was the DPW painting challenge of the week. I especially enjoyed it because it's a local Eugene truck. I love Eugene, and it makes me happy to read that Carol Marine and her family enjoy living in the Eugene area.

This lily is from our garden. The flowers have been so beautiful this summer...they're beautiful every summer!

Bowl of Cherries 2

Here's the re-do of the previous painting. I like using black-toned panels and plan to use them more often.
