Calf Portrait

This is a calf painting that I had more time than one hour to paint. I was focusing on painting the white face with the blue shadows to form the look of the fuzzy face.
This acrylic painting measures 11"x14" and is $150.

Calf on the Rail

This is a painting I did for practice for the Quick Draw one hour painting
at the Phippen Western Art Show in Prescott, May 2016
This one took two hours to paint. I finally got it down to one hour
for the show and that one auctioned off for $300. It was a fun challenge.
This painting measures 11"x14" and will be on sale for $150

New Calf

 Another life has entered the world. I tried to capture the expression of new life in the eye and position of the head.
This is a smaller piece measuring 8"x10" and I found a great frame for it that finishes it perfectly.

Sunflower at Night

What do sunflowers do at night?
They rest of course!
 All day they follow the sun so it goes to show that they need rest as we all do.

Bee Import

Bees and flowers are  fun composition.
I enjoy getting up close and spending time watching bees doing their business.
I certainly will be doing more of these fun paintings with this delightful subject.

Hummer and Hibiscus

Hibiscus is one of my favorite flowers to enjoy visually.
Humming birds are definitely one of my favorite birds to watch.
I have a feeder for these incredible birds out my back door and can observe
 them from my kitchen window.   I am learning about what flowers to plant to attract humming birds.
