Summerfall - Howdy Doody- oil painting


Summerfall is another of my contemporary realism oil paintings, 30″ x 36″, featuring my vintage toys and ceramics. The main figure is the Indian Princess marionette, Winterspring Summerfall, from the Howdy Doody television show. Also included is a vintage scarf, a chalk figure (the kind you used to be able to win at carnivals) and a mule from an 1800’s mechanical toy.

Cordial Cherry


This painting is 9″ x 12″, oil on masonite. I don’t know if I wanted to simply capture the beauty of the cordial cherry or if I was just looking for an excuse to buy myself a box of chocolates! Yum!

This weeks painting - Coffee and Strawberries


This is the oil painting I just finished. Coffee and Strawberries is 24" x 18" on canvas. The coffee pot is a 19th century family  heirloom which has been past down to me.  I chose this subject because I like painting reflections in silver.

This painting can be purchased at the Salon International exhibit

This oil painting again uses vintage ceramic cowgirl pieces. ‘No Man’s Girl‘ is oil on canvas and is 30″ x 40″. The title comes from the book cover in the background. Red is my favorite color and this painting has plenty of it!
