Windowsill & Sky Glow

12x12s • oil on canvas • SOLD

I love this sweet scene of the kitty in the window & the plants nearby.  Kitties always try to squeeze in-between things.  It looks as though this one managed not to knock anything down.  :-).  And this sky … what a magnificent glow!  Thanks for sharing your fantastic images.  🙂

Day Break at the Head Light & Happy Boston

12x12s • oil on canvas • SOLD

This day break … stunning, huh?  I just love the silhouette of the Head Light & the hope that day break brings.  So peaceful.  And I couldn’t resist painting this Boston Terrier as it reminded me of our ball obsessed Zoe. When there is a ball around, playing with it is the ONLY thing on her mind.  :-).

If I used YOUR image & you would like the painting, please click here for PET & here for SUNSET.

Snowy Branches on the Hill

Snowy Branches on the Hill • 6×6 • oil on canvas • $95

I took a gorgeous walk around the neighborhood earlier this morning.  So pretty.  So cold too with the blowing wind.  Here’s a painting looking from North Street towards the Hilltop Superette & the Observatory … I was just trying to capture the mood of the falling snow & heavy branches.  Shoveling is not at the top of my favorite things list, but walking around after a fresh snow is!
