"Lindsey's Kids"

These are 10" by 8" oil portraits that I painted from photos that my fabulous friend Lindsey took of her three darling children. I changed the color of some of their clothes and used the same background color to tie the three portraits together. I also posted some more of my family portraits on my Glamma Fabulous blog...

6" by 6" Jewels

I've been delving into some mixed media lately. I love these small canvases and the paintings remind me of little jewels. $75 each. Contact me at if you are interested in adding these little beauties to your art collection. (personally, I thought about hanging them on the wall above my kitchen counter underneath the cabinets. I already hang some horizontal format art there and it looks fabulous)

"Sitting Pretty"

When my family was over last Sunday for dinner, I saw Pepper sitting watching her older cousins. She looked so cute with that little bow in her hair and the bow on the back of her outfit screamed for a photo. I sketched this portrait of her onto a 24" by 18" canvas using graphite pencils. It looked so nice that I decided not to paint over it and leave the sketch alone. I then sealed it with crystal clear permanent fixative and a semigloss top coat.

I sure do love those grandbabies of mine!
