What Do You Think?

9"x 12"
original oil painting

This painting is near and dear to me.  It hangs in my home and I would grab it if ever I fled my house in an emergency!  
  One of the girls in the painting is my daughter.  She was in college at the time. 
We were perusing the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.  I have always appreciated that she is a willing participant for a trip through galleries and museums.

Displaying Art

Hanging art can be a big decision for some.  It does not have to be an ordeal.  Trace the framed piece of art onto newspaper and mark the position of the wire or hook on the newspaper.  Tape the tracing onto the wall wherever you fancy.  Step back and see if you like the spot.  DO NOT HANG YOUR ART TOO HIGH!   It is almost never too low (no matter what the man in your life tells you.)  :)   When you have the perfect spot chosen, affix your hanger to the wall right through the newspaper.  Tear the newspaper away.  Hang the art.  Enjoy

Rockin' Robin

oil on panel
colorful and expressive

   If you are a robin and you are alive and breathing, it is your lot in life to sing about your day.  We are the lucky recipients of their job.  It isn't always easy to hear their songs through the noise of life, but its such a treat when we do.  Go birds.

It's a great day in South Carolina.

Fitting In With Dolly

5"x 7" oil
on museum quality panel


Animals have no problem wrapping themselves around the concept of fitting in.  They love their peeps and their home, no matter.  It is just not a problem, if along the way, life is not a perfect fit.  They simply make do. So what if part of you hangs over the edge.  Relax.  Take a nap. 

This is Dolly.  She survived Hurricane Katrina.  She believes she fits in everywhere!
