A Kuperman and a Martin

We were out at an art slumber party. Due to the weather, we didn't get a lot of painting accomplished. However, crucial art topics were discussed. This is a group of artists that I went on a painting trip to France in 2008. This summer we are going to Italy to paint!

DPW Challenge - Help Japan

This weeks challenge is to donate the sale of our paintings to aid Japan. This painting is for sale for $60. All but the shipping and handling are going to the Japan Red Cross. Please email me at if you want to purchase this painting. It is 6 X 8, oil on canvas.

The theme of the challenge was "home". I was born in Austin and after high school I moved away and didn't come back to Austin until several years ago. Austin is always my home and always will be. I painted the Capital Building of Austin. Capital of Texas. My State.

Here is the link to see all the other paintings in the challenge: DPW CHALLENGE.

Art at Brazilia Waxing Spa

If you have a chance, stop by Brazilia Waxing Spa to see a wall of my Art. It is located at 34th and Guadalupe. Thanks to my husband, sister and Brother-n-law we hung this artwork yesterday by wire. No nails in the wall. It took FOREVER. It was worth it.

Max - touch up

Oh, Max... I did some touch ups on Max and tried to take a better photo. Photographing art is an art in itself. I never looks as good as the original painting.

Think about having a painting done of your pet!

The song, "And they called it Puppy Loooove.." was going through my head as I painted this painting. I know I'm showing my age...

6 X 6 Oil on Panel. NFS. I had to do several paintings for the One Stroke with one color challenge. It was tough but great practice for me. I had several successful paintings trying this method and I need to continue painting with more color.

When You Gotta Go....

8 x 10. Oil on Canvas. Okay, so normally I do nature or animal, zen type paintings. Anyway, this isn't my usually subject but I was in a humorous mood and this guy doing his business spoke to me. I thought it was just too cute. I originally started off trying to do the one stroke challenge but ended up painting regular, however, it did loosen me up a little to have the One Stroke in mind while painting.
