House on Bridge Street
9 x 12 Oil on canvas
I painted this on the second day of the paint out.
The bright sun on these burgandy coleus against the green house are what made me want to paint this scene.

Waiting for a Restoration
11 x 14 Oil on Canvas
I love old trucks and this one was calling my name to paint it. It was on a sunny, beautiful day in Granbury.

Hunter Park
9 x 12 oil on canvas
This was painted at the new park in Granbury with a group of artist during the Harvest Moon Festival. The bright trees are what drew us to this spot. The beautiful garden added even more color.

11 x 14 oil on canvas
This bike is set up outside a very tiny, but very busy dress shop in Granbury. This day the weather was picture perfect. I even got the umbrella out and that means low breeze.

1st Presbyterian Church
12 x 12 Oil on canvas
I painted this at the paint out in Granbury on kick off day. I have always admired this beautiful Church and was excited to get this opportunity to paint it. It was a cool, windy, cloudy day and turned sunny just as I was packing up.

American Legion Hall
Oil on canvas

I painted this from the steps of City Hall in Granbury during the Harvest Moon Festival Paint out.
It was a cool, clear early morning. The sun was spotlighting this building and the lilac flowers out front caught my eye.

Rose of Sharon

Rose of Sharon
11 x 14 oil on canvas

I plucked the flowers out of the garden and the red vase was a find in a resale shop.
