Goat on Burnt Branch Road, Darlington County SC



This is another goat from the same pasture as the grinning goat, it's is nice to live somewhere that offers such diverse imagery in a few mile radius, it helps with my magpie aesthetic.

"Reclining Fur" [Not Available]

I painted two....yes two paintings today! I think the daily painting is going to finally help me to loosen up my painting style.
This is my dog Gizmo. She is a remarkable dog. She was a rescue. When we got her she was so small and had tiny little feet. Her head was gigantic for her little body. The vet said that she would be a small dog, 10 lbs or so grown. Now she is about 50 lbs. We call her the wake-em -up dog, because she just loves to wake you up when the alarm goes off in the morning. She pounces on top of us covering us in licks and and dances all over us until we get up.

West Hartsville Baptist Church

Our community has so many beautiful churches with beautiful steeples. The first in the steeple series is West Hartsville Baptist Church. This is a very special church, the one my husband and I were married in and my mother in law's church. She has been very supportive with my art and I hope she likes the painting.

"Kelsey no. 1" [SOLD]

I loved this pose. Kelsey has such beautiful blue piercing eyes. The color of the blue backdrop made her blonde hair glisten.

"Derby" [SOLD]

This is a painting of our miniature daschund Derby. She is looking out the window at the cats on the porch. She hates the cats, but the cats are bigger than her and to her dismay pay her no mind.



I had a great day yesterday shopping for cool things to paint. It is funny, I used to have a terrible time making my mind up about what to paint. I have so many things planned, it is exciting. The produce section and bakery all have new meaning to me. I bought donuts and pastries, vegetables, cadbury eggs, a fancy dipped caramel apple, glassware, and cups. The possibilities are endless. My mantle is full of paintings, I have never been this prolific it feels good.

"Tulip"

This was such a fun painting. This is of our cat Tulip. She is old as the hills but she still acts like a kitten. One day my husband and I were sitting on the front porch and we saw this blur darting around the front yard. It was Tulip playing very unlike a cat of her years.
