Into Groups

As part of the Edmond Art Association, I've participated in my first juried art show. It has been fun. I had the honor of showing work with some experienced and very talented artists. Still, I really don't know how, but I received Honorable Mention. How cool is that?! You can see the work of about 30 artists throughout Oklahoma at the Edmond Metropolitan Library the entire month of June.

Olives Still Life, 4"x6" Oil on Linen Panel
SOLDI got these beautiful, and tasty, olives from Forward Foods in Oklahoma City. They have the most wonderful yummies. Thank you Andrea for letting me know about them.

Between breaks from painting, I've been making jewelry. This group of earrings and the enamel pieces below are some that I've been working on for A Jeweler's Art in Paseo. It was thrilling to start my torch again. Even the smell of the kiln running made my heart tingle a bit. Enameling is a blast, but the cutting and soldering metal kept me up the night before with excitement. Those of you that have been asking of my jewelry, visit Sheridan's gallery. I will be making more soon.


  1. Congratulations! Your jewelry is really pretty, too.

  2. Your new paintings are beautiful and the jewelry is gorgeous!!

Labor of Love

Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase,   Oil on 5 "x7"   Linen Panel SOLD  Private Collection in San Saba, TX First, I must say that everything I paint is because I absolutely love. I don't like to paint things that I don't find to be attractive to me for one reason or another. Sometimes it's sentimental reasons and other times it's as simple as beautiful colors or the texture. Either way, it's something that I want to capture and stare at for long periods of time. I want to study it and how it affects the environment around it, as in the case of Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase does. In that respect, I feel ALL my paintings are a labor of love.  More often than not, I have to create a painting, wipe it all down, and start all over again if something is just not working. Some never get completed and I just end up painting something totally different on that panel. Then there are some, that I just have to paint, no matter how much trouble they are giving

The Apple Tree that Could

Peonies in Glass Vase,   Oil on 5 "x7"   Linen Panel SOLD Private Collection in Lebanon, IN  Green Apple,   Oil on 6 "x6"   Linen Panel S OLD Private Collection in  NewCanaan, CT    This little painting is of an apple from an apple tree on our property. I've been babying it for about four years now. To my surprise, last year it finally gave apples. However, after a couple of days of seeing the tree with lots of apples adorning its branches, I took my daughter to see the little miracle, but ALL the apples were gone. She looked at me as though I was trying to pull her leg. This year, the tree was filled with even more apples. I hope they mature well so that I may share with my neighbor that's been admiring it.  Still Life with Chanel,   Oil on 5 "x7"   Linen Panel S OLD Private Collection in Pacifica, CA
