PRESLEY'S NURSERY

"FOR THIS CHILD I HAVE PRAYED"
This is the scripture over the crib of a special baby girl.
Her parents have gone through
a lot and waited along time
to welcome this precious gift from God.
I had just chalked the design on the wall and asked the Mom to
OK it and she started crying. I have never had that
experience before. She was so excited about the nursury painting.
She and her husband had painted all the walls and the
stripes below the chair railing. It was so pretty even before I added
the scripture over the bed and the monogram
on the wall.




Flowers to match the valance were
added at the base of one wall.















A little white bunny with a pink nose and big blue eyes was added at the base of the wall by the window to complete the whimsical pink and green garden nursery.

The design and colors of the paintings were taken from the valance and the bedding.

Visit again soon to see what the next painting will be, either on a wall, canvas or paper!

WHIMSICAL ANGELS ah la NANCY


Today a couple of my artists friends and I got together
to paint. We painted angels the way another artist friend,
Nancy showed some of the Canvas by Canvas
group. A loose painting technique using washes of
color as a base then adding a simple figure and stamping
designs on the background. It was a fun day spent
painting, listening to good music and enjoying time
with friends.

Portrait of Three White Cats

" THE THREE BEAUTIES "
Daphnie, Felicity, Daisy
16" X 20"
Acrylic on Canvas
This painting was done for a birthday gift
to the three cat's owner.
The cats are similar in that they are white
but that is about the only similarity.
Daphnie is aloof and long haired with green eyes.
Felicity is playful and the leader with bright wide yellow eyes.
Daisy is so cute with one green eye and one blue eye.
These three beauties keep things lively
in their home.

Come back soon to see what is on the easel or wall!
