SAGAMORE CHURCH NURSERY MURALS





BED BABY ROOM

Blue Skies with White Puffy Clouds

Pink butterflies and Bluebirds







TODDLER ROOM

Monkeys Swinging from the Trees

2 Parrots sitting watching.





3 YEAR OLD ROOM

It's a Jungle Party, a Zebra, a Giraffe, a Monkey

and an Elephant with Balloons,

Oh My!


(The Jungle Party is still in progress. There is a baby tiger in the tree

and a monkey to be finished.)


The Nursery area of Sagamore Baptist Church located on

East Chase Blvd. right off I-30 is taking shape.

One more room after the Jungle room is complete is an Ocean Scene

with porpoise jumping, a sand castle, shells and star fish

and lots of Ocean Palm Trees.

My good friend Sandy is helping me with the murals.










Come back in a couple of weeks to see the finished rooms.

OPTIMIST INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION
PRESIDENTS CLUB LUNCHEON

JULY 2, 2008

GAYLORD TEXAN
GRAPEVINE, TEXAS



I was honored to be invited to the President's Club luncheon of the Optimist International Foundation to help in the unveiling of the painting I did for their 2008-2009 fundraiser. As each Optimist Club around the US and Canada donate to the Foundation, the club receives a signed and numbered print of the painting.




I gave a short speech thanking the foundation for the opportunity
of working with Judi Smith, the OIF Director, and others the last four years that I have done their painting for the fund raisers.





Here is the painting covered before

the unveiling and I am speaking

to a room of about 160+ people.














The new presidents were

introduced, one is from

Canada and the other

is from the United States.

"OBS"

A Baby's Monogram
on a Polka Dot Wall



The Monogram matches the bedding for a special baby boy.
All in blue, lavender and green stripes accented by
a green polka dot wall.



The baby's crib will go under the monogram of his initials.



A scripture over the baby's closet reads...


Sons are a heritage from the Lord
Children a reward from Him.

Psalm 127:3

" IN CONCERT "

24" x 30"

Oil on Canvas


Painted by Margie Whittington

A friend from high school which has been
forty+ years ago, asked me to do this portrait of
her when she was twelve years old at a piano recital.
The photo that the painting was done from was a black and
white with no color and some very dark areas.
She described the colors and the details of the photo and
this is what I painted.


It was a challenge and I am hoping my friend will be pleased
with the finished portrait.
Shhhh, she hasn't seen it yet. Her birthday is in August and I
think she has given up on me ever getting it finished.


A BIRTHDAY SURPRISE !
