"TEXAS WILD"




"TEXAS WILD"
3, 11 x 14 Paintings
Acrylic on Canvas
by
Margie Whittington

Three paintings of Texas wildflowers in the spring. These paintings are a donation to
Williams Pyro Fireman's Fund for a gift to three fallen fire men's families.
The presentation of three trees to be planted in the Arboretum
of the Lady Bird Johnson Wild Flower Center in Austin, Texas will be held
at the center on September 10, 2011. The paintings will be given as a
remembrance to these families of the trees planted in honor of the three
fire men who lost their lives in the line of duty.


Williams Pyro Fireman's Fund has helped many families during the years before
and after 9/11 providing aid to fire men's families.
Della Williams, owner of Williams Pyro Inc., Fort Worth, Texas
 is the founder of this important fund.

Thanks to all who serve us in times of emergency.

KAYE FRANKLIN OIL PAINTING WORKSHOP
July 20,21,22, 2011
Lake Granbury Art Association
http://www.granburyart.org/

I thoroughly enjoyed a three day workshop with  master artist and teacher,
Kaye Franklin http://www.kfranklinstudio.com/Artist.htm
from Grahm, Texas.  She included florals and landscapes in oil and also
a floral pastel in her daily demos.  All were very informative. She gave individual
instruction as well. I also got to stay at my good friend's home who is an excellent
oil painter, Joyce Thomas http://thomasjoyce.blogspot.com/  . 
We enjoyed visiting and taking the workshop together.
Other artist friends were there, Sheri Jones http://www.sheriart.blogspot.com/ ,
 Beth Pritchard, and Diana Littlejohn and new
artists friends were made.  A great three days of painting.  Hope you enjoyed
viewing the paintings above that I completed in the workshop.
These paintings and others are on my gallery page on
Daily Paintworks with details and pricing.
