“Rich impressionist colors tainted with a little humor”

Today I was asked to describe my art in ten words or so. The painting shared today is named “Three is Not Company”. What I like to do is make you think about what I have painted and realize there is more than goes into a painting than you might think. It was the day, it was Paris, is amazing how uncomfortable the woman on the right looked as the man in the middle was intensely interested in the woman on the left.

What do you think, is it a good description of my art?

Dewdrops are flower tears

Dewdrops are flower tears

As flowers wake up on a cold rainy morning maybe they cry looking for the sunshine. They are probably tears of joy that they get to bring like into someone’s heart for another day. Looking at the tulips in my yard, I know they have such a short life=span and I so enjoy them while they are blooming. Wish someone would invent/design or hybrid a Tulip that blooms longer.

Home is Where you Drop Your Anchor

Home is Where you Drop Your Anchor

The last few days it has been nice enough to work in my garden, one of the other things I love.

The other day my friend Derek Gundy asked the question on his Facebook page, what is your most productive time of day!

I used to be a “Morning Person”, as I have gotten older I feel the need to take my long walk when I first get up, after doing my blog, my Facebook and my Email. Maybe I was more of a a “Morning” person, when you did not have to do so many things before you could start your real day.

What is your most productive part of the day?

Don’t be the Ass in the Middle

Don't be the Ass in the Middle

My son Chadwyck took a photo of three horses crossing a creek outside of San Francisco, and I Liked it so much I decided to paint it, but the poor horse in the middle came out looking more like a donkey than the third horse and it made me think that some things do not always come out as they were intended. Maybe we all make mistakes in life, but the important thing is that we don’t become an “idiot” about our mistakes

Sometimes My Life Seems Upside Down

Sometimes My Life Seems Upside Down

I wonder some days if we paint our mood or write our mood of the day. I have noticed in my abstract paintings you can tell if I am happier or not.

Working on coming up with quotes for my work, I do notice that drawings you are drawn to evoke feelings you have at the time.

My emotion shows up in the topics I pick or the colors I use. How about you?
