"Bathing Beauty" oil, 6"x6" $120.00 framed
This bathing beauty was at the bird bath in my backyard. Cowbirds are not my favorite, but she sat there a long time and I got lots of good pictures of her. She makes a good subject. She just better leave the painted buntings alone! They have a bit of a competition over food and nests.

I painted my house the other day. No, I didn't paint the house - just a picture of it. I've said before that I love houses and had hopes of becoming an architect when I was younger. My 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Allsup, used to stay after school to look at the house plans with me that I had cut out of the Sunday paper. Wasn't that nice of her? I'll never forget it. Anyway, it became apparent that architecture might not be my thing (math: bad) so I'm happy just painting pictures of houses. No math.
