Summerfall – Howdy Doody- Oil painting

December 22, 2008

summerfall1Summerfall is another of my contemporary realism oil paintings, 30″ x 36″, featuring my vintage toys and ceramics. The main figure is the Indian Princess marionette, Winterspring Summerfall, from the Howdy Doody television show. Also included is a vintage scarf, a chalk figure (the kind you used to be able to win at carnivals) and a mule from an 1800’s mechanical toy.
This painting is currently available at The Gallery at 822 Canyon Road in Santa Fe.

Cordial Cherry

December 17, 2008


This painting is 9″ x 12″, oil on masonite. I don’t know if I wanted to simply capture the beauty of the cordial cherry or if I was just looking for an excuse to buy myself a box of chocolates! Yum!

This weeks painting – Coffee and Strawberries

December 8, 2008


This is the oil painting I just finished. Coffee and Strawberries is 24″ x 18″ on canvas. The coffee pot is a 19th century family  heirloom which has been past down to me.  I chose this subject because I like painting reflections in silver.

This painting can be purchased at the Salon International exhibit

Oil painting – No Man’s Girl

December 1, 2008


This oil painting again uses vintage ceramic cowgirl pieces. ‘No Man’s Girl ‘ is oil on canvas and is 30″ x 40″. The title comes from the book cover in the background. Red is my favorite color and this painting has plenty of it!
