Here's my painting for this year's Brush with the Blues plein air event for the Blueberry Festival in Brooksville. I called it "View from City Hall" because I painted it in the parking lot there. I won Third Place! Below you can see it framed and hanging inside for the exhibit. The lighting there isn't great but you get the idea.

Here are my best plein air painting buddies after a delectable lunch at Mallie Kyla's cafe in Brooksville, FL. I'm the one in the middle. Last week we were all painting out in different locations around Brooksville for the annual Brush with the Blues Plein Air competition (except for Rhonda - at top of stairs - who was in charge of organizing the event and had to work during it ) In order starting from the top of the stairs are: Rhonda, Jana, Jenna (me), Anneke, and Phoebe. The awards were presented at the Blueberry Festival at a Sunday morning breakfast for the painters, judged by Tom Jones -the well-known watercolor artist. Anneke won First Place this year! I won Third Place! Everyone did beautiful work! I will post my painting soon.

Here's an oil painting of my daughter's cat, Morris. This cat has one of the greatest personalities of any cat I've ever known! He's friendly to everyone and especially wonderful with my almost-one-year-old granddaughter Esme! Sleepy time Morris, Oil, 16x20 " .

Blue Jay's WorldI thought I'd put up some watercolors for a change. Some are done during class demos and some during my own time, but most of them have not been named or sized or matted and so are not ready to be put on my website --
