Yellow Truck-WIP

A couple of years ago I bought this Tonka truck at a flea market. At the time I didn't know why I wanted it, just thought it was kind of cool. Well it sat out on my patio doing nothing, gathering dust and a little rust, living quite a lonely existence. Last month when we moved out of our house, somehow the truck found it's way into the back of my crowded car and found a new home in my friend's studio. Well I decided that he deserved more than I had given him up to now and I placed him on a pedestal and began to immortalize him. I began the painting a few days ago and it is on a 20 x 24 stretched canvas, I am trying to capture every detail of this lovely guy in hope that he will forgive me for my past neglect and mistreatment.

Oranges on White Dish

Oil on Panel
16 x 16

It has been a very busy time for me, we recently moved and finding time to paint has been difficult. We are staying with good friends, Dick and Korky, and have the use of a beautiful new studio space, which has given me an opportunity to get back to work.

My husband finished a new website, which I am quite excited about. Please visit the site to see collections of my works.

Another from our great evening at Preservation Hall. When we

that we sat through a second set.

This is from a trip to New Orleans in 2004 to visit my daughter who was going to school there. I had always wanted to visit Preservation Hall and I was not disappointed.
