Welcome to my blog. Sit back, listen to the music (if I can ever get it to work again), experience a little visual stimulation and enjoy.

Wishful Thinking

Ahh, to be that young again!  Nice thought, but really - never again!  This is another in my series of Strong Women.  Strength in a woman is visible self-confidence; knowing who she is, what she wants and how to get it.   I love seeing that in the young women of today.  It certainly didn't exist very often when I was young -- only occasional glimpses of what was to come.  More power to ya sistas!

Old Lacy

I painted this portrait of Lacy for a friend's birthday.  She is one of her dogs in heaven.  On the day the photo what shot, she had been moved from the ranch to the house in town, and she was a happy, happy dog.  Her owner was happy, too.

Kerri at Port A

This is the painting that I did on the first day of Liz Hill's workshop.  She really looks a lot like my sweet sister.  I loved painting her and putting her in this environment.

Model 3

I took an amazing workshop this weekend from Liz Hill at Dragonfly Gallery this weekend.  This is one of a series of models and paintings from that workshop.  Liz is an amazing teacher, and has helped me take my art to another level completely.  It is difficult to find meet up groups in this area for figure drawing who don't always use nude models.  As Liz said, "what can you do with a nude?  Nothing!"

Rest a While

This gentleman was sitting on the bench in the square under one of the big pecan trees by the courthouse.  He looked so peaceful as he waited - for whom, I don't know.  He is typical of some of the folks in Georgetown.  Life is easier here, somewhat slower. I often wish for a more progressive town center - plazas, fountains, flowers, but then I'm reminded that this place has existed pretty much as it is for over 100 years.  I bet that our friends from the past rested under this tree, too.


About Me

I was married - for a really long time to the most interesting man in the world - Wayne Harmon. He is gone now, but never forgotten. We have one child, and two amazing grandchildren. I've been painting all my life, and consider myself a born teacher and a story teller.
