Falling Leaves


This painting, on stretched canvas is already sold but I wanted to show it to you! You can see other paintings in my online art gallery by clicking here.

Since it is the beginning of January perhaps you are thinking of doing something new .  Maybe you are interested in art.

Why should you collect art?  I think collecting things is built into our human nature!  Our ancestors were hunter-gathers and those instincts are still with us!  The hunt for an object of beauty that attracts our attention  and then bringing it into our homes is part of our nature.

Next week I will give you a few ideas to think about if you wish to begin an art collection.



Two types of turtles are shown in these two small paintings.  Turtle One is a 5×7 oil painting on panel and is a typical land turtle.  Turtle Two is shown submerged in water and is a 6 x 6 acrylic painting.  Do you collect turtle paintings?    Maybe you should add one of these to your collection!    You can see more about these paintings and also see others by clicking here.     If you are interested in Turtle Two, the swimming turtle, click here.

Love for the Land


At only 6 x 8 inches this is a small painting!  But there is a lot to see in it.  Notice the fence posts on either side of the small building and the way the narrow path leads up to the door. This scene was inspired by my visit to Randolph County in east Arkansas around the area of Maynard, a small town.  For further information, click here.
