Upcoming Exhibition

Final Friday at Gallery XII
Over the last few months I have been getting ready for my first featured artist show at Gallery XII in Wichita, Kansas. It's finally here! I hang the show tomorrow, barring catastrophe, and the opening reception is Friday. It's been quite a week. Along with getting all my ducks (and crows) in a row, I have been on standby for jury duty. I am all for doing my patriotic duty but why did it have to be this week?????? As of tonight, I am excused until the next time Uncle Sam calls, woohoo! Praying I make a good showing on Friday...

Alpine Melody

Yodel-Le-He-Hoo, 8x8, Oil Painting on Hardboard, SOLD
This guy is an older bird and he was really giving me the eye as I photographed him. I think he was warning everyone to be on the lookout! I prefer to think of him as singing so I named him "Yodel-Le-He-Hoo". Doesn't he look like he belongs in the Alps with Heidi?

Mine!, 8x8, Oil Painting on Hardboard, SOLD
My crow fetish has affected my husband! He is now on the lookout for crows and has found many of these little guys for me to photograph. He travels throughout the Wichita area while working and discovered that many crows liked to hang out at the rendering plant. It's kind of smelly but there were probably a hundred crows the morning of our safari. This little one was sitting on a piece of straw and seemed to be claiming it as her own. I have named the painting "Mine!"

Did Someone Open A Window?

I Feel A Draft, 8x8, Oil Painting on Hardboard, SOLD
This is another painting of the little guy who looks like Elvis. He turned to face the wind and his feathers just opened up. I love how ruffly he looks! This painting just screams autumn to me - the warm colors in the dried grass of the field and the lovely ebony of the crow. Hope you like!
