Paintings in Situ from a Collector

Free at Last (Egg)
20x20

It is always a pleasure to see my art in a client's home.  Yesterday, I was informed by UGallery that this photo was distributed to other collectors for their monthly newsletter.  Lo and behold, my painting, "Free at Last", is depicted at the top.  Looking at the other pieces on this wall, I am thrilled be included among such gorgeous works.  My day has been made.  Thank you!

Oil on Canvas Panel (Museum Grade)
6x6
SOLD

It has taken me years to correctly fry an egg without undercooking it (and having a cold, clear, watery puddle) or overcooking it into a hard boiled rubbery mess.  With determination, I have finally conquered the technique.

Portland Head Light

Oil on Canvas
16x20
Not for Sale
(Prints are available)

As a child of a US Marine, we moved frequently.  For two years, we were stationed at Brunswick Naval Air Station, Maine.  Nearby, in Cape Elizabeth, was this hauntingly beautiful lighthouse known as "Portland Head Light."  I've painted this as a gift for my mother as a reminder of our wonderful life near the sea....

Galveston Crab

Oil
30x10
SOLD

I recently returned from a trip to Galveston (4 hours away) with precious cargo: 20 pounds of live blue crabs! The entire weekend was spent picking, then feasting, then picking, then feasting, etc. I must say, the efforts (and sore fingers) were worth every morsel!

Skillet Fried Eggs

Oil on Canvas Panel
6x6
SOLD - Commissions welcome

This painting was inspired by an email inquiry.  Someone had seen a painting I did in 2009 and was interested in a print.  Alas, I didn't know how to photograph my art correctly at that time--any prints would have a low resolution.  Seven years later though, with a DSLR camera,  one of my favorite subjects, and (hopefully) and bit of improvement in my painting techniques, this painting was born and I now have a new client in Connecticut.  Thank you, Internet!

Oysters on the Half Shell - Coastal Art


Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas
20 x 20 x 1.375
Purchase Information

Here in Texas, we have delicious oysters from the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. These particular ones were from Galveston Bay. A squirt of lemon and quick dip into cocktail sauce (heavy on the horseradish) make this a welcome appetizer. Like potato chips, though, you can’t eat just one!

Prickly Pear Cacti in Bloom

Oil
20x16
Purchase Information

Like many people, I am guilty of stereotyping Texas.  I envisioned cows and cowboys, horses, tumbleweed, and cacti coexisting in a hot, dry desert climate.  Upon my first visit to the Lone Star State over twenty years ago, I realized how wrong I was!  Yes, Texas has all those stereotypes.  I didn't realize, though, that Texas has everything else as well:  beaches, rivers, forests, mountains, and yes, desert-like areas.  I also didn't realize the bounty of this vast piece of land.  Many of those spiny cacti with the occasional, gorgeous yellow blooms are prickly pears.  Despite those painful spines on their paddles, prickly pears are food!  Both the paddles and the pear-like red (sometimes yellow, sometimes green) fruit are edible and enjoyed in many cuisines--TexMex, Mexican, Latin, Spanish, AND Mediterranean--and they are delicious.  For such a "lowly" plant, what marvelous bounty and beauty it provides!

Abalone Shell

Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas
20 x 20 x 1.325
SOLD - Commissions welcome

One of the most mesmerizing of shells is the abalone. As a child, I had a large one (purchased in a beach gift shop during a family vacation in Nagshead, North Carolina). I kept my favorite pieces of jewelry in it for years. Sadly, it disappeared some time after I graduated from college (any ideas, Mom?) and I’ve always regretted not having one to paint. (If you are familiar with my work, I ADORE painting sea shells.) Recently, however, I acquired a “new” abalone shell. Look out, world—this is my first abalone painting, but it won’t be my last!
