Painting with friends

Last night a friend from Florida and a neighbor painted with me.  Sooooo much fun.  It was neat to see how all three of us paint so differently.  Thanks ladies for a fun night~!

Don't let go of me 24" x 48"

One night my husband was doing his usual thumb exercises. You girls know what I'm talkin' about. It has to do with the remote control. I went upstairs and picked up my brushes and began to paint. My precious nephew had died in a car wreck a couple of years earlier. It sent me into a tailspin of questions for God like I’d never known. Shelton knew instantly that this painting expressed the longings and my reaching for the God I have loved  all my life. We laughed as I later told him that I painted the body I also remembered. It's 24" x 48".

My Grand daughter Tina 16x20 painted on canvas with a plein air frame

This was the second painting I worked on when I returned to this medium.  It was to this day the hardest I have done.  Tomorrow I'm taking it to my son and daughter-in-law to enjoy in their new home.  I may have to paint another for myself.  I'll miss it terribly in my own home.  Tina was fishing with her Dad and her Uncle Rick who just happened to catch this shot of her.  This little girlie girl loves to fish and hang out with her Dad and Uncle.  She also loves to ride her horse Willow so having her boots beside her made the picture complete.
