My friend Carolyn photographed this beautiful blue grossbeak here at Lazy Lakes.  We have not seen one of these birds before.  I am hoping he will come visit my bird feeder.

Oklahoma Vineyard, oil by Margaret Aycock

This is a little 6x6 sketch that later was used to complete a larger work. It took going to France to truly appreciate the beauty of  the unique landscape of Oklahoma.  We have vineyards, fields full of flowers ( not poppies though) and one of the most diverse terrains in the United States with Mesas, Prairies, Treed Mountains,and Mountains with little vegetation, and  Hills.  We are missing the Ocean, which we actually have but it is no longer filled with water :-).  Back to the painting....The little one is sold and the larger one is on auction this week on ebay.  You can bid here

Horse Painting 27 Four in a Row by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Horse 27 Four in a Row
9 x 12 inches Oil on Canvas. SOLD
Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

Well, I was working on a large 32 x 48 inch painting and I had some leftover paint.  I was brought up not to waste things so of course I had some prepared boards, this one had pages from my old bible on it along with four pages from a western novel and it was all just 'sitting' there waiting for paint—patiently I might add.

So I brought this one over and began to work the paint, spinning the canvas and rotating it as I applied the paint.  Think it went well. As I posted on my website last night, it was only up about 30 seconds and someone bought it. BUT the good news is ... I listed several new pieces so go check them out.

Terry has been so busy building things in the backyard and I need to go out and take pictures to share.  I worked painting until near nine last night and had to prepare everything in photoshop so it was a late night for me working. Terry is creating such a gorgeous haven for us to relax in and I did spend an hour sitting outside with him as he worked building a picket fence.  He wins my heart over and over every day.

Female nude back view original charcoal figure drawing

Vine charcoal heightened with a charcoal pencil, middle values handled with a blending stick, also known as a tortillion, the most important thing in drawing is understanding the structure, then seeing abstract shapes properly, that usually comes from direct observation, the eyes need the proper training, eventually they start 'seeing'.
auction starts at 6 25pm Pacific

Clematis Floral Watercolor Painting

Clematis watercolor painting is 12 X 16 inches.    I came close to trashing this -- the jury is still out on this one, but thought I would post since I've been so long doing this one.   The difficulty lies in the light shades of the flowers.   A spring flower with snow (even if it is just a little) on the ground here in Rhode Island anyway.....
