New works for precious girls

Here are a couple of little 4x4 canvases I just finished up for two special little girls. My good friend, Jana Banana, came in town for a long weekend and brought her two adorable girls with her. I made these canvases to brighten up their

We got together this afternoon and let the girls play about. We all had so much fun watching the wittle ones play and frolic about with the horses, dogs and other farm animals. Lavender even got to sit on a pony named Button! She thought it was the greatest and immediately got scared.... funny girl.

Nevertheless, farms are fun times with little people!

Beethoven in Chicky town

I bet you guys didn't know that there is a musical genius in Chicky town, huh?!

Yep, yep, Laughfer discovered this new "toy" this afternoon and just could not get enough. She loved it!! Bang, bang, bang... tink, tink, tink... yep, a true musician right here!

Hey... she comes by it naturally, right? Perhaps she will be like her Grandad and her uncle Joshie....

Cardboard Evolution

A lovely box with my new baby's bedding arrived the other day... it was just begging to evolve... to become something greater than itself.
Laughfer and I decided it would make a nice mansion for her animals to live in... they gotta hang in style, right?? Anyways, here are a few snippets of the transformation.

I think I liked playing with the box more than Laughfer... what does that say??? i think I don't want to know... he.

A crack in the WHITE WALL

This is a terribly bad pic of a drawing that I am at work on... I feel a bit strange posting such an incomplete, very meager beginning, but nevertheless here is the fledgling.

I hope this is the beginning of the demise of the White Wall... I think my work is in a Purgatory type state... hmmmm....

will let you know what happens.... ..... .....

Before the White Wall

Here I am... ever so late in posting my last completed work before THE WHITE WALL hit. (Forgive the pic quality here. I will get a betta shot lata.)

This is a portrait of my Father-in-Law, David. He is one of the greatest men I have ever had the privilege of knowing. One of the few leaders I think I could ever follow. And for that reason, his portrait is in the "Righteous Man" series.

I am a bit disappointed that this series is so small... I think there is only one more portrait that would belong amongst these men. I guess a good man is truly hard to find... (anyone read Flannery O'Conner? )

Hopefully, this portrait will be a blessing rather than an embarrassment. I think it is probably the best in the whole series. I hope he thinks so too!
