The Yellow Pear II Redux Again
4" x 6"

I am working on several commissioned paintings getting ready for the Holidays. A collector requested several of my previous paintings to be recreated in the 4" x 6" size. I love painting pears and this was a fun commission.

I am currently working on a cow commission. I don't paint many cows and this collector requested a black and while cow. I have painted two and will be making the final touches on the second cow tomorrow and will post pictures soon.

Next up~

I am working on a Lily pond painting, a landscape, a portrait, and more pear paintings. So much to do, so little time. Hopefully, I can make time to paint a little something new for the store.

Thanks for stopping by~

Studio Update~I will be showing my work in Charlotte!

WSOC-TV Charlotte, North Carolina

This is the hallway at WSOC-TV studios in downtown Charlotte. The television station showcases a different artist's work each month of the year. I am very honored and thrilled to fill these walls with my paintings during the month of May 2011.

So much wall space! I normally paint in a smaller format for the Internet stores, now I will be focusing on larger paintings to hang at the television studio. I will be hanging a variety of paintings from landscapes, still life, and portraits. I will post pictures of the paintings as I finish them so you can see then paintings before I take them to the television studio. I am going to try to have approximately 30 to show, wish me luck....I will be painting like crazy!

I will continue to add paintings to my stores online on a regular basis, but probably not as frequently. The small pear series (The Pear Chronicles) will continue. There will also be smaller versions of the paintings that will be included in the May show.

I have closed my eBay store for the time being and closed my shop at Design Style Guide. I am scaling back the online activity a bit, it seems I spend more time updating stores than painting. New paintings can still be purchased from my store, my website, blog, and

For now, I am working feverishly to finish six commissions. The holidays are always busy and this year is not an exception. I have to get the paintings for the Heart Gala at the first of the year started soon or they will not be finished in time. So much to do, so little time~ I love it!

Thanks for stopping by, more paintings coming soon!
