Merry Christmas!!

Just a little note to wish you Merry Christmas! I hope you have a safe and festive holiday. I will be back on a regular posting schedule soon!! Aside from the delicious foods we are having for our Christmas feast, from ham to turkey to lasagna, you wouldn't even believe the dessert menu...chocolate cream pie, pumpkin pie, lemon crunch pie, peanut butter chocolate pie, a variety of cheesecakes, peanut butter cookies, my mother-in-law's famous Italian cookies, pudding and homemade gingerbread cookies! I can't wait to get started!!!!

"Chocolate & Vanilla"

6" x 6", Oil on Masonite

Since time is very limited lately and will be for the next week, & I have received questions about auctions that didn't sell, I decided to re-post some over the next few days...

I plan to finish up all the little last minute things tomorrow so that I can spend the weekend cooking and baking for Christmas. I will post something else tomorrow night...

I saw this little dog while I was shopping at Jo-Ann Fabrics this week. He was so cute in his little paw print sweater - I knew I had to paint him!

"Sweet Kiss"

6" x 6", Oil on Masonite

I am a self-proclaimed junk food-a-holic, and candy is no exception! I'm not a big fan of regular Hershey Kisses, but the Cherry Cordial Creme ones are incredible!! I even throw a couple into my hot chocolate - YUM!!!

"Order Up!"

This painting is for "L"... The painting you ordered is done! Give it a few days to dry and then you can pick it up. I hope 'M' likes it'; can you keep it a secret until Christmas??

"Snow Day"


I thought I would do an outdoor scene in honor of this season's first snowfall last Monday...and the first official school cancellation. The cold temperatures didn't seem to put a damper on the day for these two; in fact they were nothing but smiles!

I've mentioned that I am working on Christmas gifts and commission work...this is one that I've owed for a long time. Unfortunately, I'm the typical artist-type: I have to be in the creative mood to get things done! I hope the recipient is happy with the outcome!!

"Boxed In"


This handsome guy made a great model, and this painting practically painted itself!
Still busy working on tons of different things; I will try to post some of them as I go along...
