My husband Randy always said that the trees told us sometimes when it is about to rain. He always said he heard when he was a child that we could tell because the tree leaves would turn upside down. This 36″ x 24″ acrylic on canvas is about trees, leaves, stories, childhood, and a man who loves me. (For a better view, click on the image below to open it in Light Box.

Hurricane Harvey took its toll on many friends and neighbors. It will take months to clean up what in some places looks like a veritable war zone. The flooding reminded me of a line from Randy Newman’s “Louisiana.” This 24″ x 30″ acrylic on canvas this is about rising tides, dam releases, and hoping to be spared the devastation of floods.

I took a bit of a break from painting. We did some traveling to visit family in East and West Tennessee. We traveled over 1900 miles and saw some of the prettiest mountains in the country as we traveled through the Cumberland Plateau. This 24″ x 30″ acrylic on canvas this is about vacations and day dreams. (For a Light Box view, click on the image.)

“Love Your Neighbor” is one of my husband’s favorite sayings he tries to incorporate into his work, as in, “Oh, one more thing. Don’t forget to love your neighbor; you’ll be glad you did.”
This latest work is a twist on a previous piece – “Cool Breeze.” So, be cool, and don’t forget to love your neighbor. (Acrylic on 24″ x 30″ canvas)
