“It’s About to Rain”

"It's About to Rain"

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.

“The Trail”

"The Trail"

My husband loves to ride his bike up the Keegan’s Bayou trail. He often reports on the flowers, birds, turtles, and other sites he enjoys on the trail.  (For a Light Box view, click on the image .)

“Trying to Wash US Away”

"Trying to Wash Us Away"

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. (For a Light Box  view, click on the image.)

“Bayou Flowers”

"Bayou Flowers"

My husband Randy likes to ride the Brays Bayou trail. He took pictures of these beautiful wild flowers that grow at least 6 feet high. This 24″ x 30″ acrylic on canvas this is about flowers, bayous, riding trails, and good health. (For a “Light Box” view, click on the image.)


“Far Away”

"Far Away"

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.)




Dreaming of fabric and dyes led me to this piece.    24″ x 30″ Acrylic on Canvas

“Love Your Neighbor”

“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)


Our new show, “Message” goes up in the Fra Angelico  Gallery on January 21. These are a few of the works
