Debbie lives in Illinois and when I see a picture of this painting, I always think of her.

This was done with an air of fun and frivolity. It was just one of those afternoons that I had to break out of "my mould" and throw caution to the wind. This rooster has brought me so much fun doing something out of the norm and wondering just what the rooster thinks of his colors. Maybe he would really be strutting his stuff if he had a mirror!
This is one of the venders who worked in Matamoros, just over the bridge connecting Mexico with the United States in Southern Texas. She sold a variety of things. She had these giant paper flowers and hand crocheted works and hats and who-knows-what. The colors were daze ling. We lived in Brownsville for nearly 20 years and saw a lot of changes across the border in Mexico while we were there. It became less friendly and sometimes hostel when you didn't buy what they held out to you. I am hoping you will feel wecome if you go there now. I have been gone from there for almost 6 years now.

sizes. Love the time on the water. I had fun painting this scene. A wonderful day under the clouds. It must have brought up a memory for someone as it sold the first time I displayed it at the Foley gallery.
This was fun to do also. The old lamp was mine, the used books belonged to one friend and the ink and feather pen was another's. Of course the flowers were grabbed by the armful out of the front yard of the studio. We gave the pen a try but couldn't make anything readable with it. So glad I have ball-point ones to use.
Finally more paintings! Jeanne just got back from her cruise so...she came over and helped me get some more of my paintings on my blog. Hope you enjoy!
"Autumn Colors" is a painting with some of my favorite colors; these autumn hues are reflected in lots of my paintings.
