Days of work OVER

Heading home to New York after
hiking in Blackwater Falls, W. V.,
we saw this great antique truck just
waiting patiently for us to take a
picture. I didn't see it at first - my
husband saw a glimpse of the rusty
old Ford pick up truck and knew I
would want a picture of it. At one
time it must have been used by a
service station since there was some
writing still left on the door..

Horton's Point Lighthouse

This lighthouse is located in
Southold, LI. It sits on a bluff
60ft above the L.I.Sound. Its
still an active aid to navigation
and has a little museum inside.
My friend Gene, who now lives in
Georgia, requested a painting of
this lighthouse. I enjoyed painting
this for him. A little bit of Long
Island to take back to Georgia!!

I recently switched pictures with my blogger
friend, Carol Blackburn, of one of our
grandchildren so we can practice painting
children. She painted my granddaughter,
Bianca and I painted her cute little
grandson Jacob. This is Jacob with his
"pouty" face.

I took a picture of my granddaughter
at her dance recital which inspired
this pastel painting. I struggled with
getting her to look her age. The makeup
she had on and the fact that her hair was
pulled up didn't help much either. She's
only 10 but looks 16! I like the painting
but I'm ready for your input!

Nostalgic Moment

Don't you just love the old vintage
photos that we find, and have a need
to paint? I found a photo of my cousin
Millie when she was a little girl. In the
1940's and early 50's wearing these
Navy outfits was often seen on young
girls and boys. Maybe some of you have
even worn them?

I did this oil painting of St.Mary Lake
in Glacier National Park, Montana. It
lies on the eastern side of Glacier
National Park. We couldn't believe how
beautiful this lake was. Great place to
visit with lots of hiking trails!!
