"Cats & Cows"

I exhibited a couple of small 6" x 6" cat oils at the Waterfowl Festival, in Easton. I could have sold each one several times. A sleeping kitty seems to work well in a square format.....enough space for the body plus a leg or a tail hanging down. On the flight home from Maryland, I was thinking of a project for December....and have decided to do a series of paintings of little cats. Dare I try to paint 12 before early December?

On second thought, Windrush Gallery in Sedona has been asking for paintings of cows. A-ha!
I will do a series of six cats and six little calves. I will post them here as I complete them.
They will be at the gallery by December 8th.

Sleep on it"

I just finished this 20 x 24 oil. I decided a couple of days ago that I needed one more large piece for the upcoming show in Maryland - so have been painting fast and furiously. I'll live with it for a day or two to decide if it really is finished.

I've been busy!




I leave in less than a week (November 11th) to exhibit my work at the Waterfowl Festival in Easton, Maryland. I think this might be my 25th year. How is that possible?

The festival is held in the pretty little town of Easton, Maryland - on the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay. It's a 1.5 hour drive from BWI (Baltimore) Airport. The entire town is involved in the festival - with exhibits in the armory, schools, even the fabulous old brick building that houses the Elks (which is where you'll find me). I usually take about 35 originals.

These are some of the little guys that are on their way, Fed-ex, to Easton. (divided up into two posts) They are all either 6" x 6" or 7" x 7".

I've been busy - continued....
