My Friend's Horse

This is a painting I did for a friend.  
It is from her Facebook picture of this magnificent animal.
I was inspired & gave it to her as a gift.
Sometimes, a painting is an expression of appreciation.

Raven's Trees

(oil on canvas, 36 x 24) 

The  inspiration for trees continues.
I wanted to hang a wind chime & the raven holding the chime came as an inspiration from all the raven paintings that I've been doing lately.
Again, these are trees from the yard of my Qigong teacher.
This is a small grove of mesquite trees.

(oil on canvas, 40 x 30)

This is a gift to my wonderful Qigong teacher.
It represents a tree in her yard where we practice Qigong each week.
This wonderful practice helps to center me and keep my creativity flowing.

This is to show that even "finished" oil paintings can be changed.
(if they have not had a final varnish).
My friend wanted a "lighter" painting; so I added color to the background.
This is the finished painting & we are both happy with the results.

Thank you for viewing my paintings...namaste.

Early Spring

(12 inch Round Convexo Canvas)
No need to frame; painted sides.

The irises are from my yard earlier this year.
I was having trouble posting this and finally gave up trying to crop it & posted it today.
I really love the irises in my yard.  Sadly the blooms are now gone, but I have this painting to remind me of them.  I hope you like them too.

Thank you for viewing my paintings.
