Paramount Artists Guild
My Aunt gave me this telephone back in the 60's.  It was just black at the time.  I then painted it with enamel paints in the 60's style of the time.  A few years later I packed it away and forgot about it.  Then a couple of years ago when moving, I came across it and decided to do a painting of it.

Green Onions

This was painted using my left hand. It was an exercise to access the right side of the brain. I am right handed, so it was difficult.

2010 Paramount Art Show

I entered the Paramount Traditional Artists Guild Show again this year. The judge for the show was Michael Humphries. He also did a demo, which was great! I would love to see him paint again. What a treat. He awarded me with second place for my Garlic, and Honorable Mention for my Pomegranate. Thank You.

Palmer is a rare Black Palm Cockatoo owned by a friend of mine. What a beautiful bird. It looks as though he is saying "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful"

This was an image that my nephew wanted me to paint for his girlfriend for a Christmas present. She had taken the original photo, which later was published. I hope she liked it.

This little flower was growing outside my bedroom window in the neighbors yard. Our neighbor has had their house under construction for 3 years now. No one there. This poor flower has grown despite the neglect. It was the one and only flower in the yard. The weeds are doing fine!
