Kyndal in Grandma's Yellow Hat Watercolor Portrait

Watercolor on paper 11"X14"

Kyndal is my great niece. She got all dolled
up wearing Grandma's yellow hat and her pearls.
She has the most beautiful big, blue eyes and
long, dark lashes. What an irresistable model.

Sunflower Study - Watercolor

This is a little watercolor study I did. It is 5" X 7".
The sky was actually that clear and brilliant blue.
I love sunflowers!
I love painting them, photographing them,
picking them, looking at them, and I even like
eating their seeds! Yum!
Several years ago when I was clowning, my persona
was "Sunny". I was a sunflower clown. If I can find a photo
I will share that with you.

I guess my favorite thing about
sunflowers besides their happy color and easy to paint
shapes is the fact that they face the sun.
There are sunflower fields between here and Lubbock
and it is so fun to see the whole field with the
heads of the sunflowers turned to face the sun.
Hebrews 12:2  Fixing our eyes on Jesus,
the author and finisher of our faith.

Yellow Rose

Watercolor 5"X7"
The sweet little yellow rose is from one
of our rose bushes last spring .
Everything is so dry and dull around
here during this season. I painted it as a reminder
that spring is just around the corner.
Each season has it's purpose,
even the dry, dull times.

Red Grapes Watercolor 5"X 7"

I love grapes and I love to paint grapes.
Just about any time I paint them I think about
the children of Israel and the 10 that went
to spy out the land that God had promised them.
Numbers 13:23 Then they came to the Valley of Eshcol,
and there cut down a branch with one cluster of grapes;
they carried it between two of them on a pole.
(27)“We went to the land where you sent us.
It truly flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit...
(33)There we saw the giants; and we were like
grasshoppers in our own sight,
and so we were in their sight.”
The promises of God are Yes and Amen but
what we accomplish is often based on how
we see ourselves and how
we think others see us
How do you see yourself today?

Red, White, and Rust

Watercolor 5" X 7"

I am not sure why I am so intrigued
with rust but I am. On a girl-friends weekend to
San Angelo, we browsed the antiques shops.
In the basement of one shop, I spotted this neglected
and out of place red, white, and rusted enamelware coffee pot.
It wasn’t upstairs in a prime location.
It wasn’t displayed with the expensive china and crystal.
But, I could tell by the water lines on the inside
that this little pot had been well used and probably
had a story to tell if anyone would listen.
Not pretty, not elegant, not expensive just a
little coffee pot that had seen better days.

Send The Rain Watercolor

Watercolor 5" X 7"
We are so dry here. I woke up this morning
with the prayer, "Send the Rain".
I painted what a West Texas thunderstorm looks like.
And then during our awesome worship service
the songs were about the rain. Thank you, Lord.
This painting has been listed in my store at

God bless you all in the new year.
Isn't it amazing how one day makes you feel
like you have a clean slate, new resolve,
new committment, and a new beginning.
Every day with Jesus should make us feel that way.
