Watermelon Love

Watermelon salad: Balsamic vinegar pearls, feta cheese, and cold watermelon. It doesn't get any better.

One Outstanding Lime

I have gone on a fruit painting binge. I love how this little lime seems to be jumping off the canvas and begging to be added to a gin and tonic. What I really mean is, it is dang hot here in Dallas!

Evolution of some apricots

So first, my friend Edwardine brought over some apricot laden branches from her tree.  I left for Dallas soon after so I brought the branches with me. The apricots ripened beautifully. Today I made a small painting of some of the apricots, then I made Apricot Pinot Grigio jam.  As soon as the jam cooled, my husband and I had brie on crackers with apricot jam. It was delicious!

Rhinoceros Beetle

This is one of the twenty very small paintings I made of Texas insects for the Trinity River Audubon Center here in Dallas.  I'll post a few more as the days go by.

The Impeded Stream is the One That Sings

This is a plein air painting that I did of the stream that comes down from the ski valley in Taos, NM. I spent three days painting with my friend around the Taos area last August.  There is nothing like spending the day by a beautiful stream.

A Pile of Cocoa Pods

This is a commission I recently completed for the world famous Marine Cargo Insurance Agency, Rekerdres and Sons. Yes, that's my husband.  He insures cocoa traveling from all parts of the world, among other things. This painting will hang in a conference room at his office.
