Foxey

11" x 15"  watercolor  $50.00

This little Mama lives under our driveway.  She feeds her pups mice and birds and every once in a while we are lucky to see her scampering through the trees.  She doesn't stop often, so we are lucky to catch a glimpse of her.

Raggedy Bunny Dreams

20" x 15"  watercolor   $300.00 unframed

The affection of a little girl is like no other. All her dreams, and activities are protection for those she loves.  She will love, rub raw, pet, feed, wash, dress and undress her object of love and sing songs. She will play house, take to bed, show off, and make sure that this loved one is warm.  She will take him or her everywhere.  This is something I hope little girls never grow tired of, because someday some special person will want to be loved by her sweet charms.

Thinking Caps

Today I don't have any art to post, but I will soon, I promise.  I just had a small thought that you might like.  I am encouraging all of you to paint any thing with a hat.

We must put on or thinking caps because the youngsters already have   Let’s see, instead of” “thinking caps”, we can put on a “Striped Violet Chapeaux.” How’s that?  Yes, we have still got it!  Think colorful and elongated.  Think cerebral and cloudy.  Think animated and silly.  Think pastoral and serene.  Think outlines and space.  Think shrouded and mysterious.  Have fun.  Why be ordinary?  I challenge all of us to blow the world away with the art we fashion.

Maybe you would rather make something with stripes or bubbles.  Just so that it is original.  What could you put a hat onto?  How about a squirrel, a worm, a toaster, an orange, a tree stump.  Make it comical, or serious.  It doesn't matter, as long as you decided to do it yourself!

Next post it to my reveille kennedy facebook page and we can all have a vote on the best, the silliest, the most beautiful or the scariest.  Let's see, that is 4 winners.  The winners will have one pick of any 8 x 10 print of my paintings.  The contest will end on Feb. 26, exactly one month from today.

Have fun and have a great day, my creative friends

I will repost all artwork to this blog.

Krystal

15" x 14"  w/c  not for sale

Krystal is one of my beautiful granddaughters, in fact my first grandchild.  Krystal is an actress and a comedian with huge brown sparkling eyes.  I love her funny sense of humor, especially when she gently imitates me or someone else she knows.  She is bright and imaginative and has a hearty laugh. You always feel comfortable around Krystal because she cares about you and you know it.  I love her with all my heart.

Paper hats were the hit of the day at the Pioneers Museum last summer.  Children and adults designed, crumpled, banded and wore their new fabulous creations.

Gypsy

11" x 15"  watercolor   unframed  $130.00

Under the drifting clouds this shy young girl dreams of dancing.  Her feathery hair and clothing are touched with a hint of copper and she is adorned with flowers and stars and fantasy, and so am I.

Soft Smoke and Persimmon

The energy emitted from this lovely Spanish dancer and her flouncy skirts makes for a passionate painting.  
I love the smokey indigo and indian red together.  The painting is earthy and uscious.
