I was ask to do an old Woodie with the torn paper collage.  I researched it, and was surprised at the history about them! It is really interesting, that they turned into cars for surfers! You should look it up and read about them. It is spelled Woodie and Woody, but Woodie was the first spelling. I can't believe some of these old relics were really made with wood.  I always thought it was just decoration.

I plan on having a torn paper collage workshop March 28-29 in Plains. If interested please let me know as soon as possible, as I need to make plans for a building.

30 Paintings in 30 Days

Here is the whole collection. Part of the really hard part has been keeping up on the computer with the photos, resizing, posting, etc.  Hopefully, it will slow down a little! Wow! Seems odd seeing them all together.  It seems as if Red and blue are my favorite colors.  Thanks for taking this journey with me!

Day 30 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days

Nine Patch
6x6 Oil on gessobord
$100 + shipping
Wow this is the last day!! This has gone by pretty fast, but for sure a challenge.  If you are a quilter you know what a 'Nine Patch' is.  It actually is one of my favorite quilt patterns. We got one for a wedding gift, and it is so pretty! I love the ones with all  the different fabrics.

Day 29-Waiting to Hear -30 paintings in 30 days

Waiting to Hear
6x6 Oil
$100 + Shipping
I did this scene from Brownfield, TX in watercolor a few years ago. I love this scene!
I saw it one day several years ago  driving thru town and it just grabbed me, I turned around and went back for another look and a photo of it. It spoke volumes to me.  On here the sky looks a little strong or something.  I have found that taking a photo of an oil painting is not as easy as watercolors because they are shiny, and not so true to the correct color.

Day 28-Gone Fishing

Gone Fishing
6x6 Oil on gessobord
$100 + shipping
I love the old pick-ups! This one is in Lovington, NM.  For some reason, it reminded me of some of the old vehicles you see parked along the lakes in East Texas. I just pretend that there is water on the other side of the trees with lots of fish ready to be caught.

Day 27-Big Daddy

Big Daddy
6x6 Oil on gessobord
$100 + Shipping

While we were in Wyoming, we found this herd of Elk. There were about 12 females, and this one
'Big' male.  He was moving them across the road, and it was so fascinating to watch him.  He called to them several times, and they started moving. They crossed the highway, and he waited until they were all across then he crossed.  It was a beautiful sight. He never went ahead of them, he was a gentleman and let them go first.  This is Day 27! Three more, and the challenge will be over. I have enjoyed it, but it has challenged me and kept me going.  I am glad I jumped in and participated.
