Wacky Bugs ~ So many buggy bugs this summer. I've seen all kinds of varieties, colors and shapes. I've even found 2 of the huge yellow garden spiders in the back yard. I was terrified of them until I did some research and found out they are harmless. They spin really cool webs! Anyways, this aceo (above) is inspired by all the buggy bugs of summertime! The garden spider (below) helped cure me of my arachnophobia. I still don't want to get too close to her though!

I painted this one for the monthly nfac contest in ebay. This is 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches in pencil and acrylic. All of the entries have to start at .99 so I hope I'll get some bids. :). The theme this month was 'Kings and Queens'. Kind of a tricky one, but I like the challenge of doing themed paintings.
Complicated! ~ Does it get more complicated to make a new post in blogger, or maybe it's just me getting older. :( Anyways, I painted two more small paintings and listed them on ebay. I love trees and nature and cats, I guess I'll keep on painting 'em! I hope everyone is doing great!
It's been a while since I've made another painting but I did paint this one for the nfac contest in ebay this month. I couldn't resist since the theme was 'trees'! :) I hope everyone is having a great spring ~ Lynette
FINISHED (almost) ~ I painted this mural in the small bedroom of my daughter and her boyfriend's house. This was my housewarming gift to them. Chris likes to hunt and he is going to fix up the room like an outdoor wonderland now. Kristie took the other spare bedroom for the computer and tanning bed. :) That's their Weimeraner (sure I misspelled that) Phantom looking through the door. I was used to painting very small, but I'm looking forward to trying more landscapes on some larger canvases now!
Hello and thanks for visiting! I've been painting and drawing for many years. I graduated from Western Kentucky University in 1984 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and I've always enjoyed creating art! I'm fascinated with trees, growing up in Kentucky and living in Virginia for over 20 years! I love the outdoors and enjoy painting it!
