Print of Hawksbill Reef

I ordered a print of this painting, just because I'm using a new printer and I need a copy for the show. I must say, I'm very VERY impressed!!! It got delivered to my home in less than a week. The colors are outstanding. Now, this is a Giclee, a print on CANVAS, and it comes already stretched and READY FOR FRAMING. It is 24" x 30", so that is a size that you can actually find a frame for. You don't neccessarily have to have it custom framed. For more info to order prints, scroll down to the next post. BTW, the colors are EXACTLY as shown on the next post down...
I haven't been doing a lot of painting, because of the Show coming up. I've been ordering frames and framing my pastels. I have a man making the frames for my paintings, and they are looking wonderful. Since my surgery I've had some problems and have been on complete bedrest. That just SUCKS! I'm hoping to be well enough soon to get that dang Seahorse done. There's not much left to do, but I'm not allowed to stand for any length of time. I have enough art for the show with out the Seahorse, but I'd just really like to have it there....Time will tell.....

An old painting....

Here's a painting I did YEARS ago....but the parrot on the right had it's wings clipped. When I painted it, I knew nothing about birds. Then I CAUGHT Severe Macaw. Yes, I caught him, and now I know that he was a SHE. The bird on the left is a Severe Macaw. I was at my Ex's hunting camp and my son came and got me, 'cause I'm an animal freak. She wanted my bottle of water so bad, she was so thirsty. That is how I caught her. Filled the lid up w/ water, set it in the grass and she started drinking. I had GIHUGIC leather gloves on and just grabbed her. I had her for years....then I had to move and gave her, my Ikaika, to a man that raises birds. I've talked to him since, and he says she is the meanest bird he's ever seen. Maybe I should call him and see if I can get Ikaika back.... I so do miss her and she loved ME!!:)
ANYHOW, I had painted this with the wings clipped. I've painted them UN-clipped. Much better:)
This is actually a pic I took myself at "Silver Springs"....these birds were gorgeous!!:)

I'm painting!!!!:)

Ok, I've got Tina Turner blasting and I am PAINTING!!!:)
I love the colors in this seahorse, I just am having a hard time NOT making it look too cartoonish!! I want it life like!!! Ah, I'll get it!!:)

Lonnie, my frame man, called today and he is going to help me to get all the paintings framed for the show!!! I could not be any happier than I am today!! Isn't life just ALL GOOD???!!!!! Heck yeah!!:)

I'll be going home on Saturday...

I'm just not ready to face the real world of my home. I know I will want to clean, and I will overdo it. So, I'm staying at Mom's til Saturday. I'm sure I will be more than ready to be home by then.

I did get some good news today. My best friend, Diane, well, her dad has done alot of wonderful wood working. I thought of him today when I was thinking of HOW am I going to get my paintings framed!!! I THINK he is going to help me. I know he can do a fantastic job and make everything beautiful and very professional looking for the show! I've known him since I was 11 and he has always been so positive about my art. It would be an absolute honor to have him frame my work for the show!!!

So, Lonnie, YOU HAVE TO DO IT!!!!!!!!:)
