This is an antique figurine that a friend recently acquired. I think
this little Bo Peep has definitely lost her sheep or at least I have
not seen them. I thought she was a very fancy little gal."

oil on masonite - 6"x7"
still life antique toy

"This was a fun piece to do with its bright colors and shiny metal.
I used to collect wind-ups and the metal ones were always my favorites.
This one has a lot of action. The tail moves back & forward, the
ears go up & down and the feet move as the ball rolls forward."

oil on masonite - 4"x6"
still life antique

"Today I decided on an old electrical insulator. I found this
in the basement of my old studio building that was over 100
years old. I am sure it must have come from one of the old
poles on the street. I love how the light reflects through
the old blue glass and show its imperfections."

in my kitchen that I had to paint it. After it was

in Greece. It must be the color scheme."

still life antique

"This rare old pin cushion belongs to a friend of mine
who is a scottie dog collector. I thought this was an
unusual item and had to do a painting of it. I
liked the difference of the textures; the satin cushion,
stitching around the edges and the ceramic dogs."
