Connection Timed Out - in China Exhibit!

"Connection Timed Out" (pastel, 16x30 inches) $2500

Two wooly sheep, standing together, yet separate. As I was composing this scene from some favorite sheep photos, my computer was giving me problems, hence the composition and title idea. On a larger scale, this could represent interpersonal or even global communication issues.

This painting will be part of the 5th International Zhuhai Shutong Pastel Invitational Exhibition, at the Zhuhai Cultural Centre, Zhuhai City, PR China, November 23 - December, 2019.

New Mini Landscapes - 2x3 inches!

Mini Landscape 25 (sold)
I decided it was time for a few new little minis. I still have a ton of 5x7 mats with 2x3 openings so I picked up a few simple black frames and thew some pretty photos into my iPad and got going on these at the Carriage House Gallery last week.

I don't normally post so many paintings at once, but this will be my last post before the 50th Annual Midland Septemberfest this weekend, September 8-9, 2019, and I wanted to show them off now because they might not last (fingers crossed!)

Each one is $75, framed.

Scroll down to see them all, and a sample of one in the frame...

Frog #18

"Frog #18" (pastel, 5x5 inches) $250 framed

In July I stayed at a little house in Rockport that attracted tree frogs all over it at night, and in the morning too! They were the sweetest little things, no bigger than my thumb. I had to take several photos.

Here's one of them that I just painted. Tomorrow I'll post the other. Both will be with me at the 50th Annual Midland Septemberfest Art Fair this weekend, September 7-8, 2019. Hope to see you there!

 Thanks for watching! Please share!
