It dawned on me that as many animals as I have painted I've never tried painting a kitten. I found this cute photo of two snuggling ones and knew I would use them as my models. What I wanted to capture was the softness of their fur. I also wanted them to appear so cute that the observer would want to pick them up to listen to their purring.

Card Players

I loved the pose of these two friends playing cards. Guess who has the better hand and is about to say "GIN"?

Farming Family

I guess I'm a farm girl at heart. I so enjoyed painting that last little girl on the farm, I had to do another farm theme. This time it's Mom, Dad, the three kids and their plow horse doing the work all together as a family. I think the kids are having the most fun in this scenario. It looks like hard work to me for the other three but I'm sure the fruits of their labor will be delicious corn on the cob for dinner.

Little Farm Girl

I love painting people and animals so I had it all with this subject. A little girl with her dog and her Dad plowing the field on their farm. It was lots of fun to paint!

First Haircut

In this painting I wanted to get the "look" just right on this little boy. Apprehension but not fear and his eyes had to say "I better not move a muscle". Hopefully, this is what the viewer will see and all the Mothers and Fathers who have taken their sons for a first haircut will remember the memory with a chuckle.
