Artist Comments

From my “Life in Texas Series.” This painting of a prickly pear cactus was a fun one to do. It brought back memories of my childhood. I grew up in west Texas where these flowering desert plants are commonplace. One doesn’t really give much thought to them unless you have a personal encounter with one. Ouch! Some varieties have really long thorns that can really hurt if you’re not careful.

“So pretty… I love prickly pears!!!” — @kamilasart, TRUTH Social

“Cacti very likely represent the thorns and thistles that man must reap after his fall. I believe they may also represent refreshment and survival in the most difficult of situations. Humans and animals often find refreshment and water within cacti. It isn’t ideal, but many have survived in the most dire of circumstances. God be with you all. May we fully experience the refreshment of God in this age and the age to come.” — @ArtMusic_only, Gab

Artist Comments

The painting of a young girl in a red dress was enjoyable to create because I used a model who was somewhat familiar to me. She’s the granddaughter of a high school friend. My friend gave me permission to use a photo of her granddaughter as a reference for this artwork.

For the most part, the painting reflects the reference photo, but I introduced lily pads, koi fish, and cattails. These additions were made to enhance the composition’s appeal and to enrich the narrative depicted by the painting.

Artist Comments

This painting is of a vintage Ford V8, the same type of car that helped make “Bonnie and Clyde” famous in the early 1930s. Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were notorious fugitives who traveled throughout the central states of North America with their gang during the Great Depression, robbing and murdering wherever they went. The couple’s crime spree ended in their car when they were ambushed by Texas lawmen at a roadblock and then shot to death when 100 armor-piercing bullets riddled the vehicle. Bonnie and Clyde were buried in separate cemeteries in Dallas, TX. Clyde’s gravestone reads, “Gone but not forgotten.”

Today the actual bullet-riddled death car driven by the infamous couple is on display at Whiskey Pete’s Resort and Casino in Primm, Nevada. There is no admission charge to see the exhibit. For more information about the actual car, Bonnie and Clyde met their demise in, visit Roads & Rides. See additional information at Roadside America.

Artist Comments

It’s been a long, scorching summer, with temperatures often exceeding 100 degrees. Staying indoors where the A/C is running is the best way to beat the heat. However, sometimes I just had to get outside for a while and usually I could be found in the shade of the large tree next to our house. What do I notice when glancing up while standing in that shade? I saw branches stretching skyward filled with green leaves and the sky peaking between them.

A Favorite Poem

Trees
by Joyce Kilmer 1886 – 1918

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

This poem is in the public domain.

Artist Comments

I love all flowers; however, the sunflower is one of my favorites. I love the bright sunshine-yellow petals and huge blossoms that resemble the sun. Most sunflower paintings are composed of the front of the blossom. However, the backsides of some flowers are just as beautiful, and the sunflower is certainly one.

About Sunflowers

    • The sunflower is a plant that is native to North America. Later it was introduced to Mexico and Peru. They can grow up to 6 feet tall and prefer dry, sunny places where their roots can dig deep into the soil.
    • When the plant is in the bud stage, it will face the sun following its movement across the sky from horizon to horizon. This movement allows it to get the maximum amount of the sun’s rays. After the flower has fully opened into the radiance of yellow petals, it will face only east. No one knows why it does this. One theory is it is possibly a defensive response to prevent the sun from scalding the seed pod during hot summer days.
    • The sunflower is often equated as a symbol of spiritual faith, worship, adoration, loyalty, and longevity, perhaps because it always seeks the “Light.”

Read more about the Life in Texas Series here.

Artist Comments

This oil painting is part of a series of paintings about what life is like in the great state of Texas. Round hay bales are one of the most iconic images of rural America. These farm-fresh bales represent the hard work and dedication required to provide for our country.

Cattle ranchers abound here in east Texas, and since cattle and other farm animals need food, we also have a lot of hay farmers. Everywhere you go, if you don’t see cattle or horses grazing in a large pasture, you’ll most likely see hay growing there, or you’ll see hay that has been harvested and baled.

Hay farmers harvest their hay using equipment called balers. Balers can bale (package) hay in various ways — small rectangle bales, large square or rectangular bales, or large round bales. The large round bales can weigh anywhere from 800 to over 1,500 pounds! When they are that heavy, they have to be moved around with hay forks attached to tractors.

Many cattlemen prefer the round bales instead of small rectangle bales as they are less labor-intensive to store and transfer and easier to feed to their cattle. They place these large round bales inside hay rings so their cattle and horses can graze on them for days. However, small farms and ranches may still use the smaller rectangle hay bales since they have fewer heads of cattle to feed.

Artist Comments

“Gone surfing” is a simple yet evocative phrase that captures the essence of escaping to the waves. It conjures images of sun-kissed beaches, saltwater spray, and the thrill of riding a board across the ocean’s surface. Whether you’re a seasoned surfer or a daydreamer, those two words encapsulate the freedom and adventure that await in the vast blue expanse.

When I was a young girl growing up in Texas, my family did not live anywhere near the coast. I’d watch reruns of TV shows and movies starring Frankie Avalon, Annette Funicello, and other teen idols who surfed the waves, and I would daydream about the thrill of surfing myself. Had we lived near the beach, I might have been the teenage girl portrayed in this painting. Those days have passed, and I never learned to surf, but if I had…

Artist Comments

In the summer of 1999, my husband Robert and I navigated his 36-foot sailboat along the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) from Florida to Virginia. Robert, a military serviceman, was transferring from Naval Air Station Jacksonville to Naval Station Norfolk. The journey presented us with many fascinating sights along the waterway, offering ample chances to capture photographs for my future paintings. “Along The ICW,” depicting a stranded shrimp boat, was inspired by a photo I snapped on that voyage.

About The ICW

The Intracoastal Waterway is a 3,000-mile waterway network comprising inland rivers, channels, and canals along the eastern and southeastern coasts of the United States. It is split into the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. The waterway includes both man-made canals and natural water bodies like inlets, saltwater rivers, bays, and sounds.

The ICW stretches from Boston, MA, down the Atlantic Seaboard, around Florida’s southern tip, and along the Gulf Coast to Brownsville, TX. Its main function is to offer a secure and navigable route for light commercial and personal pleasure vessels, providing a safer alternative to the perils of open sea travel.
