I finally got to my Studio to paint.. Yea I painted this background with dark colors of Blues,purples,reds and some bright yellows and some oranges. I wanted to have a flower that went with the background and the Bird of Paradise just hit the spot.. My husband is making a frame for it now.

We have just recently moved the Woodville, Texas. So far, we are both loving the country. I create art for myself. I love doing this. I am a Christian, wife, mother, retired banker, and artist. I started painting in 1976 and was hooked. I have never been bored creating a painting. The subjects are endless. I have been frustrated, but never bored, I will try all subjects, landscape, floral, seascape, still life, and portraits. I belong to several art groups
Outdoor Painters Society
Oil Painters of America
Artists of Texas
Tyler County Art League
I also teach oil painting classes each week in my studio.
When I'm not painting, I love to be with my family. My husband is my best friend and we have been married for 59 years. We travel thro this great country.
