A certain friend , I won't mention any names(OK shaddy), was snooping in my profile on Facebook and noticed that I painted. She said to show her some if I would, and since I don't think she'll be coming to Okieland any time soon, here are a few.
This first painting was my first painting. I copied the idea out of a book the teacher had, in writing words, I plagiarized it. As you'll see, I like painting scenery.
The second one with the window view is my mother's favorite. It is also a plagiarized painting.
The third with the horses is all my idea. The landscape is from North Central Kansas with the rolling hills and rock fence posts. The horses is from a picture I took of my father's horses.
The wind mill is from a picture I took somewhere. I liked it because it the foreground is in shadows.
The last one could only come from my mind. It is painted on a slate shingle that was from a 1800's Texas ranch house.
All the paintings are oil on canvas except for the slate. I've also painted a couple of saws, but they aren't "in style" now.
