Red Birdhouse

I love watching birds and enjoy attracting them to my yard. One way to do this is to have a birdhouse ready to go. I enjoy the creativity that people have with birdhouses. When we lived in Texas we had an Alamo birdhouse that mostly attracted squirrels. This little red house is in my neighbor's yard. If I was a bird looking for a suitable house I would choose this one....I like the color!

Matisse in HisTime: Masterworks of Modernism from the Centre Pompidou, Paris


This exhibit is definitely on my "go to" list for this summer!


The exhibit is organized by the Centre Pompidou--Europe's leading museum of Modern and Contemporary Art--in collaboration with the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. Visitors to the exhibition will experience the full scope of Matisse's extraordinary career through nearly fifty of his paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints, dating from the late nineteenth century to after WWII. In addition to these masterpieces, the exhibit features fifty additional major works by many of the most celebrated artists of the twentieth century, including Picasso, Renoir, Derain, Braque, Miro, and Modigliani.

OKCMOA will be the exclusive North American venue for this exhibit, which presents, for the first time outside Europe, highlights from one of the world's preeminent collections of Modern Art.

Moody Barn

Deep Shadows is a very moody painting of a barn. What drew my attention was the geometry of the roof and the mysterious shadowed side of the building. It is a larger painting (10" x 10"), but I thought I would post it anyway. It will be available on Daily Paintworks and can be purchased through PayPal.

Vintage Legal and Another Storefront

Vintage Legal is from a group of photos my son took while on a bicycle trip in central Missouri. They ride on a converted railroad bed and the entire trail takes about a week to complete. Along the way there are camp sites and small towns with B&Bs. This painting can be purchased on DailyPaintworks through PayPal.

Here is another storefront. Back in the day, this would have been the perfect location for the local beauty shop.

Mercantile


I have painted several of these vintage storefronts. This is one of my favorites. If you get off the interstate and explore some of the small towns you will find many of these buildings still lining Main Street. Many have been converted into antique shops, while others are boarded up and forgotten. This painting is for sale on DailyPaintworks through PayPal.

Welcome and Roadside Barn

Welcome to my new art blog! 
Due to some technical glitch that I don't want to deal with right now, my original blog has vanished; therefore, I can't do any new posting. I hope you enjoy the new blog. I will use this blog to primarily showcase my smaller pieces (4 x 4, 6 x 6, 8 x 8). As time goes by, I will continue to make improvements to this blog. My other blog is still available to view at http://www.ahgart.blogspot.com.

Cradled Birch Panels
I paint on handcrafted cradled birch panels that my husband builds. He has a nifty setup in the garage....so whenever I need panels I put in my order--there is a minimal waiting period and no shipping charges!




Roadside Barn
Last summer my son took a road trip to the New England area and while driving there and back, he took a lot of photos of old barns for me. This barn is in Pennsylvania. I especially like the pitch of the roof as well as the spare quality of the northeastern barn.

Roadside Barn is for sale through PayPal
