"For No Reason, They Began to Dance" Small Naive Folk Painting

An odd shaped canvas 10.5 inches by 6.5. And I came up with this image.

I don't know where they came from, but the dancers make me smile. 

She probably has something cooking on the stove, too.

But it doesn't matter. Dancing comes first...

It Seems I've Got the Painting Bug Again

Once the urge hits, you can't stop it. I'm really painting again. Here are two of my latest, and there will be more. It's a funny old thing, the creativity virus.

16 x 20 inches

13.5 x 17 inches

(Squeakie is going to be so pleased with me.) 

Talk soon.

"Escape" Vintage Hot Air Balloon in the Night Sky Painting

So pleased to have another commission finished, that I quite forgot that I have a new painting in addition to the custom picture.

I haven't featured any wild skies for a long time, and had the urge. And night skies are wonderful. I'll probably do some more.

Until next time...

"Betsy's Quilt Sale" Latest Painting

This was a commission from Kentucky, completed yesterday. The nice thing about custom orders is that for a little while I get to "travel" to the client's world, via their special requests, and through my own research into their neighborhood.

I've become quite familiar with many towns in many states through commissions. Not that you'll see it all in a painting, but I need the "feel" of the place, local sports teams, restaurants, streets. It's fun for me, and apparently the client just loves it. Hope it's not too long before I get another order because I really enjoy doing them. So nice when the client says "Perfect!"

Below are two others with the same theme. 

Well, the same, but different...
