I know this seems a little "crafty" for an oil painting blog, but wanted to show you what I have been asked to paint for a donation to a fund raiser. The event is called A Feathered Affair and benefits TRAC, Trinity River Audubon Center, here in Dallas. The birdhouses, about 25 that will be stuffed with gift certificates, will be auctioned off during a reception in October.
When a friend saw a photo of what I had painted, she said in horror, "You put a cat on a birdhouse!!!" I know....what was I thinking???

Here are a couple of more views showing the painting on all four sides.

"Doctor's Office-1895"

9 x 12
oil on canvas

This is one of my entries in the plein air show at the Dallas Heritage Village. Need a doctor? This is where you would go in the late 1800"s, complete with examining room, operating room and pharmacy all in one place.
The art show will be in October at Heritage Village, I'm sure there will be some great plein air paintings in the exhibit.
