Barn Cat

"BARN CAT" An Iowa Barn cat perched on a snow covered hay loft somewhere between being the sentry and arising after a long nap and a tasty mouse. I enjoyed the look of the snow and white cat together. Almost mystical!

landscape...could be serenity

This pastel landscape I began last year while visiting in-laws. My mother in law is a fabulous artist, great with pastels and a super teacher. I put some finishing touches last night then framed.

Cade, my cowboy friend! I am trying to draw more at lunch time at a minumum and had this picture of Cade. I think it'll make a good water color painting.

This is my son Matt and a Stud/paint horse he had that wouldn't ever run for him...probably because he named him Tuwaca...
