my dad's paintings





I'm going to share some of my dad's paintings today because I'm helping paint my 2nd daughter's bedroom and probably don't have much time to work on anything of my own. Please leave comments for him. He started painting about a year and a half ago and I think he is doing a great job! He is totally self and book taught, never took a class, just fiddles around in his basement until he gets them 'just right'. The iris is one of my favorites. The lilies is a huge one that he painted while up for my oldest's graduation and hangs over the fireplace.








Here's the new scarf pattern I'm going to try as soon as I get a minute to sit down today. Not sure what color it will be, probably green since that is my oldest's favorite color.

WOW - he is doing a wonderful job! Very pretty pictures. I also like the quilts in the previous post - you are very generous!

I simply love the painting especially the one of the house with the long winding road in front of it. Keep up the great art work!

Your fathers paintings are absolutley terrific! I paint also but am no where near as good as he is! I love drawing but painting can be very difficult. it takes a special talent to blend those colors just right. I love his cougar! Tell him thanks for the view! Linda
