Rudy, Oil Painting by Linda McCoy

I found Rudy at an estate sale. He struck a familiar chord with me so I brought him home and put him on the "I am going to paint this someday" shelf. So here he is, I painted him as he is, a little worn with chipped paint on his little face.
He is only 4"X4"  Collected

Pearanormal, Oil Painting by Linda McCoy

This hand blown glass pumpkin was given to me by my daughter. When I set it up with the pears in the sunlight the reflections and lights were bouncing around all over the place. So much fun to paint! The pears are from our tree, these two managed to survive the bees, wasps and those little stinker squirrels.
I text my brother regularily to name my paintings. I love the name he came up with for this one.
8"X8" Oil on panel
I think the pumpkin is the work of Shannon Jane Morgan, her website is for purchase information. Copyright 2011

California Dreamin' Watercolor Painting by Linda McCoy

I love painting Hydrangeas. Mostly abstract shapes of light and color. This one is in watercolor, and a very different palette of colors than I usually use.
There is a time in the midwest when the autumn leaves have fallen, but before the first snow that is so gray, cold and damp. It's this time of year that I wish I was in the bright California sunshine with some of the sweetest people I know. :)

Aidan and Lucy, Oil Painting by Linda McCoy

This is my little buddy Aidan and his very old kitty named Lucy. Wherever there is a patch of sunshine you will find her. This day Aidan was just sitting in the sun with her, she was content to be pet while he was dreaming of Power Rangers. Lucy is a rescue kitty, she was the runt of the litter, a sad little thing so home she came.  Aidan helps to take good care of her.  Copyright 2011
