Sandhill Crane


I made this painting for a teacher at my school, who substituted for two months. The paints didn’t work like oil paints are supposed to.  I was inspired to do sandhill cranes by the background on my art teacher’s computer.  My Mom says that this sandhill crane looks like a Pepsi bird.

Lone Cypress

Lone Cypress for blog

This is my third oil painting. I took a class, and we painted it from a photograph. The cypress tree is looked at  from one angle and the mountains from another.  My art teacher says that that is artistic license.

Second Oil Painting


This was my second oil painting. It was really fun learning how to paint water. Did you know you paint the reflection before the water? When I was painting I imagined roling down the hill and falling in the water. SPLASH!
