"Name That Beatles Tune"
acrylic on reclaimed wood and frame
4 feet by 6 feet

This large painting was conceived long before it was executed.  The frame was graciously given to me by Barb Streeter of Pop's Glass in Conway.  It sat in my barn for nearly a year before it dawned on me what to do.  Then I put out a call on Facebook for folks to list their favorite Beatles song, and I incorporated as many as I could.  I intended for there to be 14 songs, but friends have made me aware of a Beatles song called Jazz Piano, so I guess that makes 15!  Can you name them all?

Book Tree
acrylic on wood

This painting reminds me of the Thomas Jefferson quote: "I cannot live without books."  I feel the same way.  I don't read quite as much as I used to now that I paint all the time.  I read once that you can either take in creativity or put it out.  I think that explains why.  I still love to read, though.
