Small paintings for spring art show

I've recently had several smaller watercolors framed, getting ready for the April art show in the Donna Nigh Gallery at the Nigh University Center at UCO, along with some real artists. I'm fortunate to know the curator Zina Gelona, and also that she named the show  "Blue Skies," right is right up my alley.

More details later, but here are four of the small ones, now hanging on the walls at home. Excuse the reflections, can't help it.

"Stormy Night" -- painted this after a stormy night looking up at the sky in our backyard, bare branches of post oaks. size, 9 x 11 framed.

"Prairie Rain" -- I love skies and the Great Plains, and this is 11 by 15
"Ice storm_ 18 by 14, inspired by last year's blizzard and our bare trees
"Winter cabin"--10 by 13, Fantasy

  1. You know Terry, I really like your art. Especially the fourth one with the winter moon hiding behind the trees.

    Does that make you a real artist?
