"OBEE O - AN OSTRICH" © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"Obee O - an Ostrich"
4"x4" oil on panel
$35

Obee O - an Ostrich. Doesn't he just look like he has all the knowledge of the universe!! A strong and healthy fellow for sure, just waiting to grace you with all his wisdom if you'll just take a chance on him! Obee O is painted in oil on a 4"x4" panel. He can sit on a small easel like is shown in the display example (easel not included, but you can find them at Hobby Lobby and Michaels), OR you can frame him in your favorite 4x4 frame (keep in mind framing takes 1/2" on all sides, OR you can pick your favorite matt board color, cut in 5"x5" and then frame him in your favorite 5"x5" frame with all his sides showing.

Happy Creating!

"DARK ANNIE - AN OSTRICH IN A MOOD" ORIGINAL OIL ON PANEL © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"Dark Annie - an Ostrich in a Mood"
4"x4" oil on panel
SOLD

This girl is just in a mood for sure...aren't we all at times?  What a great gift for yourself or a friend who needs to laugh at those moody days we have!  

Well, winter has come in and reminded us of the work involved when it snows! Poor hubby is out with the snowblower...and after the LONG driveway we have three decks.  This is the price for living up here in the mountains...when we were younger it was no biggie, but as time goes on...all that shoveling gets to a person!
 no bbq's for us in the near future!

 even the birds are holed up somewhere...

 Yep, no deck time for us!


so, about 15" this time...brrr, so glad for a cozy warm inside!

HAPPY CREATING!

"TWO OF A KIND" OSTRICH FRIENDS © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"Two of a Kind" Ostrich Friends
4"x4" oil on panel
$37
Available through my ETSY shop
I really enjoyed painting this ostrich duo!  I always have fun painting ostrich's, but there are two this time, so twice the fun!  
It would be as simple as putting these girls on a small easel, or you could mount them on your favorite matte board color in 5"x5" and frame them in a 5x5 frame so all their sides show! FUN AGAIN!

HAPPY CREATING!

"LADY O - AN OSTRICH" © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"Lady O - an Ostrich"
4"x4" oil on panel

Lady O is my latest Ostrich sweetie.  I find her quite ladylike and charming!
displaying her could be as easy as a small easel!

Recently we purchased a TV for our bedroom that was smaller than the last one, so I began to search for a something that could serve as a stand to bring the TV higher in our cabinet...I found this awful dark box with a drawer and a hideous pull.  I WISH I'd remembered to take a photo of the before, but here is the after...I rather enjoy it's simplicity...and it serves it's purpose quite nicely!


FUN!

I've worked on the drawing for my Magnolia Silos I spoke about in my last post...this is a little closer to their actual shape...
Where there is a will there is a way!

HAPPY CREATING!

CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS AND A SPECIAL PROJECT © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

Jingle Ornament
at the Aar River Gallery in Westminster

I saw some ornaments similar to this SOMEWHERE...and decided to make some with my own personal flair.  I will be making several that will be for sale at the Aar River Gallery in Westminster.

I am working on a project that is something that I feel led to do!  This past year has been among the hardest for my family...there have been lots of stressful events, heartbreaking events and, well, not much fun...SO, I've watched some HGTV to try to rest my brain.  My FAVORITE show of all is Fixer Upper with Chip and Joanna Gaines.  They are so decent, and fun and have christian values...it's been an  inspiring and uplifting escape for me.  Not to mention I absolutely LOVE the way Joanna decorates!  When they bought the silos in town and began to renovate I immediately had the strongest desire to paint their silos and send them as a gift; a thank you, if you will, for what a blessing their lives and show have been this past year especially!  SO, that is exactly what I am going to do!  It's on my easel, and in between my other projects I am tackling it...Here is the beginning...It's just a quick sketch to get my angles and arcs correct...looks like I have some adjusting to do already, but I will get there!  I'm wanting them to take up most of the 18"x18" panel...a close up if you will!  Wish me luck!
I have NO IDEA what I'm going to say to them...so that I don't look like some kind of nut, HA...but, hopefully they will just take the gift of gratitude and smile! 

Tis the season, right?

HAPPY CREATING!

"SNOWMEN AND SANTAS" © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

 A little fun with 4x4's...these santa's and snowmen are ready for the AAR RIVER GALLERY in Westminster's holiday craft show beginning November 5!
I've made the santa's for years, but these snowmen are new to the mix!  I hope you can stop by and see what all is in the show!
I am still and ever in love with my grandbabies, Paxton and Gracyn.  I couldn't resist showing them off!
