18 x 24 oil on linen
Tried something different for me - snow and landscape! I was attracted to all the warm colors in the snow. I haven't posted much to my blog because of difficulties with downloading photos of my painting. My computer is not picking up photos I take from my iPhone. This was a fluke that it worked today.

16 x 20 oil on canvas
I was able to use my desktop today - just a fluke I'm sure. It's down more than it is up these days!!!??? This is a painting of mine that was chosen for the Cedars Juried Art Show this fall. I just love doing my figurative and am thrilled when others appreciate them too. Most people gravitate toward still life and landscape paintings which I just don't really like to do very much. I'm beginning to get back into my papier mache figures that I did many years ago but that I also enjoy very much.
If I'm successful and my computer works, I'll post some. I want our people in the Heartworks program at Stewpot to be able to make them but I need to work out a few kinks beforehand otherwise it gets REAL messy! Stewpot is a faith based community service organization that benefits the homeless and disadvantaged people in the Jackson area. We do art projects with them each Tuesday and it is so enriching to my life and so many others. I've met some wonderful, loving people I might have never known and consider them my friends.

I am unable to post to my blog because my desktop has decided to go on the blink and I cannot post from my iPhone because my photos aren't available for blogger???? I have about 14,000 photos on my phone but they are not pulling up into blogger. To see my work go to my Instagram page under wandamlowery.

12 x 16 oil on linen
The reference photo for this painting was provided by my Instagram friend, Jose. He is a wonderful photographer and the minute I saw this image, I knew I wanted to paint it. I loved the pose as well as the pipe and red scarf. I fluctuate between painting realistically and abstractly--it's sort of fun to do that for me!

9 x 12 oil on canvas panel
The light on her hair attracted me to this one. I played with it a good bit, editing and adding, trying to stay loose. It was painted on top of another painting from long ago, my most satisfying type of painting--seeing something new emerge within another scene!

7 1/2 x 12
oil on linen
I painted this from a photo a friend took of a little girl at a garage sale. I can't resist a good figurative snapshot and tried to keep this one real loose. There wasn't a lot of contrast in the photo (cloudy day) but enough to pull out a few features.
