These are some of the small paintings I did in Alaska to give away as Mah Jongg prizes.  The average size is about 5×6 inches.  The one of Bekah and her poodle is a bit larger.   I did that one especially for her.  She plays Mah Jongg with us, middle aged to elderly ladies, and she is very good.  She often wins, and she cares about winning.  Her poodle is her love.  I am sorry I have forgotten it’s name.  It is a female.  When I gave Bekah the picture at my last Mah Jongg before we left for the island, she took it to the window seat where we were playing and just looked at it for about 15 minutes.  It makes her look older than she is (she is only about 12) but perhaps she will grow into it.  I saw that it pleased her and I was touched.  I did some others, but I forgot to take pictures of them.

I am just learning how to post these without messing upn my whole blog.  As time passes I will practice and try to put up more of my more serious (?) work.

    Thank you all for your kind words. I also like Bekah and the fat cat the best. But they are just party prizes.

    Duchess, want to sit for me?
