Creamy, yummy, colorful, fun...too bad we can't eat it!  This is one of my many cupcake paintings that I have done.  They sell quickly, so I made sure to photograph this one and put it up on my blog.  With these paintings, I play with color.  Reds and blues in unexpected places.  Thanks for looking, now go raid the fridge!!!

This is a big one!  4 ft x 3 ft, oil on canvas.  These two old Ball jars remind me of my grandparents farm.  On the farm they had to keep things sealed...well sealed to keep the critters out!  As a child, I was always frustrated and equally fascinated with Ball jars! They were so hard to open and close with my little fingers, but usually they were filled with something yummy, so the work was worth it!

I started this painting one morning after a wonderful night filled with good wine and great friends.  It was a fun painting to create!  To do the details on the cork, I painted with a tooth pick!

Moving On

"Moving On" is a commissioned piece for a wonderful family who is moving away from Texas.
They are very excited for their next step to California, but Texas is such a friendly and lovely place to raise a family and make great friends.  24in x30in. SOLD 

The Story

Here's the story...this is for a wonderful family with 4 children, The Storys.  There are three girls and one boy.  Can you see that in the painting?  I am sure you do; 3 cups in sterling and 1 rattle...get it? ;)  This was a commission that I loved photographing and painting.  It is 18in x 18in on canvas. Oil.  SOLD.

Laid Back Big Boy

I admit, I am a Longhorn!  As a graduate of the University of Texas, I am very partial to these hearty and mellow guys.  They can withstand drought, Texas summers and cold winters too.  All the while carrying the biggest set of horns you can imagine.  A longhorn fact for you: steers have longer horns than bulls.  I know there is a scientific explanation for this, but I can't remember it!  As soon as this one hit my Facebook page at Amy Higgins Art, I got a phone call and he is SOLD.

Patience the Cow

I have switched subjects with this one!
I adore where we live in Texas.  Livestock of all kinds are within a short radius of our home.  Cows have always made me smile.  They are big and strong, but also simple and patient.  Often, the only time they rush  is when someone is rattling a bucket of grain.  They just seem content!

Keep watching, because I plan to keep going with livestock.... a longhorn is already on my easel!
