Last weekend my new art buddy and I traveled to the historic little town of New Bern and spent the night at this charming little Sail Inn Bed and Breakfast. Check out their link http://www.sailinn.biz/index.html

  Upon arrival we quickly scouted around for scenes that spoke to us enough to want to paint.   There were so many beautiful spots, it was not easy to decide,  but the turquoise door on one of the storefronts grabbed my attention.Painting plein air was hard work, but I look like I’m having way too much fun!ahhh……..a good night’s rest

Happy Birthday son

Happy Birthday to my son, Stevie. Stevie you’re getting old (22), but your mom is NOT!  Love this picture of Stevie in his karate class with instructor Terry Rich.  Mr. Rich has been teaching Stevie karate since last November, amazing!

Stevie’s wheelchair painting

I was cleaning in my son’s room and took a closer look at his painting he created a few years ago.  Friends assisted him when he scooted and rolled his power wheelchair over canvas that he dripped and poured acrylic paint on.  Adding texture was easy, he dropped marbles, sticks and oyster shells which dried in the thick oozing paint. Sure would love for him to paint some more, please let me know if you would like a print of Stevie’s painting, just leave me a comment or email me at kbunn@ec.rr.com
