This reverse painting on plexi-glass was done on a 12″ x 15″ pane. My 2 year old grand son, Wyatt inadvertently laid a smaller frame on top of a larger painting, titled Country Boy, and when I went over to take it off, I realized there was an additional painting within the original. It encompassed only a part of the original. My only option was to paint it.
Wyatt is my country boy up close and personal. I admit to having been smitten with him. The only down side is that he seems to realize it. When he leaves here and goes home, he confides all we have done together with Wyatt’s Papa to his very best Elmo stuffed animal, whom he calls Melmo, it is later reported by our daughter. There are times when these conversations last up to an hour.
Even though Wyatt loves to build snowmen, I am looking forward to taking him to the park again this summer, so he can play on the swings, slides, and other toys, not to mention playing some baseball.continue reading
A reverse painting on plexi-glass, “Walk in the Park” is an image created in oils, as are all of my paintings. My husband and I had taken our grandson to the park to play. While we were there, I also wanted to show them the trail where I used to go horseback riding as a teen-ager. There is a trail that goes through the park in our town that intersects the old riding trail. Being not yet two years old when we went, Wyatt, our grandson is still in total wonderment of all things, even small toads and pine cones, so all three of us had a stellar time while we took a walk in the park.

Talkin’ Baseball is a reverse painting on glass that depicts an 18 month old country boy and his Papa discussing strategies and statistics concerning the major leagues
The first time we took Wyatt to the town park where we live, it was truly an experience for all three of us. He seems to be drawn in more by men than women, so I have to work hard to gain his favor. However, I do love to see him and his Papa at play and talkin’ baseball.
The second time our country boy took us to the park! When it came to the baseball field, Papa found an old used up, skinless baseball, and there was no stopping us! We threw the ball, we ran after it, we watched it roll to us, and the best part? We ran the bases! I must admit, Nana was a bit exhausted, and Papa slept like a log that night. But as reported by my daughter, Wyatt woke up the following morning saying “Papa, Nana, base-ball?”
I can’t even begin to say how good that made both of us feel. My husband was unsure about taking him there a second time. He thought it might be boring for Wyatt. But at this point, I think it might become one of Wyatt’s favorite places!
This country boy in the clover is an example of my reverse painting on glass, However, I painted it on plexi- glass.
One day when our grandson, Wyatt came over to visit, my husband, Rich and I decided to take him to the park in town. I had wanted to show Rich a trail there that intersected a trial I used to ride horse back on as a teen ager. And what a beautiful day it was to take Wyatt. Along the way, I picked up a tiny toad to show it to Wyatt. I put it back, and we went a ways before Wyatt pointed out another tiny toad.
He then claimed a pine cone from the trail as his own. Rich called it the souvenir we had bought him. We rode on the slides, swung on the swings, climbed on the climbing things, and had a wonderful day in all. It made for some great photographs to paint with later on, so I still got to see and enjoy our grandson, while painting, even while waiting to play with him again the following weekend.
Some country boys were born to be a Tractor man
They are always around the machinery, working with it, using it or doing repairs. Whether it be planting or harvesting, a tractor man can be seen with a big machine. The model for this painting is none other than my grandson, Wyatt. He is a little hay seed, and loves to find out how things work! He even looks under his bouncy house looking for the reason it blows up. When the child’s car he has wont work, he gets off and immediately opens the hood to get to the battery. If something doesn’t make sense, he looks for the reason behind it.

‘Little Hayseed’ is a reverse painting on glass of my grand-son, Wyatt.. Maybe he isn’t really a little hayseed, but he does look like one in this reverse painting on glass, and he is a bit of a country boy, which is alright with his grandma!
It was a little hard not to laugh yesterday when I went over on a surprise visit. When Wyatt saw me, he started yelling :Nana, Nana!, only to run right past my out-stretched arms to my car. He was looking for his Papa. But on the other hand, he was very happy to see our Border Collie, Toby, and get a kiss from him! He has let me know repeatedly though, that I am very useful to him in the kitchen when I make “Mmmmm” for meals, and especially likes deserts! I am also the one who gets to fix problems when there are stinkers in the diaper. Lucky Nana. I have tried to remedy this affliction, bus to no avail so far.
