This latest painting is called "Loaf Cat and Tulips". I call this cat pose the loaf, as in a loaf of bread. This is an 8"X10" stretched canvas available on Ebay. The link is at the top of this page.
This second painting is based on Vermeer's Girl with the Pearl Earring. In my version, she has a cat to love. This is available on Ebay too.
This was a custom painting for a baby shower. The couple is expecting a girl in June. They have a bulldog at home and the daddy is proud of his Irish roots. If you would like a custom painting like this, message me thru Ebay. Thank you!
I have been experimenting with painting in an impressionistic style. It is fun to try new things. The first painting is based on an old photo of my grandma in the 40's. Of course I had to guess at the colors! The second painting was a memory of a happy site when my son was attending college in Kansas City. This was the train bringing him home to the Kirkwood, Missouri station. Both of these paintings are available on Ebay by typing "folk art cris" in the search bar.
Here are my latest paintings. I am finally getting back into the swing of things after the holidays. I have been a bit obsessed with foxes lately and like to imagine them having parties in my yard at night. ha ha You can find both of these paintings on ebay; FOX PARTY and BIG YELLOW CAT .
Have a wonderful week!
I seem to forget about my blog these days, but that doesn't mean I am not still painting folk art. These are my latest paintings available on ebay. The easiest way to find my art on ebay is to type "folk art cris" in the search bar. Halloween kitties are the best subjects!

I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 19, 21, 23) are older, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
