drawn or painted from life or photo. McCool creates your image in a charcoal,
pastel, acrylic, oil or mixed media portrait. "It has always fascinated
me how character shines in peoples faces! In a portrait, the artist's challenge
is to capture that elusive 'personality' as well as the physical attributes.",
McCool, a portrait artist for over 30 years, explains.
Formal portraits are popular
but this artist's favorites are more casual, catching the individual or group
with a certain look or expression that is somehow definitive of their nature.
A vintage family picture,
once a damaged fading memento, can become a priceless heirloom
Sitting for your portrait
is the ideal. However, travel expenses would add to the cost, not to mention
your time. A viable alternative is a portrait photo shoot (dress and pose
as you would for sitting).
An original oil or acrylic
painting of the bride or couple makes a unique, unusual, one-of-a-kind wedding
or anniversary gift!
When you capture those once
in a lifetime moments in a work of art, you turn memories into a cherished
family keepsake. Tell McCool about your
idea for a Drawing or Painting. She will produce
the image you have in mind.
McCool is also a graphic artist,
often working freelance. The logo for the Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital,
designed over 25 years ago, has stood the test of time.

We have lived in Wild Wood
Hollow N of Stephenville, TX (Timber Hills Addition ) since Christmas of '92.
Mint and I built our home with our own hands, every board, nail, rock and
bit of mortar, all the plumbing and wiring. It is still a work in progress.
We built above the flood line, as a bridge over A Walk To Remember Creek.
Our livingroom spans the creek and becomes a greenhouse on the E bank. We
lived off grid with only solar and wind power until 2009. Our place is one
of the most humble in the area but it does have some nice features. Here are
some photos of our cross creek retreat and some of our animals.
