Painting In Progress...

I started this painting a couple days ago with the hopes of getting familiar with more color in a portrait.  I did this in about an hour and I had so much fun dropping in heavier amounts of paint.  I am excited to do something different!  This picture started as a portrait of my daughter Olivia and as I kept going, I sort of created an older version of her.  Her hair is darker and her face is more grown up.  I had some fun with it and allowed myself to get creative instead of painting in the lines.  I hope you enjoy this quick portrait!  Thanks for looking.

Barn Labs

'Barn Labs' is one of my favorites!  Who doesn't love sweet soft little puppy faces?  This painting was a gift to my Dad for Christmas several years ago.  He has always love Labrador Retrievers, and this turned out to be the perfect gift.  I hope to do more animals in the near future.

Portrait of Isabella

Misty Harbor

This is one of my favorite paintings I've completed.  Boats are one of my favorite things to paint.  There is something so peaceful and calming about the ocean and the vessels that sail with it.  I am going to be doing an Edition of Seascapes and Islands in the next few months.. So watch for those.. Thank you for reading.

Autumn's Serenade

I have been wanting to experiment with fall colors lately.  Probably due to the start of fall and watching as the leaves morph from green to vibrant organges, reds, and yellows.  It is really just a stunning time of the year.  The holidays are slowing approaching, and school has started.  Its always a bittersweet time of the year for me.  I just love summer and being outdoors all the time, having barbecues, going to the park with my kids.  So I admit I get a little sad when summer ends, but its also the beginning to so many things when fall arrives.  A new school year.. another Halloween with the kids.. Another Thanksgiving turkey dinner.. yum.. And Christmas!  So many things to look forward to.  And all of these things bring me an enormous amount of inspiration to paint.  I hope you enjoy 'Autumn's Serenade'.  I sure enjoyed painting it.
