Taking the Shortcut

14 x 11

Another moment from The First Brush of Spring paint out week in Southern Indiana last spring. As we were cutting through a shady alley, I was taken by this scene of late afternoon sun breaking through and making patterns on the buildings. The bright red truck appeared to have a spotlight of sun on it.

Thinking it Over

oil on canvas
I've known Lennon since she was a bump and I've wanted to paint her since she got here. This baby is just as photogenic as her beautiful mom, whom I've painted several times. She's at that fun, busy stage now where she's toddling and curious about everything. Here she's seems to be taking a break in her reading to contemplate something. I love how babies are all plump spheres, rosy, heart-shaped lips, and button noses.

The Ladies Won!

I'm so happy to announce my painting "Waiting for the Show", won Best of Show at the Ventures in Creativity Juried Art Exhibit last weekend. The judge was the Ohio OPA artist, Carolyn Lewis. I liked this painting but winning this award was a complete surprise and I have to admit, pretty sweet.
