"Going Places"


6"x6"
acrylic on masonite
This is my recipe for frustration. I should have stopped at the painting you are viewing. I must have sensed bad things where coming, because I actually scanned the painting before I began with my final touches. Hours, then days later my attempt to simply polish some of the details had resulted in an almost completely new painting, not better just new. Finally I did something I never do. I gave up on this one. The commitment that I make is usually rewarded eventually with success, except on these rare occasions when the magic just doesn't happen, no matter how much time I committed to the painting. So I'm posting this earlier happier version.

5"x 7"

This is the second of two red dress paintings that I had in mind. I love the color red and the mood that the painting creates.

"Sunflowers"

5"x 7"
acrylic on masonite
I love sunflowers! I love their color. Whenever I’m feeling blue, sunflowers always brighten my day. Forget a dozen roses. These I arranged for one of my kids birthday dinners. I usually don’t need a reason to purchase them, but I do feel just a little guilty when I do.

"Sisters"

6"x 6"
acrylic on masonite
As I looked at my work I noticed that my most recent paintings were all of single figures. I thought this time I would try something different, so I focused on a painting that had two figures. I am working my way up to a crowd (not really). These two little girls were photographed at one of the many kids party‘s we attend. They stood waiting for their turn in a balloon racing game. I love the colors and the pattern in the girl’s clothing. They are what I refer to as cute and beautiful also know as “Cutiful.”

"Miss Giggles"

6"x 6"
acrylic on masonite
This has to be my all time favorite portrait, it really captures the model’s grand personality. She truly is larger than life, no inhibitions, happy, giggly, and always has a big smile on her face. She is as wild and expressive as the curls upon her head. This was really a treat to paint.
