"Better Days"

8”x10”
acrylic on hardboard
This car sat abandoned in a field for years when I was growing up. My grandmother’s cows would pass by it as they grassed on grass. It had no significance to me until I took my first photography class. It has been an image that I have come back to several times as an artist.

"Summer Portrait"

8”x10”
acrylic on hardboard
I’m trying to get in all of my summer paintings before summer ends. This painting took many different turns before I considered it complete. First I had a sandy beach on the right side of the deck, and then I turned the entire deck in the foreground into sand. The only thing I was sure about in the entire process of painting was that I wanted the bright colors to really stand out in the towel.

"Clamming Around"

5"x7"
acrylic on hardboard
The end of summer is quickly approaching. I haven't painted any of my green lake paintings until last night. The kids always get a kick out of finding clams (mussels) in the lake. This was one of the biggest found this year. I really loved the shoreline tilted at an angle, it gave the painting a lot of movement.

"Bench Warmers"

“6”x6”
acrylic on hardboard

This painting is of two lovely ladies sitting at the Metropolitan Museum. I would have to meet there several times throughout one of my art history classes when I was in school. I was always more interested in people watching than the actually paintings or sculptures we were meeting to see. I imagined the two figures that I painted were regulars meeting at the museum at a certain time on a certain day just like clock work. They seemed like regulars. They were there for the culture, I was there for the credit, in my head at least.
