Bike Challenge

This painting is 6 X 8 oil on panel. I challenged my artist friends from my France Art Trip to all paint a photo of 3 bikes. This challenge is in the style of the different strokes photos that Karin Jurick hosts. I am still doing her challenges but made up one for my small group of artists. View our blog

Foggy Day in Catalina

This is an 8 x 10 Oil on Panel. This painting was done in a Ron Rencher workshop on Catalina Island. It was a very foggy day therefore, the values are very close together. It was a challenge but a great deal of fun.

Bozo the Clown

This is an 8 x 10 Oil on Panel. I love photos that tell me a story. This photo is significant to me because Noah's father was afraid of clowns as a child. Of course, if you ever saw the Steven King movie, "It." Clowns would take on a new persona. This photo just made me laugh so of course I had to paint it!

Different Strokes - Sushi

This is an 8 x 10 - Oil on Panel. Another Wednesday challenge from the Different Strokes From Different Folk blog (blog link on my blog list to the right). I'm not a big sushi fan, however, I do like those California rolls. Speaking of California, next week I will be painting plein air in Catalina with Ron Rencher.

Today we hung paintings at 300West 6th St. I have about 7 or 8 paintings on display. The paintings are in the elevator room of the parking garage on floor 3 - 7. This is the group I went to France with and one of our group works in this building. The paintings are great.
