Spring Hope

This is a painting that we will do on one of our next "Canvas and Corks" night at the Birmingham Community House. I will be teaching these 1 night classes,
weekly classes, and children's art camp in the summer. Thank you to the Community House for these opportunities. They are so generous in promoting the arts, and especially local artists. As coordinator of their "Artist of the Month program", I invite any local artist to contact me if you're interested in exhibiting your artwork. And check out all the other wonderful classes they have to offer!
      This painting is called "Spring Hope", and is oil 8x8 on 1 1/2 inch gallery wrapped canvas (ready to hang) $65.00 and is available through dailypaintworks or contact me. The title comes from my longing for sun. It's been a long winter. And, I want to thank everyone one who has commented or followed my blog. It really means the world to me, and always inspires me to keep painting.
Thank you!

February Exhibit!

If you're in the area, I will have an art exhibit during the month of February, 2014, at the Wooden Spoon Restaurant in Brighton, Michigan. There will be approximately 14 pieces of my work there. I understand that they have great food, too! The address is 675 West  Grand River Avenue, in Brighton. I look forward to this exhibit, and I thank local artist Peggy Kerwan for the opportunity!

At Rest

I was in the mood to do something a little larger and just have fun without  thinking too 
hard. It's amazing how we can think too hard sometimes. It usually gets me into trouble!

My friends suggested that I do some alcohol inks for the challenge. So I got them out and used them, but also used acrylic and watercolor. I guess it qualifies as mixed media! 8x10 on Yupo paper. It was fun and is in the auction starting at $50.00 on dailypaintworks.com

                                           I believe we all have guardian angels,
                                        and this is a little gift for one of mine.
                                        But it's meant for all the special people
                                     in my life who are there for me. Thank you.
