Hello to you and Spring! The winter days are behind us, and spring is alive and well in the Queen City. Along with the burst of life, comes busy times. And gratefully, I have a lot on my plate to share. First, below are a few of my newer pieces. If it is not a commission, you can find my work at Cotswold MarketPlace and Common Good Co. or my art studio.
"Home Grown" 11" x 14" Original Oil on Board
"Window Light" 24" x 24" Original Oil on Deep Canvas
"Love Nest" 36" x 24" Original Oil on Deep Canvas (SOLD)
"Another Time Another Place" 24" x 24" Original Oil on Canvas
Don't Forget: Mother's Day is May 8
My snowball viburnums are blooming and the peonies are sprouting. I will be painting lots of flowers as spring turns to summer. Keep an eye out for new work and that perfect painting for your mom, or your daughter if she's a mom.
A Busy Spring and Summer Ahead
It's a Big Saturday tradition.
Mark your calendars for the on campus Charlotte Country Day Art Show and Sale, April 28-30, 2022. Open to the public, CCDS puts on a fabulous art show/sale with a variety of local painters, potters, wood workers, jewelry designers and more. Excited to be a part of this again this year and hope to see you there.
Teaching a 'Painting from Life' Workshop
Painting from life is the best way to grow as an artist/oil painter.
I am excited to help Grandfather Country Club members hone their techniques, expand their skills and get inspired this June!
We will choose from multiple still-life set ups at the Art loft and I hope to inspire their artistic journeys. I will share my process, step by step freeing up student's creativity.
Burlingame Country Club Art Show
Grateful to participate in the First Annual Burlingame Country Club Art Show on Thursday, June 2 from 5-8:00 pm. Look forward to meeting the members and their guests in Sapphire, NC.
On The Road Again (thankfully)
With friends moving out west, and family already there, I am finally feeling freer to travel. Looking forward to inspiration for painting.
Speaking of family, my grandson turns one this month and Penny just barked into year two. What joy.
