"Reflections on a Dear Friend"
This plate was given to me by someone very special and I wanted to figure out a way to paint it and came up with this!
"Caboose Camping Durbing WV IV"
I guess there is no end to tweaking...but sometimes I'm just done! I think it's much better than it was....real test will be to see what WVWS has to say about it! Bring it on - it's all a great lesson and I'm hear to learn!!!
"Pickin and Grinnin in the Panhandle"
This was really fun to do from the detail of the cloth to the sheet music on Thai paper - and everything in between! Hoping it makes you wanna come sit a spell and play!
"Caboose Camping Durbin WV IV"
This one has several purposes - final class project for Laurie Humble's class; "WVWS All Member 2012 Show:, and most important - painting #6 of the 6 paintings due for submission to be considered "juried member" of WVWS. Anxious to hear Laurie's critique and tweak it one last time!
"Caboose Camping in Durbin WV II"
Yay! I got accepted into the juried show at Art at the Mill. Click here for more information about the show - just a short drive from here, and well worth the trip!
This is for Laurie Humble's class on depth and realism. I can almost guarantee she's going to say go darker and deeper....I always think I'm done and she thinks I'm far from it - and that's what makes me learn!!! Excellent teacher - she teaches on-line thru Artists Network University and she also teaches at Cheap Joe's. I highly recommend her!!!
This was another class of Lynn Ferris'. I didn't let the shadows dry well enough before placing color on the pitcher....but I like the cherries!!! Lynn is another fabulous teacher - she teaches here at the Mansion House during the summer (Hagerstown) and at The Villages (Orlando) in the winter. She's also taught at Cheap Joes - and she's published in last year AND this year's Splash Book! .
I just received notification that two of my paintings have been accepted into this awesome juried show - "11th Annual Gala Exhibition" in Elkins, WV! Show runs September 7th thru September 27th. Yay!!! :-)
Assgnment was to take photo and change it and add dramatic skies. She gave us several color options to choose from and I chose to do them all for future reference. What a fun project!!!
Today was one year anniversary celebration of this awesome gallery that I am so tickled to be a part of!!! We're open Wed-Sun Noon til 5 pm. Located in the Charles Town Visitors Center on N. Liberty.
