"Very French"-Art Helping Children

"Very French", 8x10

I painted this last week on Earth Day (that's why it's so green!) and decided that it's quirky enough that some people would love it. For that reason, I posted it on ebay at a low starting bid of only $9.99 to attract additional bids. ALL of the proceeds for this painting will be donated back to The Children's Defense Fund, a non-profit children's advocacy group out of Washington D.C.

If you would like… Continue

Finished a painting yesterday...

"Passages of Light and Shadow", 9x12, oil on linen

I started this painting last week during the paint-out , but was unhappy with the color of the first notes so I put it aside.

I was struck by the little sliver of light that was apparent for only about 30 minutes in this side garden in downtown Venice. The house is on Venezia Park, in the historic… Continue

Capistrano in California where the sparrows also migrate in March. I was there two years ago and have been yearning to go back. Today I painted the mission… Continue

It's a week long plein air invitational event through the Venice Art Center, which culminates in a wonderful catered reception at the end of the week, and which will be on Friday, February 27th this year. Last year was a lot of fun. I painted three Venice scenes, two of which sold the night of the reception.… Continue

Trying to get back into the groove...

I have finally decided that I needed some motivation to get me to paint regularly again! Hard to believe I used to paint every single day., which is what I am supposed to do since I am a member of the Daily Painter's Gallery

. (See link below.)

So I've decided to sign up for a couple workshops at Art Center Sarasota. The first one starts Wednesday with my friend, Julie Hanson. I love Julie's classes. She's a wonderful teacher and her liberal use… Continue
