Reflections of Old Glory

I was lucky enough to take a still life painting class with my friend, Linnea Leeming, at the Providence Art Club.  She sets up beautiful still life arrangements and I spent 5 weeks cursing the fact that I told her I wanted to do an American flag... I thought it would be challenging, but challenging was way to nice a word! If you look close, you can see me in the reflections too.  I just finished the stars today and framing it up to deliver to Celebrations Gallery in the morning.

An Adventure in Daily Painting

Rain Rain Go Away!

After all the rain we had mid-week, picking a subject to paint was easy.  The actual painting took a bit longer.  This image was from a friend's photo of her daughter.  I loved the lighting in the photo, but the composition needed some tweaking to make a stronger painting.  I am looking forward to painting more children in this small format.  It makes a great gift for the holidays, so consider commissioning one of your child.

Enjoy your weekend!
