Reclining Christina

24x30 painting in progress of dancer Christina K. I did a similar painting earlier from this same photo shoot. This one is a different angle and shows more of the face. Nice arms and hands. I'll show a final later.

SC Bound

This painting has been accepted into the Artfields inaugaral show in Lake City, SC. The show and art festival runs April 19-28. See their site for information about all that's going on. There will be a "People's Choice" award so please, if you're able, go see the show and vote for someone's work that you enjoy. This painting, of dancer Chelsea S, is a favorite of mine and I'm proud to have been accepted. Gotta get it ready for shipping!

Back to Cumberland Island

From earlier reference shot on Cumberland Island, GA. It was evening and the colors were becoming subdued in the lower light. I had a good time with the change in values. Note how dark the "white" sand is. Calling this one "Evening's Palette". 16x20. May be for sale later.

"Rusty Roof" is a recent painting from some earlier reference I shot in Haralson, GA. Over the years, I've done several paintings from this area of Coweta County and have others planned. It's also a great place for sausage. This is a 16x20 on panel. $950.
