16"x20" acrylic on canvas

I cropped the reference photo for this (sent in from the community) to focus on the relationship between this charming little girl and her pony.

Father & Son on Target

"Father & Son on Target"SOLD
16"x20" acrylic on canvas
Monroe County Arts Alliance Gallery

The reference photo for this painting was submitted from our community and appealed at once to me because of the relationship between father and son that it captured.

Karl with Cats

"Karl with Cats"
24" x 30" acrylic on canvas

This casual portrait of Karl Hill was painted to join our local theater group, the Backlot Players, as they honored the memory of this larger-than-life community figure with their production of "Our Town". It presently hangs in the lobby of the Rose Theater in Forsyth, GA.

Back in the Studio!

Almost three full months of my time have gone into the local Monroe County Arts Alliance. It's been quite an experience ....rewarding, draining, educational, exasperating and fun...all at the same time! Thank you to all my web friends who have not given up on me. The next three posts are the last three paintings that I simply have not had time to photograph and record until today. All three are in the show "Paint This Town!" at the gallery of MCAA here in Forsyth, along with about 20 others, miniature to large. It hung on Sept 2 and continues through Oct 2. Three of my originals have already sold and I've taken a commission, so I the work has been worth it.
Volunteers will be taking over much of the work I've been doing, so that I can catch up on my painting. Yeah!!!
