Airport Travelers

12 x 16
This painting was a tough one. It was done from a photo Karin Jurick sends out for her Different Strokes blog. It was a challange because of the perspective of looking down on the people. Also, for some reason, I just had the hardest time getting the spotlight to be bright enough. I changed the values many times. Trial and error taught me alot in this exercize!

Geraniums in Ravelo

11 X 14
I have wanted to paint this little painting for quite awhile and I finally did it! I took this picture in Ravelo, Italy about 3 years ago. Oh, to be there again!

Summertime is a painting I did last May at a workshop at Tiger, Georgia. Our instructor was Ann Templeton. She was a wonderful artist/instructor. I would recommend going to a workshop she teaches because no matter how much you think you know, she will always teach you something new! Her experience shows in all her paintings and her love of what she is doing!

All Green

This is an 8" x 16" painting that was lots of fun. Especially the back shadows and front reflections!

The Stone Bridge

This painting is really darker than it appears, but it seems to be my only picture. I would really like to do this same painting with people in it. The water had dried up , so I just put in the pine straw.

This is a small painting I did for a wedding gift. I made the mistake of using the natural linen canvas and it takes alot not to mess it up. Also, it is sorta shiny, so it didn't photograph well.
