New Works from the Studio

"Carla's Fall Workshop"  6x12 study

My friends, Jim and Carla, brought me this great photo from Ill.
My friends brought me this great photo. They just knew it would make a great painting.
I just finished a small study and know I'm ready to work on the big'un!
The larger one is going to be 24"x 36". I always like to paint a small one to work out the composition.
Let's see what happens next!

Happy New Year,

Back in the Studio

After weeks of working on the house, it is nice to get back in the studio. Below is a painting I just started and can't wait to see how it develops.
It's fun to work on a large piece. I like getting to use my whole body in the painting.

This is a fair as I have gotten.
This is what has been keeping me out of the studio.
Sanding base boards
Doors and Trim - which I will repaint before starting the floors
YAY, ripping up linoleum!
Now to put down the floor
New look for the living room
And hall

And Kitchen
 Happy New Year!!
