Butterfly (SOLD)

I'm not thrilled with this one but perhaps it will grow on me. It is from a photo that my daughter took while visiting in Maine last year. I'll have to look at it for awhile and probably do some tweaking.

Girl In A Yellow Hat - SOLD

Here's another portrait on paper. I love the feel of painting on paper. It's interesting to watch the pigments react with the paper and the amount of water you use. While some artists will use very heavy layers of paint on paper they have gessoed, I prefer to use my acrylics like watercolors when using paper. I love the soft translucent effects you get.

Jordyn (SOLD)

Here's a quick study I did tonight. I was testing some new equipment my son bought me for Christmas and this little face captured my attention. She is the granddaughter of a dear friend. It's always fun to capture children because it is just a moment in time and in a short period that face, that look and that moment is gone forever.
