I haven't been posting as much the last couple of weeks, but don't think I've not been painting. I'm working hard getting a lot of small paintings done of my yard to use as examples for a workshop coming up the last weekend of May. I've also been working on a painting of my Mom and Dad. It's really hard to paint someone you love. Ms. Hazel told me when I was painting my Grandmother that she could tell I loved her much because I was flattering her shape. When my Mom saw the painting I'm working on of herself and my Dad...she immediately told me I didn't have my Dad "chubby" enough. Ha~! She said her's was right. toooo funny, Back to the brushes. Hope you have a great day~!
I've been aching to be on the beach. Maybe after Shelton sees this painting he'll get the hint. Truthfully, I'm equally torn between my love of the beach and the mountains. This has a lot of palette knife strokes. I love the texture gained this way. Available at Merging of the Arts in Franklin, Tn firstname.lastname@example.org

Today I've finished 3 small paintings as a proto of a larger painting I need to have complete by Friday. The final will be on 3 panels of aprox. 70" tall by 20" wide. It's an antique padded canvas screen I found about a year ago in the basement of an antique shop. I had to beg the owner to sell it to me. Can't wait to work on it now that I have this part finished and love it. I call it "My Three Angels". I'd love to paint these for you and put names or initials of your favorite angels on the necklaces. They could also be hinged together to use on a table under a lamp.
