Spring Fever

10" x 8" oil on board

This is the fourth painting I have done from the same reference photo. I've played with color, composition, design among other things. This might be my favorite of the four. For now, this reference is retired. Ready to tackle some new subjects!

Contact me for information about this piece.

I'm All Ears

12" x 9" oil on board

The reference for this was brought to my attention by a student who was painting from a PMP photo. I was happy to oblige when she asked me to paint it too.

14" x 14" x 1" oil on gallery wrapped canvas

I am often attracted to the expressions on faces and love to capture it in paint. I am grateful for the collectors who see and appreciate the same thing so she is off to a new home!

Rush Street

9'' x 12'' oil on board

This painting is from a photo I took in Chicago three years ago. I loved the composition of this and painting it brought back lovely memories of time spent with family.

Thought Provoking

10" x 8" oil on board

I loved the look on this child's face and wished there would have been a thought bubble over her head.  She was fun to paint.

14" x 11" oil on board

With the business of the holidays upon me, painting has taken a back seat until today. I loved the playful quality of the reference and couldn't resist.
Sometimes a girl just has to paint!

9" x 12" oil on board

I'm having fun playing around with these portraits!

p.s. It has been brought to my attention that the comment section is not always working properly. Hope to figure out how it fix that, meantime, thanks for having a look!

Portrait of a Girl II

9" x 12" oil on board

I wanted to try another portrait of this child whose face absolutely charmed me. This is a more traditional approach and probably more accurate. 
Hope you like it!
