"Tribute to Renoir"  Oil  8x10
For purchase information, please contact me at:

The studio is in chaos!  Well.....sort of...  In the process of moving out of the gallery and painting daily in a working studio, it can seem to be a cyclonic mess.  On the other hand, I am able to view some of my artwork with a fresh eye, in the light of my studio once more.  
I am posting "Tribute to Renoir" after some minor changes.  This lovely black hat, with its gorgeous dark feathers, seemed to be just the right prop for a little dress-up photo session and an old-world look.

"Balancing Art & Time" Oil 8X10

This week's challenge at Dailypaintworks ( really resonated with me in terms of my art.  We all have to make choices to achieve a balance in our lives, juggling, family, career, friendships, etc.  Sometimes something tips a little out of kilter and we have to work it back into its proper place in our lives.  I don't know about you, but that happens to me more often than I care to admit!  
It happened again while painting this set-up.  Just as I was putting final tweaks on the shadows, my paint tube fell off the top!  Isn't that the way it happens sometimes....smooth sailing and then PLOP!  I figured that was my signal to sign the painting and take a coffee break...  :)

Summer is definitely here.....early June and the heat is here to stay! I have been working on the business side of art lately, so painting time has been limited. I takes some time to absorb and get it all done, but.....slow and steady..., as they say.
I am posting a painting from last year, one which is descriptive of Summertime for me. I have been seeing these sunflowers popping up in home gardens and fence lines for a few weeks now, and just wanted to share them with you again.
