Exciting News!

 I am excited to have two new works showing at the Hammond Harkins Gallery in Columbus, OH this month.  It is a lovely gallery on Main Street in Bexley, OH, and I am so thrilled to be a part of their gallery.

A few works in progress...

I have been working on a couple pieces at the same time this week.. something I don't normally do, but I have really been enjoying it and learning a lot.. which is what it is all about!
  We were at the beach for a family vacation last week and found this conk shell.  The first thing all the kids did was to put it to their ear.. Hence the name..

Sounds of Surf 60" x 48" oil on canvas

 And this is a painting that I started back when the peonies bloomed, but just now got back to it!

Inner Beauty 36" x 60" oil on canvas   

Also this week, I was delighted and honored to find out that my painting, The Station, received the Hazen/Taft award at the Ohio Sate Fair professional exhibit!  It is a great and impressive exhibit and I would encourage anyone in the area or going to the fair to see it!

Today I am headed to Mansfield Art Center to help with Art Explosion.  If you are in the area and looking for something to do, stop by!  I think it will be a great time!  Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Trying to loosen up!

This week I have been playing with loosening up with my brush stroke.  There are fine lines between loose and busy and messy and muddy.. And I have crossed them all!  Here are the results..
