Plugged In

6 x 6 oil on panel

These beach paintings are just a lot of fun to do. Loving the colors and shapes. 

My daughter, Amy McGovern, is in the "Spring Bloom Art Festival" in Bloomington, IL. It's Saturday April 18, from 10 - 5 at the InterState Center. The list of artists are impressive and I think it will be a good show. I plan to go along to help out. Should be fun!

Walk With Me

8" x 10" on cradled board

I started this painting before our move and I finally got back to it and finished it up last week. I love the pink glow in the sky and water and the sun on their skin.

Good Company

10" x 10" oil on cradled board

This is a painting I have been working on for a while. I've been collecting photos of wine glasses and people toasting hoping to do a series with this theme. There are so many ways to show people enjoying themselves. This is just another one.

Go Long

6 x 6 oil on panel

Another fun composition of people at play in the water. The water colors were so blue, green and vibrant. I'm not sure I can do them justice, but I had fun trying!

This and that...

I'm not getting much painting done today. I'm going to be babysitting all weekend, so today I'm trying to get some other things done before the kids come tomorrow morning. I did find time to do some varnishing (above). And photograph a few of my "in-progress" paintings (below).

Who's the Bad Guy?

6 x 6 oil on panel

It's been my experience that you don't even have to supply young boys with sword-like objects for them to find something with which to pretend with. But when armed with a lightsaber, fire sword and a couple shields, what you get is hours of pretense and action play.
