Women

6" x 8" oil on cradled board

Getting ready for our yearly trip to Northern Wisconsin! I know the weather won't be as warm as these women are enjoying, but I sure hope it isn't COLD! Lots of fishing, boating, hiking, and napping! I can't wait!

I couldn't resist painting these three gals. So much attitude here! And the color of the water was just up my alley!

Floating

6 x 6 oil on panel

This painting was done from another angle. You can see the water splashing up on the beach behind him.

Lunch Time

6" x 18" oil on cradled board

Finished this one up today. I really like this size board. I'll need to get more. 

There is a lot of exciting things going on right now. I've been accepted at a gallery in downtown Bloomington, IL. I'm still working out the timing on that. And I've also been accepted in a gallery in Park Forest, IL. Then, I have at least 4 other exhibitions I'm painting for right now. More information to come!

A Good Read

6 x 6 oil on panel

I had time to finish this one up today. Nothing like a good read out on the beach! I'm finishing up the 5th book of Game of Thrones myself. I've been reading this series since January and I'll miss it when I'm done. But I'll probably get more things done around here!

Mowing

8" x 8" oil on cradled board

It's been a while since I've posted because I've been sick with what started out as a horrible chest cold, that turned into a sinus infection. Ugh! I'm so glad I'm feeling better now I painted this one when I was feeling well enough during these last 3 weeks. One of my favorite subjects. I hope you like it!

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
SOLD

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.
