Stepping Out

6 x 6 oil on cradled board

I needed to come up with a couple paintings for the Christmas window group display at the 404 Main Gallery. I was having a hard time getting inspired until I thought of these red shoes. This doesn't exactly say Christmas, but it does look like she might be going someplace special. And 'red' is very 'Christmasy'! I hope it will be acceptable! 

Happy Monday everyone!

Small Steps

6 x 6 oil on panel

Now that I have all of my paintings done for my PAG show in November. And they are all set out to dry. I'm struggling to get back into a regular schedule of painting. I've even been throwing away a few that were beyond wiping! But then I tried this little guy. This is a simple composition that I pieced together from a couple photos I took last year in Florida. I loved his purplish pink shoulder! So mainly I painted this one in order to give him a purplish pink shoulder! ha!
