Purchase Info

I finished this painting a few weeks ago, and it's taken me a while to get a photo of it. Now it's in the corner drying. I love the action and water in this. I just want to join these two!

I've been doing a few commissions lately. I'll post photos as soon as I can. But the reason you are not hearing from me is because I'm busy with that. It will be another 2 weeks before I'm done.

Another aerial view of the pool. The wind had picked up and there was a lot more contrast in the water. I had fun with the abstract shapes.

This is a quick painting I did on Friday. I love the body language of these kids as they anticipate jumping into the pool. The values were tricky, but I think I got close.

Well it is Spring Break! So that means I'm babysitting grandkids all week, and I'm not in my studio painting. I hope to sneak in some time to post paintings I finished last month and just finally got around to photographing.


New Studio Photos


Finally! I've been in my new studio almost a month now and I'm finally getting around to posting a few photos. My space is large enough for me to work on one end of the room, and still have quite a lot of wall space for displaying finished pieces. I share my display space with my daughter Amy McGovern who works in Copper, wire and glass beads. 

I'll be celebrating my first First Friday at Studios on Sheridan this coming Friday (4/7) from 5-9pm. I hope you will come out and visit! Beverages, Snacks and Music along with artists opening up their studios for the night. It's always lots of fun.


Studios on Sheridan is on the corner of Main St. & Sheridan Rd in the old Sunbeam Building.
