This is a small oil study of my grandson Jesse. It is painted on clear-coated linen, a surface I discovered recently. I love the way it feels and looks, especially with my color palette. Jesse is a little shy at times, and I feel this painting captures that.

This is my older grandson Gabe or Gabriel as he now likes to be called. Again, I have used my favorite linen adhered to a wood panel. Both paintings of my little guys were done "alla prima". I find working this way keeps the painting fresh and not overworked. Love those "blue eyes" !!

Indiana. Every year artists from all over come to participate in the annual New Harmony Paintout. It is held each Spring just when all the trees and flowers are beginning to show their color. Note the vibrant red tree in my landscape.
This particular painting won an award in the Paintout competition. It remains in my personal collection.

This is my first post, so I chose a painting of my daughter Nikko and my grandsons that I painted about a year ago. This painting was exhibited in the IAC show at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
It received an award and remains in my personal collection.
