Acrylic, 9x12, gessoboard

Onion is a painting that I recently completed.

Ben's Boots

This is a watercolor I painted earlier in the year. It was painted from life of old cowboy boots belonging to my mentor's (Helen) son, Ben. This is my first officially framed piece of art! I entered this in the Spring Show of the Avon Arts Association held at Simsbury Library.

To Thy Own Self Be True

...and with that intent, I will start blogging to promote my painting. It is the right time to get out there and show the world what I've got!

I am joining an online community of artists called Daily Paintworks. This is an opportunity to commit to painting consistently, hopefully daily. My paintings will be posted to that website and I will have a gallery on that site as well. I will also be able to sell paintings through their auction or direct-buy service. Whew. A new day!

Cheers everybody....
