 This portrait completed in August, finally made its way to its new home this Christmas. It was given by the grandma of these two beautiful children to her son-in-law.  It was designed to depict the casual side of Eli and Henry's visits with Nano under the shade of her Florida Magnolia.

These are just photos taken with camera phone, sorry about their quality, but think you can get an idea.

Think this may be the last painting delivered for 2011.  It is on display at Burgundy Square Restaurant on Miami Ave. It just may have found a new home too. Will let you know.

New HOME...

Melange Gallery found a new home for one of my favorite new paintings...

"Sun Setting On The Blue Moon Rising" these two elements will not align again for another 100+ years.  A favorite landmark, also illustrates how plein air, or field studies are used to work on a studio piece.  ALL these were applied to this painting, that am honored with it having a new home where I was also graciously given visiting rights to too !  Happy NEW year to all of you!   May it be an UP day.
Also, have a workshop coming up at the end of the month too: workshops
