Joyful Gathering

36” square oil on canvas

Today I painted at Baylor Hospital. I talked to LOTS of people and made some progress on a painting. This painting is the first in a series around the theme of gathering. Since covid isolation, I have longed to capture images of people being together. No masks, no separation, just together. As I talked with people at the hospital, this theme was a great conversation prompt. I loved hearing what gathering means to people, or particular types of gatherings that were most missed.

This is going to be a good project to work on! I will post progress on this painting, and others in the series. I would also love to hear your thoughts on the subject.

Busy

4” square oil

Please enjoy a celebration of pink paintings this month, in honor of breast cancer awareness. I paint for my friends and family who have fought the good fight against cancer, for their families, and for all caregivers who help along with the journey toward a healthy self (body, soul, and spirit). In my strokes of pink, are prayers of strength and healing. While painting at the hospital, I had a wonderful conversation with an oncology researcher. She works on breast cancer tumors on the lab side of things. I am so grateful for smart scientist. Today, I remember her and the lab she runs.

Expanses

Painting demo
12”x36”x2 original oil on canvas

Last night I painted a demo for the Rockwall Art League! what a great group of artists. They were so engaged in my process the painting seemed to paint itself.

Fireworks in Paris

4” square original oil

This is a good example of looking at something with a different perspective. I have never seen the Eiffel Tower in real life. I have, however, seen fireworks over many Texas lakes, lakes small enough that you can see the tree line across the water. That is what I originally painted, and because I didn’t sign it while it was wet, I tried it different orientations. I love it turned! My imagination turned the horizon into a spire – ta-da! I will post the original orientation below. Also, it is painted on arches oil paper. If there is an art person out there that explain how paper gives me the most wonderful flow of paint, and crisp brush strokes I would like to know. Why does primed canvas absorb more paint than paper???

Little Flowers

4” oil

I have been working BIG and TINY. I wish this were huge, but it is tiny, and after I painted it, I loved it each orientation.
