Taking a break from the painting table to say hello. It’s that season again, and I’m painting some new pieces for a gallery event next month in OKC. I wanted to show you my bluegrass family band painting, shown above; the mama plays the autoharp, and the girls play the fiddle and mandolin. The little girls were inspired by photos of my granny as a little girl, growing up in the Ozarks in the 30s and 40s. She was a cutie!
I’m also working on a mother and child piece that will be a wintery scene. Its near finished now, but this is a photo of it with just a bit painted in. These paintings look so strange, with floating figures and blocks of dark space before they’re completed. I thought you might like to see.
Back to work!
