More and more I feel figurative work is the direction I need to go. I love plein air but to really enjoy landscapes or city scapes I need to incorporate people doing every day things in them. I am most happy when I am painting figures.This painting is 9x12 oil on hardboard.

This is my version of the weekly painting submission to Different Strokes From Different Folks Blog from Karin Jurick. I am having so much fun participating in this weekly challenge. It is always amazing how Karin can choose a simple photo of an everyday person and Interpret it into a special painting. I think the white edge is too white around the bottom of the newspaper so I will correct that later. 5x7 oil on board $110.00

I had high hopes for this painting but I couldn't please myself with the result. I will consider it a good practice painting. I had the most trouble with color temperature and actually photographing it. the painting is 8x10 oil on hardboard freshly painted $150.00

My dear friend Karin Jurick lost her sweet friend Jack. Leave it to Karin to make something so painful into something positive and including others with her generosity. Karin introduced a new blog this week Different Strokes From Different Folks where she posts a photo and invites other artists to interpret it and send the results to her to publish on the blog. The first photo is of her baby Jack who recently passed after a brave fight with his illness. Isn't this the most wonderful idea? 6x6 oil on hardboard $125.00 ( the money from the sale of this painting will be donated to our humane society here in Huntsville,Al. in memory of Jack Jurick) http://differentstrokesfromdifferentfolks.blogspot.com
