"Carly" (study)

6" x 6"
oil on masonite

I am planning a large painting of my beautiful niece, Carly, but wanted to do this small study first.

(This painting was awarded Third Place in the Oil category in the Geneva Lake Art Association (GLAA) "The People's Choice Award" Exhibit. Thanks to all who voted for my painting.)

"First Flower"

Love, love, love Gustave Klimt! Tried to get the feel of his beautiful paintings.


"When We Dance"

This painting of a delightful young married couple who are friends of one of my sons, has been juried into the "Real People" show at the Old Court House Arts Center in Woodstock, Illinois, and can be viewed in person during August and September.
