The Supporting Cast.....oil painting

12x24.....oil on canvas.......SOLD

The usual cast of characters for any good meal here at our house.  This painting was in the "lost file" that never got published so you are seeing it now for the first time, even though it has already been sold.  Commisions for "similar but different" paintings are most definitely a possibility.

Three Amigos....oil painting

12x24........oil on canvas.......SOLD

This is one of my paintings that was supposed to be published and got left in the bin as a "draft" without my knowledge.  Although this particular painting has been sold, I do have more paint and more canvases.  I have had great success lately doing commissions featuring a person's own favorite brands of wine.  So if you are interested, let me know.
Here are the comments as I wrote them originally:
I love it when I paint glass and it really comes out looking like you are seeing through it.  And if anyone is familiar with the Ferrari-Carano lable...well, I think this painting pretty much captured the real thing.  I'm happy with this one.

Workshop Announcement...


The time has come to announce my first workshop!  When I was in Fairhope this past fall, the fine folks at the Eastern Shore Art Center spoke with me about doing a workshop.  Plans have been in the works since then and now that things are final I can direct you to their web page where you can view the details:
The class will be a two-day workshop held on April 12 and 13, 2012 at the Eastern Shore Art Center in Fairhope, AL.  Melinda Hicks (251-928-2288 X107) is the contact person and she can answer your questions.  You can sign up online (look at the top for Classes and Workshops) or through Melinda.

You may be able to tell by the paintings above what the focus of the class will be.  We will deal mainly with ins and outs of my style of palette knife painting and how to create your own masterpiece with this technique.  The class is open to painters of all levels. 

Release the artist inside of you!  It is my firm belief that everyone has more talent than they give themselves credit for.  Relax in this no-pressure environment and just see what might happen!

Hope to see you there!

Friday Jan, 20, 2012...This is and addendum to the workshop announcement...It has come to my attention that the workshop info will not appear on the site until sometime later today.  So starting Saturday, Jan. 21, it should be there for sure.  Sorry for the change in info.
