Forever Young

"Forever Young"
6" x 12" Oil on cradled panel

This fun looking car is a classic - a 1959 Ford Skyliner with a retractable hard top.  I love red cars.  Wish I had this one. 
I have been wanting to paint old cars and trucks all summer but could not find the time to paint.  I have been traveling way too much but managed to find lots of vehicles to photograph. (I now believe that NW Arkansas has more old rusted trucks than any other place in the world.)

"Something Has Come Between Us"
6" x 8"
oil on panel

This painting was a workshop challenge. We had to change every stroke in color or value from the stroke before it. I have been meaning to paint in this manner again. It was fun and loose.

Some Cute Little Studies

Carol Marine taught us do these very quick and loose studies. It is a fun lesson. I love them so much I might frame a few for my kitchen.

Finally a New Post

It has been a long time since I posted on my blog. I have been painting a lot of very small canvases. I attended a wonderful painting workshop in Texas last January with Carol Marine. I have been practicing what she taught us and teaching my art students her techniques. I will add a few of these studies and a few other things in the next few days. If anyone is interested in purchasing any of these little paintings, contact me.
