"Kendall Kayaking" 5x7 oil on panel

Another summer reverie, my niece Kendall kayaking this summer. Yes, there's a theme here. Hanging inside on a winter-like October day. Make the most of it by painting!!! Sweet memories, and feeling very productive. Nice!

"Toes in the Water 2" 5x7 oil on panel

Revisiting a favorite image from the summer. I guess this snowy (yikes!) October day has me longing for other times. Aahh, Summer in VT. You are a long way off. A fun little photo to paint. More accurate drawing makes her look more her age - amazing the difference small changes make, especially when painting children. Also, different painting size, different cropping.

"Golden Delicious Blushing" 6x6 oil on canvas

Apples are a sign of Fall. So is rain, and wind and a very dark day. How do you get a good photo of your painting when you're stuck inside with lights? Any help is much appreciated. But I'm having fun with my apples. And learning a lot about turning the form. Sharon is right. Sharon is always right.
