Misty Eyed Adventures - SOLD


The title of the painting is the name of the song by Moya (Maire) Brennan. Btw, I do believe she is Enya's sister. This painting is a product of an art challenge using music as it's theme.

Old Town Trolley - SOLD



This was a very fun paint day.  Not only in reference to the painting of it, but the memory of the day with friends as well.  See the trolley driver dude at the wheel?  Must be making change...

Kept it loose, worked oil on panel with a dark under painting showing through in a variety of spots - especially outlining the trolley (focal point) itself.

Artiste at Luxembourg Gardens


Photo compliments of Open Window blog, Claudia Ward

Today is Carol Marine's birthday and her husband David who started Daily Paintworks suggested that instead of Carol posting her usual Art Challenge and due to her being in the midst of a workshop, (not to mention a little too much traveling - Germany and then workshop-yikes); that we post a painting of our own choosing to wish her Happy and so I did!

Happy Birthday Carol!  Hope this challenge doesn't bring down the internet from all of us artists wishes, lol...

Painting at Capistrano Mission



Before coming up with quite a few pieces of work for an upcoming exhibit at Mission San Juan Capistrano Group Show (Belles of Capistrano), I was in need of tons of photos as we were traveling back and forth from the high desert.  I had taken some previously anyway because it's my favorite mission.  One of the photos was of this plein air painter and of course, had to paint her.  I didn't want to disturb her right brain activity otherwise I would be posting her name as well.  As often as I've been there, it just never gets old...
