Wanted: "The Kid"

Baby Shower invitations are a fun way to express the personality of the parents.  This project was challenging, but I love how it turned out.

Oh Boy!

This was a super fun project--a baby shower invitation with a moustache theme!  The mother-to-be loves bright colors and moustaches, so this seemed fitting.  :{)

Halloween at the Castle

I had a great time painting this photo location backdrop for the Halloween event at Real Life Church (cute kid not included)!  It was too large to fit in my oversized stretcher bars, so I painted it on the floor of our garage.  Not recommended for those with lower back issues.  ;)

Room for Improvement

I've been working with my friend and mentor Ron Pekar again for the last few months, and I am always enriched by his knowledge. I brought in several paintings I thought were 'done', but knew he could provide insight for improvements. Of course, he did. I was pretty happy with my painting of El Matador State Beach done en plein air last summer, but Ron felt it needed more color. Of course, he was right. Now I am REALLY happy with the painting!
