Spray!

Spray

Cami was helping her Dad and sister wash the car, and got in on the fun by getting sprayed.  Black and white is something new for me, especially since I don’t actually use black in my paintings.  So the black came out kind of purplish, and I decided to use some yellow in the background to make this portrait pop.  This painting will be one of three “black and white” predominant pieces that will be the center of my upcoming show at the North Charleston Convention Center from 11/5 – 11/28/15.  I will be hanging 23 – 24 pieces for the show.

Bug Whisperer

Bug whispererMy great nephew is one of my favorite subjects.  He’s a very curious 6 year old, and he LOVES bugs!  His grandma took him to a butterfly garden recently and he was thrilled to meet this butterfly up close and personal.  Shortly after that, he and some of his friends devised a way to house a water spider in a special habitat that they put together.
