I'm beginning a series of seascapes. This painting is one that has helped get me back into the "groove" of painting. It was easy enough to get the paint on the canvas without having to struggle with detail. I'm trying to loosen up... And loving the sea and it surrounding views helps to inspire.
Please join us for the opening reception of Bringing the Trinity River to Life Sept. 2, 6-8 pm. Meet the artist and view the artwork of 11 artist. The Artists have found the beauty of the Trinity River through their paintings. The exhibit will be on view through Dec 31, 2010 at the Texas Discovery Garden in Fair Park.
This is a painting from a photo that was taken about 15 years ago. It is of my husband, Kerry (Ked) and daughter, Ashley. The joy I experienced 15 years ago on that vacation to St. John, US VIrgin Islands was relived as I painted. I still look at it and remember the experience.
They say "you can't go back." But maybe you can if you are an artist.
This painting was painted after a great vacation with my long time friend and her daughters and granddaughter. Sabre (the granddaughter) loved this painting of her and has proudly hung it in her room (the best compliment ever).
