Beets - demo

still life

Last month I was teaching my students how to paint some veggies and this was one of the little demos that I did.  

I have been really busy with some shows that I have going on so I am behind on posting.  My reg. classes will be finishing up for this semester tomorrow.  I do have a Christmas card workshop this Friday.  The one I had this past Sunday went really well.  My students talked me into teaching a beginning drawing class for the month of January.  We usually take January off, but I thought if this is what they want....I am happy to teach them to draw.

I love the challenge of painting negative shapes in paintings like these.  You can get lost in the process.  enjoy!!

Trains, trucks, boats and train bridge

this is another area of Chicago that I like to visit and to paint.
But, soon we will be seeing snow so the city will have a new coat to wear.

the r-Crane at Night

14" x 21"

this is a crane that changes railroad bridges and railroad ties.  It is really fascinating to see this...  I hope I did it justice.  this gentleman designed this equipment and he has put his heart and soul into this project (and money).  It is truly his passion.

I am thrilled to have met him, that he likes my work and has purchased a few that I have done of this R-Crane.  Yes, he did like this one when he saw it, and he is adding it to his collection.
