I've been laid low by a nasty cold this week, and still have Christmas commissions to finish, so I decided to post some of my favorite paintings from the past. Everyone commented on the lace on this one, but it was painting the white carnations that was REALLY difficult. Painting lace is actually quite easy. You just need a very fine brush and a steady hand.

Now that the Foundry sale is over, I hope to have a little more time to paint. This is a painting I started last week that just needs some tweaking. It's the interior of the Parkside restaurant on South Main St. in Providence.

I actually started this painting over a year ago, then put it on hold because I couldn't seem to bring it to a finish. I pulled it out this morning and worked on it for a few hours, lightening some areas and defining some things a bit more. I'm pretty happy with it now.
The Foundry Show continues this weekend, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Come on down and pick up a nice little painting for that hard to please person!

I'm really pleased with the way this one turned out- the fact that half of it is only minimally painted (put the paintbrush DOWN and leave it alone), the red/green color scheme, and the gestures of all the characters. I'll take bids on this, starting at $125.00, to be decided Friday morning. Email me.
