Painted this past summer in my backyard. This painting was a little larger but I cropped it. Geraniums are one of my favorite flowers, they make such bold color statements.

This is the second time Rich has modeled for us in his top hat. He's an amazing model, barely moves and never takes a break.
I've been really happy teaching my portrait class at the Portsmouth (RI) Arts Guild. They're really getting into the swing of it. The top photo (below) is my 15-20 minute demo; the rest is my students work.

A few illustrations from my former life as a greeting card illustrator. Watercolor and some pencil or marker on Strathmore or Arches paper. That was before everything had to be done on the computer, in order to save time and money. Most of the type was machine set, but I did the lettering on the Spanish card. To get that humorous look that they wanted, I used my left hand.
I also want to put in a word for another artist, Jackie Garner, who has just written a book called "The Wildlife Artist's Handbook". She has done some fascinating work in Egypt, sketched in ancient tombs where no photography is allowed and helped identify wildlife for the scientists.

The hardest part of this painting- what color is yellow in shadow? It seemed very blue at the top, just under the roof, but much lighter at the bottom of the building. I painted it and wiped it out a couple of times before finally settling on a dull greenish color with hints of yellow ochre.

I had fun doing a demo at the Rowley Gallery in Orleans, MA on Saturday. Did this 18 x 18 in 2 hours (although I fooled around with it a little at home the next day).
