Janet's Kitchen Art I love it when people who have collected my art share with me photos of it in their homes.  Here is one from Janet who has purchased several of my paintings, most recently “The Farmer’s Market”.  This is how she has it  hanging in her kitchen with two poppy paintings that she also purchased.  Love it!  Thanks for sharing this with me, Janet.  And thanks for collecting original art!!!

Abstract Pats Fav Pat’s Favorite is an acrylic abstract, 12″ x 12″, on gallery wrap canvas.  From time to time one of my students wants to experiment with abstract.  That happened last week in art class so this is the demonstration painting that I did while explaining abstract.

One of my favorite students, Pat (see her here), is not a fan of  abstract so I named this for her.  🙂

Tropicana Field Tampa Bay Rays

Tropicana Field
Tampa Bay Rays

Tropicana Field, home of the Tampa Bay Rays, is the 16th ball park in the series of 30.  More than half way now.  Woo Hoo!  This field is another of the domed fields.  I don’t find them as interesting to paint as the open air fields.

Wed Morn Sam with ShadowThere has been so many great photos of students with their art to post lately that I didn’t want to forget to get this one in.  Sam just joined my class about a month ago.  She is a wonderful young artist and she just completed this beautiful painting of her dog Shadow who just turned one!  Great job Sam!  Keep up the good work.

Paint Party JulyThe terrific thing about painting is that anyone can do it.  If you have the desire to paint,  you can learn to paint.  Paint Parties are a chance to learn something new with a great group of friends.  A little food, a little drink, a lot of laughing.  And in the end you have  a new painting.  Why don’t you get a group together for a party of your own?

Last night we had a fabulous group of painters for their second party and look at the wonderful work they did!  Super work everyone!!!  It was so much fun.  Read more about paint parties here.

The Wednesday Night Art Class always has a great time.  These “girls” have been my longest running art students.  Maybe because we have so much fun together.  Last night they surprised me with a birthday party.  (My birthday was Tuesday, the same as Jed’s.  Read here.)   Thanks Shelly, Pat and Jean.  Even with all the eating, singing and laughing, we still got around to doing some painting.  Thanks again!
