Line of Thinking

                                           Line of Thinking   20x16 oil/linen

Okay, the challenge continues.  What is she thinking?  I credit my husband for the title.  The laundry is hanging in my yard, but the figure was transported from the Peggy Kroll-Roberts workshop last fall in Scottsdale. Yes, we do have summer in Vermont.  It just doesn't last long.
Thanks for looking....  and thinking.

In Concert

                                            In Concert    12"x12"   Oil on Linen  N/A

I'm way behind on posts, I know. The figures are from a dance concert in the Art Institute of Chicago.  Little did the dancers know that they'd be immortalized inspecting an antique bedspread for dryness.

Don't Faint

My sister, writer Melanie Sherman, claims that she will delete me from her blog roll if I don't post something.

Patissier 8x10 Oil on linen panel SOLD
What can I say? I had to capture this scene. The blast of sunlight from above pushed the rest of the Boulangerie into moody darkness. This is actually a study for a larger piece but I needed it for a show and now it's hanging in someone's house. I like it when that happens.

Afternoon w/Dona

12x12 oil/linen

My sister Nina and I had such a great time doing a portrait painting switch-off last spring, that I convinced my painter friend, Dona, to try it. The little one that I managed to start that day (previous post - months ago)before it rained us out, inspired me to have a go at it with photo.

Thanks for looking.

The long awaited portrait pleases the subject. Phew.

Maggie 18x24 Oil on Linen

It's satisfying to deliver the finished commissioned work. This painting was so much fun to do. I love challenges. If they don't happen on their own, I'll create them. We wanted this painting to include items from the family summer home. Wicker sofa, red begonia, art on the wall.
Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your comments.
