6x6 oil on masonite. . I was listening to Nora Jones song, "My Toes Just Touch the Water", while creating this painting and it turned out to be a perfect match! Your comments are always welcome. Thanks for looking!

When I was in Paris I saw this woman leaning against the wall entrance into the Rodan Museum - I was completely captivated by her blue eyes that I had to paint her! I thought this would be a perfect post to celebrate National Arist Day!

Matthew Shepard 40x38 oil on canvas
I was in Art School when Matthew Shepard's life was taken so tragically Oct 12, 1998 because he was gay. I was so distraught over this hate crime that it compelled me to paint this painting -- which says it all if you are familiar with his story.
With all the recent news about the 6 boys who's lives also ended early because of bullying and hate crimes I felt the need to address it here on my blog by posting this painting.....

18x24 oil on canvas. Click here to purchase. I changed up a few things while creating this painting. First were the color choices in my palette - I really wanted to use more muted colors, ones that were soft and monochromatic. And secondly, I used a palette knife more than a brush! Very unusual for me but I have to say it loosened me up and forced me to work the whole canvas! I'd love to hear any comments you may have! Thanks for looking!
