City Girl

City Girl

16in x 12in


This is another painting I will have in the Regions

Bank show. This image came from the web site

of Karin Jurick. Each week Karin posts a photo for

a large group of artists to paint. The challenge

of the week for this photo was to do the painting

upside down. They upload their painting image

to her site "Different Stroke for Different Folks". It is

interesting to see how each artist paints the photo

in their own style.

"Looking Up"
6in x 6in - Original oil on panel day painting
Are you looking down at the pear, or is the pear
looking up at you? It is like the saying,"Is the
glass half full or half empty". I believe in order
to make life sweeter, you must look at the glass
half full. This is why I titled the painting,
"Looking Up". I hope you see your glass half full.

feeling tipsy?!

6in x 6in - Original oil on panel
Dare to be unique...the most inventive and talented people in the world were/are considered "Oddballs".
If more people would be brave and be themselves instead of being what "others" expect them to be, maybe the majority of the people in the world would be much happier.
What do you think? Let me know.

My studio

It is getting late and has been a long day, but I thought
I would post one more photo on my blog. I love it when
artists post photos of their studio on their blog or
web site. It just makes the experience more personable.
Here is a photo of my studio at the Stutz Artist Open House.
We have an open house the last week of April every year.
We on average have around 6,000 people attend the
2 day weekend event. I have one side of my studio set up
as a gallery, the other side is where I paint. We also open
our studio's the first Friday of every month. We have close
to seventy artists at the Stutz Business Center where
my studio is located. It is in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana.
Just in case you are in the neighborhood, it is located at
212 W. 10th Street, Indianapolis Indiana. I am in studio A210.
If you are in the neighborhood on a first Friday, stop by.

Momma and Baby



I wanted to show the variation in the petals of this pink peony. Along with roses, they are one of my favorite flowers. The view of this peony reminded me of a mother and baby.
