Miss Adair was the most delightful young lady to work with during the preparations for her portrait. She carried herself with such poise and was a natural in modeling for me. Love her gorgeous hair!

I so enjoyed portraying my dear childhood friend in this bright red coat that just begs to be painted. "Jenny" is a 12"x12" oil. The painting was recently selected by juror, Rose Frantzen, to be in included in the Portrait Society of Atlanta's Summer Exhibition at Roswell Visual Arts Center. The show runs August 22nd - September 26th.

And we're back!

Though you wouldn't know it from the activity on the blog, this past year has been my busiest in the studio yet. But first off, I have to show off my most special creation as of late, a masterpiece you might say!
Meet Lilla Sanders Mantini
She makes life all the sweeter and gives me incredible joy and inspiration every day.

 I'll be regularly posting my other works of art over the next few weeks, so be on the lookout. Excited for more adventures in art with my new little lover of the arts by my side.
