Chapel by the Sea

On a trip to Canada this summer, my niece, Holly, took an awesome photograph of this little church.  This is an extremely cropped view of her original photo, but I thought it would make a good study for a larger painting.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Waiting for Daddy


This is a painting of twin brothers, Henry and Michael, and their faithful companion Bucky.  It is a commissioned piece painted from a photograph furnished by their grandmother.  As soon as I saw Anne's photo, I knew that I wanted to paint these sweet boys, and it was a pure joy.  As was Anne to work with on the project.  Meeting new friends via this blog and Daily Paintworks has been such a delightful surprise.  I feel very thankful for all of you and for the daily dose of inspiration that you provide.  Thank you!

I hope you're all having a great week!  Take care and I'll talk to you soon.
