Summer Flowers

11x14 acrylic on canvas board. You guessed it--another demo for my painting classes at the Museum. It's fun to paint shiny objects. Paint the shapes and colors you see in the reflections and not the object itself.

8x10 acrylic on canvas board, yep, another demo for my Museum painting class. I can't get the same affect with acrylics as I do with oil, but I enjoy the adventure, anyway. My class is beside a huge window, so we can paint landscapes almost en plein air, but not quite.

Museum Bouquet

10x8 acrylic on canvas board. This is a demo I did for my Museum class this week. I don't know for sure what these flowers are, but I bought them for my students (and me) to paint.

6x8 oil on canvas on panel. I painted this from one of the pictures I took on my recent trip to Illinois. It had been raining and the skies started clearing. It was misty in the distance with the sun peeking out at times.
