Renaissance Lady

I've been making copies of master paintings to better understand their processes. It's great fun, and allows me to become more familiar with portrait painting.

Footloose and fancy free

It's summer, which means no schedule, anything goes. My kids are loving the freedom. Part of me loves the flexibility but the painter in me yearns for the routine, where painting time is guaranteed. I have yet to start on my still life series, the warm weather and bright blue skies call and I must be outside.

Plein Air, that's the ticket!
