Back to the marsh

I've been creating some new landscapes... here's one of my recent marshes, trying to capture the late afternoon glow...

Latest commission...

This was a fun project.  I just finished this commission and the subject has given me permission to post it here.  He enjoys music, so I collaged the score to La Traviata's Sempre Libre onto the canvas, and then painted his portrait over it.    He chose the color palette from looking at some of my latest paintings.  I was so pleased he was happy with it.  I like how the musical score is subtle, but once you look closely you see it throughout.

Art show

Yesterday and the day before I participated in an art show in Beaufort.  This was the first show using the new tent and display system in which I recently invested.  The booth looks gallery-like!  Its more work to set up, but looks very nice.  The higher roof lets in more light so the colors in the paintings are set off nicely.

Getting ready for the show in Beaufort in a couple weeks.  I'm excited about a new Light Dome tent I've ordered.  It should look much better and provide more light for my paintings...

Here's one in progress for the show.  This one is 30 x 30.  See ya there!

Smaller works

I've been busy working on a commission, and so haven't had much to post.  Last week I took a break to finish up some 12 x 12 canvases I had started earlier.  I took these three up to New Bern Artworks last week.
