This is a design my daughter and I came up with for the Improv Troupe I belong to named "The Royal Berkshire Improv Troupe". I tried to make it fun, funny and eye catching. I hope it may be used for future performances, marketing etc. The letters RBIT will be printed on the highway just under the belly of the frog. This was pure fun to do. The design of the frog was my daughters creativity.
I have started painting in a new style with new materials, to me, with a different approach than my oil paintings. I would love to share them with you. Please take the time to visit my new blog, not to replace this blog. The new blog is called "Whimsy, Wit and Wisdom, paintings with playfulness". I will be posting my newest painting this evening. Let me know what you think! I love to hear your thoughts. You can find my new blog by way of my profile or by clicking on the link on the right of this blog called "paintings with playfullness". Thanks!
A Charming, narrow street off the beaten path in Venice, Italy. It's not a typical laundry shot rendered out of Venice but when I examined the photo I'd taken, I decided to crop off the lower two thirds of it and this was the composition that appealed to me. The painting gives me comforting feelings about spring, warmth, the gentle soft fluttering of clothes on a line and the smell of newly cleaned linens. I also appreciate an eco-safe alternative to clothes drying other than an appliance. Time for me to start hanging the clothes on my line as well. I hope this painting evokes pleasant memories for you.
These paintings were attempted just as an exercise for me but they came out kind of cute so I think I'll sell them in my gallery. I am much happier with the glass on the left but I like the reflection of the lemon in the glass on the right.
I am in my new studio now and painting again. I will be posting a photo of my new studio and "gallery" space tomorrow or the following day.
This painting is another of Venice, Italy. The center of the photo of this painting is quite washed out. It has lost alot of detail and color from the painting. I haven't mastered capturing a great photo of one of my paintings yet.
This is the view I had just outside the entrance to my hotel. I was very lucky to have stayed in such a quaint, charming hotel as Hotel San Moise. I will return to Venice someday.
