"Red buds and Rain"- springtime in my home town.

11"x14" oil on canvas. "Red buds and Rain" 

It was a rainy day in Liberty, Missouri. The spring trees were in full bloom and the fragrance of lilacs were in the air; the rain just deepened the colors and the towns people insisted on getting out. 
A very nice gal, who sported a Royals shirt, paused for a moment in the crosswalk.
Another nice lady took photos and sent them to me. 

To quote a friend of ours: " it's nice to be nice". 

Cheery spring!

Contact artist to purchase
Thank you.

The Youth Of Marianna-Oil on Canvas

© on canvas/10" X8"/The Youth of Marianna
Marianna, Arkansas: Some of the students in this small rural town paused from their meandering stroll to pose for me in the evening sun.
 I love painting cloisters of figures. 
These boys sort of travel as a unit and it was no problem for them to line up for a unit
hug.The systematic arrangement of these figures along with the color and shapes of their sagging, curvy pants, and the evening light on their warm brown complexions provided a dynamic exploration of color, light and simplified brush strokes.

It is one of my 2 entries selected for the 2015 MVIS juried exhibition in St Louis, MO (location below.) 
  The painting is for show and sale at the venue below:

It just makes you paint faster.
