While visiting my daughter in upstate New York, we took a day trip into Vermont
and made our way up through the islands on Lake Champlain just in time for that long, late afternoon light. Fortunately, I had my camera, and a very patient daughter who was willing to make many stops along the way for photo ops. All of the flat planes and angles of this grouping of barns made for a fun painting to work on. Unfortunately, I couldn't quite get the pink reflected glow of the finished painting to translate as well as I wanted for this posting.
This leather marble bag belonged to my father. Some of the marbles painted here were his as well. Others belonged to my brother, Jim, and to me. The sentimental value of the subject matter, as well as all of the bright, bold colors made painting this piece great fun!

This piece was created using the new Interactive Acrylics. These paints are designed to allow for a longer drying time with the option to rehydrate desired areas for additional work by spraying with water. Interesting.
Growing up I spent much of my time drawing, cutting, gluing and piecing things together. I never thought of it as making art. I just knew I was having fun. While my supplies and techniques continue to change, my desire to create remains...and I'm still having fun! Thanks for taking the time to view my work.
