Great Summer so far…….

My painting, “Southern Magnolia” was chosen to receive the Manfred Metcalf Award in the Columbus Artists Guild 2013 Members’ Show. It was a thrill to be so publicly acknowledged as an artist.
The painting sold the same day. What a validating experience! The same day this happened, I was commissioned to paint an old family home. This house has had the same family living in it since 1910. They have a strong emotional attachment to the place and I will do my best to convey that. I’ve finished my preliminary studies and completed the final drawing. Now, I will decide on a color scheme and a value pattern. It is a process.
